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.

DuffMan (6981) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold with a moderate white head showing poor retention. Very nice floral citrus aroma. Mouthfeel is very thin (in keeping with the ABV I guess), but the flavours are nice: biscuity malt with floral and citrus hops in nice balance. Green-stick bitterness in the finish.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 1, 2009
500mL bottle shared with demise. Pours very pale golden, almost water. White head. Interesting aroma - quite sweet perhaps sugary but not in a bad way. The hops that show are quite fruity. The flavour was quite fruity, a candy sweetness balanced with a mild unique hoppy bitterness. This one was 2 dimensional, but very balanced.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2009
Bottle [Courtesy of Paul, thanks buddy for bring this excellent stuff] Average fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Spare display of lacework. Clear yellow color. Aroma of floral, mild ash, hint of grass, mild dusty flower like, mild caramel and malty notes as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor and light sweetness. Dry crisp tasty hoppy finish with what appeared as a hint of liquorish.

yngwie (13948) - 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)
