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.

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.

Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Pint Glass. Supplier: ASDA (Bristol). Rising floral scent and taste which doesn’t quite resolve.

Bamsen78 (5033) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear darkish golden with stable white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt and yeast, with fruity and citric notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of malt and fruit, touches of yeast and some bready and citric hints. Estery and slightly citric aftertaste. Well-balanced and easily drinkable but nothing really extraordinary.

50 cl. bottle from Fakta discounter. Clear, copper colour with a dense, white head. Sweet aroma with toasted malts, caramel, fruity hints and floral notes. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes sweet with toasted and caramel malts, floral hints. Okay Golden Ale, somewhat inoffensive.

Questo birrificio inglese ha creato una ale decisamente interessante. Il colore è oro, molto bello e carico, non comune nelle ale inglesi, la schiuma è bianca purissima. Al naso sentori erbacei. Ottima al palato, con predominanza di malto, e già si può essere un pelo sorpresi da ciò, un equilibrio eccellente dato dal luppolo che sale in un secondo momento, ma sono spezie e frutta a darle un tocco di qualità. Corpo molto leggero come è normale, rinfrescante e godibile, ha qualcosa che altre ale inglesi, più "piatte", non hanno. Davvero soddisfatto.

Cask at Hall & Woodhouse Pub in Westminster, London. It pours a light amber colour with a lasting white head, Aromas is caramel and biscuity malts, honey, floral, English hops, raisins and other dried fruits- Taste is mildly sweet, watery, toffee notes, floral, malty and a little bitter at the end. It is medium to low body and moderate carbonation. It’s a traditional English ale, although a little bit watery to my taste, it has quite rich flavour.
