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.

Grumbo (4264) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle. Poured deep amber with an average sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, hop, citrus and notes of light elderflower. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Medium body, slight oily and watery texture, soft carbonation. One of H&W better ones.

AshtonMcCobb (7029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2017
Bottle from Waitrose. Another Badger beer that smells of butterscotch immediately on opening. A bit closer and it's sugar puffs. Yeah, breakfast cereal on the taste too. A bit strong for the style and as a consequence it's a touch sweeter, but that could be absence of hops.

zacgillbanks (5661) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle from Asda, Washington. Golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet herbal and tropical fruit flavour with peppery hops, peach, elderflower and herbs on the dry finish. Good.

radassace (424) - SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours golden with a fluffy white head. Medium carbonation. Nose is floral, elderflower, lavender, straw, honey, light malt and orange. Decent medium mouth feel. Very floral in the taste, definitely get some lavender or parma violet. Elderflower is noticeable too, quite sweet honey like malt taste and finishes lightly bitter with a slight orange peel. Much better than expected, another beer I've been put off trying because of the clear bottle.

dimeon (500) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 29, 2017
Small head with a clear light amber colour. Melon and peach dominate, held in check with a good bitter balance. Great beer!
