COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Previously called Golden Champion Ale
The light, refreshing character of our award-winning golden ale is distinguished by its subtle elderflower aroma, reminiscent of a summer’s evening. Champion is particularly rewarding when served chilled. On a balmy evening in Stanpit Marsh, a cool breeze blows and a calm encompasses the vast reserve. Amongst the wild horses, you may see Golden Champion, a headstrong but loyal stallion who enjoys the warm days grazing in th fields. The subtle elderflower aromas of this delicately floral brew are reminiscent of a summer’s evening. This divine all-rounder is a great companion for smoky, chargrilled chicken and peppery rocket salad.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy light amber with medium white head. Aroma is malt, hay, lemon peel, biscuits and roasted hazelnuts. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is oily with medium carbonation. Finish is long and balanced bitter and sweet with notes of lemon, malt, rye bread and hints of iron. Nice pub beer.

Clear skunk bottle, tesco, 0.5L. Pours pale amber with little translucency and a light head subsiding quickly. Scent is medium body cereal malt, very pretty. Taste is full bodied cereal malt and medium sweet. Finish is moist and dense. Surprisingly good.

500ml bottle. Clear gold/orange with a few small soapy bubbles for head. Aroma is very floral, hoppy and weak malts. Really nice sweet taste. Peaches, floral, melon with a slightly hoppy finish. Shows that a beer can taste sweet and still be nice unlike kestrel super...

Nice beer for those who enjoy a sweet finish, though I found it a bit too sweet. Very refreshing. Bought to complete my tasting of the Badger beers. Decent. 7/10.

mariuszek (388) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 18, 2015
Nice orange golden color, white head, some lacing. Flowery, edelflower and mineral aroma. Same in taste with some barnyard, basement notes which are dissonant here IMO.

at_the_hop (57) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
Flabby and dull. Nowhere near the advertised "crisp". Mild honey, mild bitterness and sour dishwater finish. Stale smell, thin mouthfeel. Crap. Just Crap.

Pours nicely with thin but lasting head well balanced golden ale with notes of honey and flowers rs should have chilled it intyjhe fridge first would probably add to it.

Według mnie najlepsze jak dotąd piwo z browaru Badger. Bardzo przyjemny i pijalny golden ale. Nie jest to piwo przy którym szczęka opada z wrażenia, ale jest delikatne i orzeźwiające, świetne na lato.
