500ml bottle served cold. Gold, white head, elderflower aroma as promised. Floral notes. Elderflower bubblegum and digestive biscuit flavour. This is another blast from the past for me, but I’m sure it used to have more flavour. A bit over-carbonated as well. You can never go back!

3.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Hops, powerfully aromatic. Judging by aroma alone I expected this beer to be incredibly overhopped; the hops are VERY strong in the scent, and unpleasantly bitter to the nose, I find.
Appearance: Beautiful deep golden colour almost verging on a red ale, but not quite. Head is very thin and dissipates swiftly to ring the glass.
Taste: The nose warns of a high hopped beer, but the tongue greets this like an old friend. Sweet, citrus notes, the hops prove to be gentle and very forgiving. Woody notes, gently floral and citrus, and a pleasantly astringent aftertaste that leaves the tongue dry and ready for another sip. Despite the aroma suggesting this should be a bitter beer, it is not at all; the beer lends itself more in flavour to a fruity weisbeir than to a typical golden ale.
Palate: Thin, fizzy at first, finishing with a long, back-of-the-tongue dryness that makes the mouth water pleasantly. The body is light to medium.
Overall: This beer deserves to be called "Champion" in its class. The balance is fantastic, and it is the sort of session beer that after one bottle, you’d be ready to crack open and enjoy a second and third. The grapefruit tones up front are mild and sweet, and the long, dry finish just keeps inviting the mouth back for another sip, and another, another.

Bottle to sampler
Toasted coconut, soap, hay, marmalade, oats. Clear yellow with a little effervescence and a ring of white bubbles. British hops and malts are showcased here, but unfortunately the soapy aroma is there in the taste as well. It's still a nice beer, but it cold be so much better.
