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.

Stefano (2007) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2006
Pours a clear gold colour with a medium but rapidlt diminished head. A kind of weird aroma. Sweet flavor with hints of elderflower. Very fresh.

hepburn82 (143) - SCOTLAND - OCT 13, 2006
Bottled. golden, pours to leave thin head with minimal lacing. Big malty nose with something more buttery, herbal and sharp. Slightly cheesy note somewhere. Well balanced palate - medium - and fruity with something else - can’t quite put my finger on it but reminds me of dandelion and burdoch for some reason. Nice hoppy finish that lasts. Gassy-induces too many burps. Overall, fairly enjoyable. I endevour to try more Badger.

3.9
tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Very fruity, lightly peppery with plenty of floral character in the nose. Clear, deep golden coloured body is topped by a fine bubbled and lasting white head. Fruity sweetness and toasty malts are balanced by moderate bitterness with peppery and gingery spiciness apparent especially in the aftertaste. Medium body with lively effervescence that awakens the tongue. Pint glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Feniton Spar, May-06).
