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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2010
from old notes Brilliantly clear maroon hue under a compact white head. Spicy orange and cracked pepper aroma against a cracker and cookie background with a toffee accent and a bit of whisky-like heat; also a bit of peaches and a bit dusty. Thick maltiness, cut by alcoholic thinness and bitterness, fairly high and clean acidity, moderate hop bitterness. Thick and creamy, soft carbonation. Clean and fresh enough, a little hot from the alcohol; nice malts but might not suffer from being drier.
