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 the pencilandspoon Beer Swap project.
I was slightly concerned with the pale lagerish smell as I uncapped it, however, once in the glass all was well. Pours a clear, pale gold with a fluffy, lasting white head. Nose of sweetish malts, orangey/grapefruit citric hops, candied fruits, wheat/hay and berry notes that emerge as it warms. Taste is again sweet pale malts and juicy, fruity citric hops, has a medium body, a slightly oily mouthfeel and ends dry and bitter with a little wheat in the finish. It’s not a bad beer by any means but for me the flavor falls just short of the promise from the aroma, if they could match that it would go from good to great.

Fine but not particually distinctive. Very main stream, lacks a hoppy or fruity taste but perfectly drinkable

Cask - golden with a creamy white head; good lacing and retention. Aroma of grass, fruit, malt and a hint of smoke. Taste is fruits with some spice and a bitter end.

Consistently good wether in bottles or from the barrel. Really well balanced and refreshing without being at all citrusy. A light hoppy beer of choice for me.

Aroma: light malts, hay, straw. Appearance: light pale clear gold, medium creamy white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: light bitters intensify, light body, somewhat dry towards the average-long finish. Overall: OK Golden Ale, bit boring. Pint at The Elleray, Windermere.

VRobertovich (27) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Golden beer, medium carbonation. A little oily on the palate. Slight caramel aroma, grassy, citrus and peppery hops, bit of a doughy finish. All right, nothing special.

Very pale yellow colour with a slim and frothy white head. Lemon citrus fruit and light hoppy aroma. Fruity taste of grapefruit and lemon.
