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.

A medium orange-brown ale with a lot of effervescence from strong carbonation. An initially sweet and floral beer which develops a caramel edge down the glass. The elderflower is also noticeable with time and the maltiness becomes more apparent. There is alsoa hint of ginger. A medium length after taste of light malt character lingers at the end.

En frisk sommerøl, der smager af hinning og blomster. En god tør humle i eftersmagen, den er bedst kold, og så er det også til gengæld en rigtig god øl

2016 catch up - Bottles at home as part of mixed pack - Generic golden ale. Inoffensive, but it did not taste of much. At the end I came to the conclusion that I didn’t actually like it as there was rather an odd flavour to it. One that I will not buy again.

500 ml bottle. Golden, crystal clear with small white head. Aroma of flowers and honey. Taste of honey and elderflower. Low bitterness, sweet finish, average carbonation. Too sweet for my taste.

ShivanDragon (4120) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2016
500 ml, golden with almost no head of all, Aroma of malts, some honey, pepper, floral, earthy. Taste of malts, some citrus, some hops, fruit and grain, light body, some biscuits and citrus finish

3.4
bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2016
500ml clear bottle bb05/2016. Thicker grainy yellow. Natural bouquet of sulphurous honey cereals. Drinks like a grainy golden ale/Helles crossover, the elderflower coming in like syrup in honey secco, joining hayish bitter notes in a peppery finish. Better and rounder than expected going by the bottle design.
