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.

andrewgrevell (2) - kettering, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2006 does not count
bitter after taste, not much aroma, not a very memorable beer. Fizzy in a way ginger beer isn’t!

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 26, 2005
Tasted 19/12/2005. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington. Gold, bright, finely carbonated, lacey, with a thinning crystal-looking white head. Mild grain aroma, with orange oil and slight mustiness. More orange in the flavour, hoppy, with a grainy astringency and an unappealing metallic sharpness. Lingering bitter finish. Lightish mouthfeel, not helped by a tingly overbearing carbonation. Quaffable but certainly not a top shelf brew.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Reddish blond colour with a white head. Great, fruity nose. Lovely, refined and lightly perfumy notes of elder flower - solidly balanced by some marked bittering hops. An exciting beer - could do with a tiny bit more sweetness. 080700

Tasted this summer: Floral (elderflowers) and fruity (citrus) aroma. Nice white lasting head. Lovely golden colour. Nice fruity and hoppy flavour. Good sweet/ bitter balance. Small but lasting finish. A very enjoyable and tasty ale.

Christian (11804) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2005
Golden with a medium lasting white head. Fruity and flowery aroma, almost perfume-like. Same goes for the flavour, perfumed with some hops

Stew41 (1808) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2005
Perfectly formed head immediately after pouring; 20mm of very attractive foam. Old fashioned nose with classic ale notes but a strong hint of fruit and some aromatic hops comes through. Softer and fruity again in the palate with more floral and sweet notes. Almost liquered finish. Not particularly hoppy. Very gluggable style.
