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.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2009
Bottle, thx to tarjei. A pale, yellowish golden beer with a small, white head. Fruity on the nose, with some tropical fruits and fine. Not many malty footprints. Quite subtle flavor with fruityness. and some maltyness in the background. Some bitterness to finish it. Dryish and quite thin mouthfeel. A quite pleasant beer, but more than a bottle would be boring. (090116)

Gr0ve (2127) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2009
500 ml bottle. Abv is 4.2%. Golden crystal clear. Medium-sized fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Hoppy aroma with notes of apricot and citrus. Sweet maltiness. Citrusy hop flavours, almost like lime. Light-bodied. Refreshing malt flavours balanced by a crisp hop flavour. Distinct hop bitterness that stays firmly in the background. Overall a light and refreshing beer that is very drinkable.

500 ml bottle, 4.2% abv. A mediumsized, shiny white head upon a brilliant pale yellow-golden body. Nice smell of flowers and ripe citrus, tangerines detetected. Also a scent of hayish hops. Citrus-fruity taste as well, some dry malts and a fruity, light resiny bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel, very refreshing. A really nice Golden Ale.

Rune (7760) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2009
500ml bottle from Centra Colosseum in Oslo. 4.2% ABV.Clear, light straw body under a low, bubbly head. Citric fruity to the nose. Smooth taste of grapefruit and juicy fruit. Soft and dry in the mouth with a nice, but short bitter finish. Would make a great session beer. Very refreshing after a long working day in Oslo [at my hotel room, 22.01.2009].

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2009
Big very white shiny head. Paleish yellow body. Light, fruity resiny aroma. Delicate dry-sweetish floral fruity resiny taste with mealy spicy hoppy notes. Light body. Smooth, soft mouthfeel. Dryish floral resiny aftertaste. Nice, but perhaps a bit low on taste. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2009
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV of the bottled version is 4.2%. Extremely pale and crystal clear yellow colour, moderate white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with strong notes of oranges and tropical fruits. The flavour is zesty and well hopped throughout, with a nice grapefruity bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. A typical "summer ale" which I, however, was quite happy to drink on a dreary January night.

KnutAlbert (5999) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2009
Bottled, a little yeasty residue. Big bubbles. Rich and malty. Apples, oranges, sumer meadows. Crisp dry finish. Another fine take on a boring style from this brewery.
