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: ’ 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.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.

Sweet malt aroma and a taste that is close up to English barley wine. Vinous is a little pronounced, but it has great flavor shades of soft fruits together with malt, characterizes towards a barley. The large group of beer that British denotes strong ales can vary very much in their expression. Therefore, it is almost impossible to set a standard for what is kind of right for strong ales. Fuller has once again branded English ale in a good way with this Golden Pride. It is simply its own and can not be compared with other strong ales. With elegant soft rounded aftertaste where little hoppy bitterness is present to maintain the good taste of summer berries far in the aftertaste, it is a fine ale. I can not get it expressed often enough, but have to say that if Fuller’s logo is on the label, you can confidently put it in the basket. Fuller is the provider of good quality beer, and it applies to everything that is brewed from there.

mzaar (2291) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
Flaska @ Backstage Rockbar, Varberg. Klar medelbrun vätska med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter av malt, torkad frukt och karamell. Smakinslag av malt, karamell, honung och frukt. Nästan så att gränsen till för hög alkoholprocent passeras - känns som att det hade blivit lite bättre med i alla fall något mindre ABV.

butelka, warka 12/05/2016. Aromaty i smak bardzo w slodowa strone, z dosc wysoka, niekoniecznie porywajaca i dluga goryczka. zaskakujaco w strone barley wine calosc, i pod tym wzgledem mile, tyle, ze brakuje chmielowych jakichs, ozywczych nut. dosc tresciwe, nieco lepkie w odczuciu. powtarzanie nie kusi
