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.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2011 Pored from a 500ml bottle, very sweet on the nose of caramel honey over ripe dark fruit and fruit cake Off white head with ruby body medium to full mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation. fullers havde done a great job of masking the taste of alcohol, un sessionable due to its richness.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2011
Clear golden with a off-white head. The nose have a lot of sweet caramel and butterscotch, but there are also some dried fruit, orange and mixed undefined hops. The rich mouth goes along the same line, just more of it. A nice medium bitter ending. Altogether a very good strong ale at a comfortable price. Iíll have more of this one alright...

Dry ale. Immediate sweet porty tones mixed with malt and a hint of brandy. Lingering bittersweet finish. More dry malt and a hint of hops. Nice!

alexcandy (63) - Whitstable, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2011
Aroma-honey,coffee,slightly sweet maybe nuts Appearance-Copper, thin off white head Taste-sweet but also just a little bit bitter. Tates strong in the same sort of way a sweet sherry would (what I mean is like a sweet drink bit with a little kick to it. Overall- I like this, could not drink a lot of it and for me one 500ml bottle would be my only beer for the night.

01.01.2011. 0,33l Bottle. dark golden colour with a thin layered white head. At first this beer is rich with malt sweetness and notes of strong alcohol. After a few sips it gets more smooth and youcan taste the strength in this beer. Very good.
