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’.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 25, 2008
Tasted 24/08/2008, 500ml bottle from Regionals (in front of Lars and the Real Girl). Pours a cherry-hued rose gold with an off-white airy head. Big aroma of toffee, caramel and dark stewed fruit. Floral esters abound, a pleasant alcohol note lingers in the bacground and the spicy herbal hop aroma is lovely. In the mouth those aromas continue, with this being a very aromatic beer. It’s all wrapped in a luscious malt sweetness and oily ’heirloom orange’ hop flavour that reminds me of old school Old 95 - hints of liquorice and cough medicine too (in the most pleasant way). Alcohol is warming and, with the late hop bite, begs another sip. This beer is really growing on me and the movie was excellent too.

CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2008
sweet full, typical. Looks grat, pretty good head too. Strong, but more quickly guzzled & palettable than the Belgian - not quite as good, but a damn good effort.

Biscuity and very English tasting. Not as complex as you might hope but still a very nice malty fruity hoppy strong beer.

sinkas (273) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle,IBS, Perth amazingly rich treacle, toffee and malt in the nose, Poured a slightly hazy coppery red, palate is dominated by flavour hops, which detracted form the thick sweetness a little, dare I say I would have preferred this if it had a little less hops..

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 Perfect beer for a wintery Wellington afternoon in front of the fire. Pours amber with a soft white head, sweet malty bready nose with a orangey malt flavours. Malt driven but with a bitterness that stops it being cloying.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Coloração âmbar-médio-escuro, com um creme bege razoável, que se foi rapidamente. Amarga. Álcool acentuado, mas que cai bem no conjunto. Notas cítricas, possivelmente de laranja. Lúpulo. O aroma é muito bom, mas não se desprende facilmente. Álcool no sabor.
