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.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear cherry red with a fading white head and an aroma of red fruits (mainly cherries), hops and caramel. The taste is sweet and syruppy, with hints of ripe red fruits, sweet malts, toffee, brown sugar, some alcohol and in the end thereís bitter hoppiness. A really nice beer! caramel brown white malts fruit hops strong sweet rich fruity orange clear amber thick bitter malty dark colour sugar spice toffee

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle. A - Coppery caramel brown with an average sized foamy white head. Really good retention, especially considering the ABV, that leaves a nice foamy layer of lacing. S - Some caramel smelling malt serves as a springboard for golden fruit (particularly apple, but some pear too) and some floral and tea like hop aromas. A hint of honey in the background along with a hint of breadiness. Alcohol is just barely present. T - Similar to the nose. Strong malt presences creates the base for this beer with a lot of caramel and bready flavors coming out. Interplaying with each other are golden fruit (apple, pear, golden raisin) and floral/tea hops. They wax and wane throughout the sip. Also present in the background is some honey, butterscotch, spiced, and nutty (more sweet than earthy) flavors. M - Medium body with slightly above average carbonation. Pretty smooth. D - Great drinkability. The alcohol is very well hidden and the flavors are well balanced and none of them overpower the others. Easy on the palate and pretty tasty (dangerously so for the ABV). Notes: Best before 01/01/11. A solid beer that is a good example of an English Strong Ale. A touch on the sweet side, but it has enough to counterbalance that. Dangerously easy to drink given the ABV. It didnít necessarily blow me away, but it is definitely worth getting a deserve a place near the top as far as English Strong Ales are concerned.

dynamiteninja (1679) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle. Aroma is lots of deep rich hops and lots of malt make this a very well balanced beer. Very fruity, especially orange. Heavenly. Pours a rich clear deep amber with a thick off-white head that dissipates. Medium bitterness, a full bodied brew. Undertones of sweetness balance this out. Rather glorious on the palate. Sweet and rich! Fullerís, youíve done it again!

mkel07 (4301) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2010
500ml bottle. Dark copper colour with an even layer of dense tan foam. Strong port like aromas burst from the bottle as it is poured. Currants, spiced fruit and plum pudding come to mind. Strong warming flavours that hit all parts of the mouth. Rich and full bodied. Perfect for sipping by an open fire.

floydian1 (1170) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 7, 2010
Heavy brown 500ml bottle into pint glass. Pour is clear copper coloured with a thick collar of cream/yellow-tinged foam that laces nicely. Strong enticing richly treacly and roasted malt aromas with a hint of alcohol. Flavour is rich medium sweet malts with a bittersweet hop finish. Lovely velvety smooth mouthfeel with a medium to full body and low carbonation. ABV very well hidden (danger!). Another winner from this excellent brewery.
