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.

Gary (1336) - Brentford, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2009
Like a more grimey version of a Fullers Vintage ale.Or a Vintage bottle thatís way raw. I read some of the negative press about this, that its beer for juice heads.Granted ,it aint slick but its flavoursome and thats why I pay my entereance money $.Big and malty .Sweet and thick.Apple ester and dusty hop spices.Caramel and I got cherry in the finish.

SaintMatty (5110) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2009
500ml Bottle - Copper/red in colour. Hoppy and slightly dusty aroma, with dried fruits, sweet malt and grapefruit noticeable. Hoppy and malty taste, with a rich fruity element featuring raisins, grapefruit, spicy malt and caramel. Warming and nicely balanced. The strength is noticeable, but this is still very easy to drink.

Aroma gives a rich promise of hops, colour is clear (brown-reddish). Flavor is tight/narrow, with lots of hops, some nuts and citrus. Aftertaste is bitter and has a bit too much alcohol in it.
