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: ’ 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.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2010
Pours a clear copper amber. Off white head that fades to fine lace fast. Fruity hop caramel aroma. Taste is bit sweet caramel brown sugar. Medium carbonation and body. Smooth, pretty well rounded. Finish is clean and sweet, earthy grainy. Lacks bitterness. Okay brew. Nothing special. I doubt if I would drink it again.

[2652-20091211] Cask. Sweet heavy grainy malt aroma. Clear, dark amber red body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sweet thick syrupy grainy malt flavour. Medium body is bitter and thick. Not bad, fairly golden and pridey.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 9, 2010
Bottle. Clear reddish-copper color with a medium, quickly-diminishing, white head. Nice aroma with biscuity malt, toffee, caramel, fruity notes and some hops. Flavor starts with some sweet chewy maltiness and caramel, and continues with a pleasant, somewhat spicy, hop bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Pretty good.

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
(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.

kwik-lime (1501) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2010
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 I’d go even higher.

Tasted at Den Tatoverede Enke in DK. Was paired excellently with their Sheppard’s pie. Not my favourite Fuller’s 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.
