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 summers 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 summers evening. This divine all-rounder is a great companion for smoky, chargrilled chicken and peppery rocket salad.

PictouRx (172) - Ontario, - NOV 25, 2011
Pours a straw golden color, with a pillowy 1 inch head. Aroma I get hints of tangerine, bread, some floral notes but not powerful floral or fruit just all subtle. This is a light smooth beer, with taste of sweetness and little bitter hint. Overall a interesting beer, I could drink this in warmer weather.

bartlebier (3821) - 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.

Pours golden, clear. Just a lacing of off-white head. Floral aroma. Medium-full body. Biscuity/woody/cardboardy flavors, giving way to something peppery.
