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.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2009
Toffee malts and apple on the nose. Lots of caramel with a touch of alcohol and a hint of dried, dark fruit. Never gets too sweet despite that and the hops, although a bit in the background, provide a nice counterweight.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle from Waitrose. Amber with an off white head. Hops cut through the sweet cloying alcoholic malt base to create a reasonable balance. One of Fullers better beers.

Ober (2810) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2009
A clear red/copper colored beer, with a thick light beige head. The aroma of fruits, malts and caramel. There are also hops. The taste of thick caramel, not to sweet. There are hints of chocolate with fruits like prune. There are spices in the back. The aftertaste is dry bitter, a little sweet. It gives a warm feeling.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 19, 2009
500mL bottle from Regionals. Pours a red/orange hue with a tan head which dissipates quickly.
A very sweet nose on this one. Lots of brown sugar like a barley wine but has some raisin fruitiness.
Flavour is quite complex. Initially sweet, along with some raisin. Sweetness is balanced mid way with a good bitterness. A very mouth filling beer, and there is a bit of spiciness right near the finish which is long and bitter.
This is like a very drinkable barley wine. It would be interesting to try this freshly brewed, so the hops can flourish more.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle. Dark amber with white, thick head. Malt taste, hay. and some alcohol. Maybe some dark fruit. A bit heavy.

gastronaut (6) - SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2009 does not count
Pours a dark amber with a respectable head that settles rather rapidly.Very light, malty flavour. Complex malt flavour with quite a lot of sweetness and some fruity esters. Alcohol warmth, raher low bitterness, good mouth feel. A well crafted beer but not my cup of tea.

LanceUppercut (139) - SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2009
A nose of chewing gum and green apple. The beer pours a dark reddish color, not so much foam. Taste is apples, toffee, butter and alcohol. Itís reminiscent of both Old Tom and Nils Oscar Barley Wine, in a way. The beer is a good sipper, but Iíve had better.
