Badger's England's Gold summer beer is being launched in stores this month.

The 5% abv golden ale, which won the Tesco Beer Challenge last year, is the most recent Badger beer launch from brewer Hall & Woodhouse, following 2005's Stinger and First Gold.

David French, group head of brands, said: "We are delighted that our commitment to delicious and innovative new beers has been recognised."

Tesco has exclusive rights to the beer for 18 weeks during the summer period. The beer, priced at £1.69 a bottle, is described as having cool flavours of white grape and melon with a subtle bitterness.
