COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available in filtered (but not pasteurised) bottle at 4.2%.

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.

The_Osprey (2565) - 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.

wheresthepath (1687) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Cask at the Duck in the Pond (Ember Inns), Harrow. Pale gold with a thin white head. Sweet lemon and melon are nice upfront but fade quickly and leave little in the aftertaste. Slightly dry finish but needs to be a lot crisper and with a few more hops- what?s there is pleasant enough but there?s not enough of it.

Very light haze on this paleish gold beer. Bubbly white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light clean malts, light floralness. Very light citrus. A mild floral sweetness runs throughout. Crisp finish. Itís all very light and fluffy, but it works! Refreshing,
