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.

wheresthepath (2208) - Buckinghamshire, - MAY 11, 2008
[500ml bottle from Asda High Wycombe] Shared with Jim. Surprisingly smooth and creamy for such an overly fizzy beer, but tastes somehow green and unripe - left a nasty sour taste. Not for me this one.

bartlebier (3633) - 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.

I_LUV_BEER (223) - - APR 17, 2016
Served in a tulip glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium long lasting head. Aroma is a lovely blend of elderflower, black pepper, apples and a bit grassy. Taste is very floral with definite elderflower present all the way through, some deep rose and a slight grassy flavour. Very well balanced beer, very easy to drink and extremely interesting. Definitely will have more!
