A light refreshing blonde ale brewed using a new variety of hop, creating a citrus fruit flavour. Originally brewed as a seasonal ale, Golden Pippin has become such a favourite it is now produced all year round.

Bottle from Copper Dragon Brewery, Skipton. A very pale golden beer with a rich malty and toffee apple flavour followed by vanilla, marzipan, coconut and Christmas cake on the finish. Nice.

Holmen2 (2636) - NORWAY - NOV 29, 2015
Backlog. At the Vine Inn, Manchester, beginning of May 2013. Very pale straw colour. Slightly uneven, but persistent off-white head and lacing. Soft aroma with lemon and lime marmalade. Pale malt in taste and bitter citrus in aftertaste.

Drank at two pubs in Yorkshire, one of the best pale ales ive ever tried. Nice pale colour, with the most wonderful creamy white head and a great array of delicate flavours. Most enjoyable

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Cask at The Vine, Manchester. I see this beer everywhere so it must have some sort of following but I fail to see the appeal. It’s a run of the mill golden ale, pale amber in colour with an enduring white head. It has biscuity malts and a long, bitter finish but I detected none of the advertised citrus. A little watery on the palate. Maybe it was an interesting beer once but it’s nothing special by today’s standards. Perfectly drinkable though.

The_Osprey (5459) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Cask at the Clachan, London, served in a glass tankard. Hazy yellow, still, small vague attempt at a head. Nothing in the aroma. Body is medium, smooth, no real carbonation. Taste is thin and watery, suggestions of citrus (like over-diluted squash), background floral, soft bitterness builds over time. Pretty plain.
