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 summerís 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 summerís evening. This divine all-rounder is a great companion for smoky, chargrilled chicken and peppery rocket salad.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2006
Golden amber. Floral aroma, and citrus, and pine too. Lots of citrus hop character here, but the malt still shows. Excellent!

Not very interesting, a little bitter for my taste, but that was it. The rest is like a normal bitter but too dark.

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 (25069) - 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.
