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.

Clear golden with a large off white head. Sweet aroma with toasted malt, caramel and alcohol. Flavour went the same way. Somewhat boozy finish.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
Rich and chewy, this has the rich consistency I would expect from a beer of this strength. The aroma is fruity and the flavour predominantly malty at first. It is very sweet fruity, with dried fruit, rind, and perhaps a hint of apple. The finish ushers in warmth and bitterness with a suggestion of citrus.

mikkopen (818) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2008
500 ml bottle. Very nice amber orange colour, decent-sized dense head. Fruits and berries, caramel malts and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. The flavour is caramel-malty, with dark fruits, oranges, spices and a warm bitter finish. Balanced and very enjoyable.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle from Frederikshavn. Ruby beer, fruity aroma. Rich, maly, vinous. Sour cherries, redcurrants. Quite complex, but not as outstanding as the cask version.

KyotoLefty (6174) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 11, 2008
Big aroma of oranges, caramel, molasses, alcohol, dried fruits, and hops. Deep orange and amber color with a minimal but sturdy head. Sweet, caramel malts, with dried fruits, orange, cherry, a touch of tobacco, alcohol and just enough hops to keep it from cloying. Nice residual sugars, tasting like molasses. Nice balance, sweet but not overly so. Great winter warmer.

jonno (2274) - JAPAN - OCT 23, 2008
A classic strong brew. Pours a lovely amber tawny colour and has a potent alcoholic nose. The alcohol is present but not overpowering and it has a moderate bitter finish. Good price, great brew
