COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only available bottle conditioned.
Production moved from Youngs to Wells and Youngs in 2007.
Ingredients: English Lager malt with Styrian hops.
Champion is an unpasteurised, living beer, matured in the bottle for a fuller, more complex, multi-dimensional, fresher taste. With no artificial carbonation, the only fizz is the natural effervescence created by fermentation.

McWorta (662) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 14, 2012
Fizzy, fast declining white thin head - Floral malt on the nose with a bit fruity bitterness. Dark yellow/golden colour. Rather bitter with a light sour aftertaste ending in a sweet saliva. Light-medium body. Bit oily and medium thin texture. Bit abrupt aftertaste with a left over fizziness on the palate. Enjoyable accompaniont on a sunny afternoon especially in spring.

Lubiere (10496) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2008
A golden ale with a thick fluffy white head. A light malt and peppery hops, very pleasing in aroma. In mouth, a crisp malt with nice peppery hops, quite interesting. Medium bodied. Tasted around Jan 2007.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 28, 2008
Smooth and full of taste. Hoppy character with traces of fruits. Low carbonation and mid-low head. Long lasting hoppy aftertaste with dominant (and a bit unpleasant) sweetness. Quite enjoyable beer.

renffisch (843) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2008
500ml bottle at the hand in hand in wimbledon. It is my youngs bottle of choice, but that might just be because i like styrian hops, homesick and so forth. itís otherwise quite uneventful. it has the tendency of not settling well enough so it often turns out cloudy. Itís hoppy malty and well balanced but otherwise nothing more than a normal golden ale.

Bottle - Golden coloured but hard to pour crystal clear,white head, very hoppy with good body, moderate carbonation.
