Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Light malty-sweetness and moderate bitter vry well-balanced flavor. Long nice finish. Creamy palate. Much better than many barleywines......

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled) Slightly hazy reddish amber color with a medium, thick and foamy head. Barley-wineous, quite sweet-toffeeish aroma with rye-puddingy maltiness. Medium to full-bodied, slightly fizzy-carbonated, sticky-sugary palate. A quite nice strong ale - although quite sweet and sticky. Not bad at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice. Pours a deep orange colour, alcohol very noticable at first with elements of butterscotch and licorique. Fruity aftertaste, this is a good beer, maybe if the alcohol was a little more disguised Iíd go even higher.

Tasted at Den Tatoverede Enke in DK. Was paired excellently with their Sheppardís pie. Not my favourite Fullerís beer, but tasty. Pours an amber colour with white head. Taste is quite sweet, with caramel malty body, notes of apricot, cloves and grassy bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33L bottle, small stable head, crystal clear and a little pale copper colour, strong aroma of yeast and herbal hops with some earthy notes.
Dominant malty flavours with some nuts and light raisins and a caorse alcoholic presence which is a bit overwhelming and not very pleasant, big bodied. Could be better.

Somebody really like this? I drank Fullers Golden Pride only one time in S√o Paulo, Brazil and itīs terrible, it taste like washmachine water.....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 50cl. Caramel, white pepper, leafy earthy english hops, pear, sweat, pop corn, bergamot orange, salt and wild strawberries in the nose- reminiscent of Youngís special London ale with a lot more butterscotch, diacetyl-elements. Caramel accentuated. Nutty and remarkably leafy. Potato components sneaking in. Complex. Sweetish. Low bitterness. Sweet leafy finish which is reminiscent of caramel. Nice, but dissapointing comparing to other beers froms Fullerís. Iím not a big fan of Cognac. (Michael Jacksonís comparison). This beer definitely doesnít deserve a high rating.

A good brew, howerever it has a bitterness I donít appreciate. It is sweet, and has an asprin-like bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sainsburyís supermarket. Attractive mahogany pour with good fluffy white head. Aroma is oranges/caramel. Tastes of orange, caramel, honey, festive fruits, very rich. A really warming, satisfying and delicious beer and dangerously drinkable. Glad I bought 12 bottles for Christmas!
