"This fresh, light, award-winning beer delights with its grassy, crisp taste and zippy floral aroma. Flavours of white grape and melon develop to reveal a subtle bitterness... a taste that is quintessentially English. Perfect with chicken and pasta - and exquisite with fresh Dorset fly-fished trout."

TorbenJensen (1468) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2015
Delicate elderflower aroma mixed with slightly different floral aroma. Foam formation is limited and somewhat poor. Lovely fresh flavor with hints of grapefruit, flower and ease lingering hops bitterness. Is easy to drink, but take the time and discover many pleasant tasting notes along the way. Typicall British fullness.

Kita (1945) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear deep golden color with small frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma is floral, fruity and grassy. Taste starts light sweet malty with toffee and honey notes, following is mild fruity, while finish is mild bitter. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty palatable thirst killer...

Mothroy (91) - - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle at home. Attractive golden brown ale with small head. Aroma is "Turkish Delight", heavy on rose scent which is not unlike spicy American hops which is carried through to the flavour. In this case there I not a lot of hop bitterness. An interesting beer but not a session ale.

jjsint (2467) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle at home from a gift set. Bright gold, like a lager but deeper in hue. Fast-fading head and lots of bubbles. Smell is flowery, perfumed: rosewater with lagery malts. Weird. Taste is very sweet and artificial, again with a Turkish delight theme. Some bitterness pops up if I slurp great gulps. I try it from the bottle to ensure that it isnít my glass (it isnít). Final verdict: strange and a bit of a pointless beer, but not altogether bad. Badger core range beers are often fairly simple & inoffensive but good. So why are they mucking about with this sort of thing?

foxo82 (849) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle as Badger Englandís Own. Blond ale with a pleasant balance of sweet citrus tang and bitter hops finish. Best Badger ale Iíve had. Decent lacing too.
