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.

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 28, 2010
50cl bottle: Reddish brown colour with a vanishing head. Very malty aroma with hints of oxidation, yeast and herbal and tobacco-like hoppiness. The mouthfeel is really full, in the flavour, thereís a big cookie-and-caramel-type sweetness, which is okay but bordering on becoming cloying - and thatís an adjective I donít use inflationary. I mean, if you canít stand sweetness in a beer, you should probably avoid this. I thought it was actually a pretty decent sipper. There was a nice "british" hoppiness and slight roastiness to counteract a little.

hawthorne00 (3051) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2011 Amber with a large thick beige head. Smells of alcohol, complex toffee, muscatels, spicy, fruity and grassy hops. Big initial caramel sweetness fades into dried fruits then yields to a spicy bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel is just short of syrupy. Malt complexity is subtle and the hops are lovely, but goodness itís boozy.

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2010
Pours a deep amber with a yellow-white head which lows quickly, leaving a circle of lacing around the rim of the glass. Aroma is malty with vanilla, marmalade, and an artificial banana sweetness. Alcohol is present in the nose. Taste is sugary orange, vanilla, a light zest and pepperiness, bread and brandy. Mouth feel is sticky and creamy, leaves a good covering on the palate. Finish is a bit too sweet and doesnít develop on the flavours. More hops would have been good to counter some of the sweetness, but as a desert sipper this is a good beer. A little raw with the alcohol considering itís only 8.5%, but for the price and availability, itís well worth it.

LordDrachen (116) - reggio emilia, ITALY - MAY 31, 2010
Excellent. A dark amber/red ale with light brown head. Aroma is malty, fruity (plum, cherries), sherry-like, some bread and roasted too. Taste is sweet with an average bitter end. Good carbonation, medium body. A great ale.

Kavu (3307) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2010
Pours reddish brown with a medium head. Flavor is fruits and paint thinner. Thick flavor is malts and fruits with some hops in the end. Very nice ale despite the aroma.

AGAquino (665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 500ml bottle bought in Port of Spain, West Bees supermarket. Pours reddish amber with foamy white head and some, not lasting lace. Aroma of malty dried fruits, slight hoppy bitter and candy. Flavour is thick with traces of sweet malts, toffee, and sugar. Alcohol is noticeable but subtle. Nice lingering aftertaste. Most probably, the best beer available in Trinidad.

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 (1694) - 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!
