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.

This one had a lot of shit going on, another one that just didnít make sense to my tongue. Skip this.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Pours red-amber with a quick light brown head. Nose is quite sweet and dominated by brown sugar and apples. Flavor is a bit more tame and a little on the generic side for English ales, but is quite drinkable. Alcohol does not factor. Decent stuff.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty, caramel, dried fruit and a little alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish with some alcohol. 270511

booldawg (55) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
taste and aroma does indicate the 8.5% abv strength. Vinous overtones, tingling sensation left on tongue. Nice premium strength ale to savour.

Blairgus (4047) - California, USA - APR 18, 2011
dark amber colour. malty w/ faintest hints of red fruits like apples r cherries. had it cold so it was crisp. it is higher in alcohol so hints of raisin. could taste more as it warmed up. it is a big ale but not particularly nice. has an odd, bitter aftertaste that i donít think comes from hops.

Bottle 500ml @ home
[Trade by Dedollewaitor] Pours clear reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt and caramel. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Davros (2726) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2011
Pours copper with a large, slowly fading head. Nose shows lots of sweet malt: heaps of brown sugar, raisins, bread and butter pudding, golden syrup and a little alcohol. Very complex. Similarly rich flavours, although the booze is more evident. Big syrupy malt dominates but some nutty hints are introduced along the way. Booze is a little bit too full on. Soft carbonation could be higher.

ogivlado (7132) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 25, 2011
Bottled 500ml. - from the London Pride store in Ljubljana, shared with Marko.
Clear cooper coloured, small off-white head that went away slowly, sweet candy (sugary) nose. Sweet malty, weak hoppy and too exposed fruity taste. Also quite alcoholic. Alcoholic finish with hint of prunes. Another overrated Fullers.

Marko (4798) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 16, 2011
Bottle from the London Pride store in Ljubljana.
Poured a copper-brown-amber bodywith a small off white head that went away slowly. Sugary sweet malty nose. Vaguely orangey sweet malty taste, some light alcohol. Hop? What hop? Couldíve passed this off as a Faroese beer to us that day. Who are they kidding? This mustíve taken a huge hit to explain the difference between what some are describing and this. And the same goes for the 1865.
