COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle. Also available in keg for export only. The very occasional cask version is only available in the UK and has a separate listing.
Goldings hops and Golden Promise malt.
At 8.5% ABV, Golden Pride guarantees a superb range of flavours, that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates. Our brewers describe Golden Pride thus: í deep amber in appearance, Golden Pride is full bodied, of moderate bitterness, moderately hopped and rich in malt. Full flavoured, and reminiscent of sweet orange oil, toasted grains, and bread. Rich malty aromas lead to a similarly styled palate, with an intense finish. Sweet and bitter flavours are expressed in good balance in this weighty brew.í Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: íthe Cognac of beersí.

Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly malt with some hints of citrus. Flavour is long lasting malt slightly caramel with a small bitter finish.

Hallstein (257) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2015
Aroma of light candied fruit, apple and malted biscuits. Flavor is medium bodied with bready candied malt, light fruityness with a slight warming alcohol finish. Well balanced. Quite a good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rikstar (1295) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
Flesje bij slijterij in de mare vandaan. Koper met een snel slinkende ivoren schuimkraag. Geur en smaak met appelstroop, ijzer en redelijk zoet, boozy. Niet echt mooi gebalanceerd, mist wat Body.

Bottle. Copper body, medium head. Why the hell is this named "Golden" anything? Dear Fullerís brewer - if you think gold looks like this then Iím afraid you have been paid in copper pennies all this time. Aroma has sugar and some fruity English hops. Too sweet, Iím already suspicious of the taste. Here it comes, the taste is overly sugary with medium level hoppiness and plenty of syrup. So sweet that it naturally covers all the booze and no wonder it creates an impression of a balanced brew to some. But itís not. Mildly jammy finish. Perhaps five years in the cellar could add something to it if it wasnít pasteurised. But it is. Their Vintage Ales are so much more vibrant when cellared properly. This, howerver, reimains a quite useless sugarbomb.

lello4ever (240) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Strong ale inglese della Fullerís. Ambrata con schiuma leggera, al naso prettamente caramellata. Consistenza leggermente oleosa, pur tendendo al dolce ha una spiccata amarezza in retrogusto. Piuttosto forte e alcolica con 8.5%. Non mi ha molto convinto nel complesso.

Deep amber reddish color, with little head. Aroma of caramel,oak, malts, friuts fruits. Taste is the same with no hidden alcohol note. Medium body, average carbonation. Interesting beer but no superlative.

suurjuust (1715) - ESTONIA - APR 5, 2015
Clear amber orange, small off-white head. Nose is malty, fruity and spice notes, touch of alcohol. Flavor is dense malt and caramel, almost chewy, some fruity notes. Finish has a nice Goldings bitterness and an alcohol bite. Lingering caramel and malt, boozy warmth. Lots of alcohol, but it balances out.

panzerwolf (172) - FINLAND - APR 3, 2015
Pours amber. Taste has grass, hops, a little bit of caramel. Just a slightly sweet taste, not much alcohol despite the content. A little bit bitter towards the end, in a very welcome way!

Clean dark amber color, small beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, dried fruits, nuts, honey, spicy hops. Sweet and mildly bitter taste with hoppy finish and sweet malty aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Quite good English strong ale.
