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’.

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.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUN 4, 2008
Aroma doce e alcoólico de lúpulo. No sabor, doce e lupulado, o álcool sobressai um pouco mais do que deveria, desestabilizando levemente o conjunto. Final longo e levemente amargo, alcoólico, doce e tostado.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAY 20, 2008
Corpo non ingombrante ma non acquoso, aroma lieve e dolce, sapore molto dolce e maltato con retrogusto miele. Alla spina al ReOtan a Napoli.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden amber with a semi creamy off-white head. Fruity and light malt aroma, solid pinewood hops too. Initially sweet and quite dense malty with notes of fruit like banana. Smooth mouthfeel and flavour going into a little more bite before the finish. Finish holds a smooth yet complex malt base with fruit, sweetness, liqourice, caramel and mixed with hops to slowly provide a nice dryness. Great!

Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2008
500ml bottle picked up at Sainsburys, TCR, London. Deep mahogany body covered by a thin layer, displaying nice laceworks. Dark fruity and nutty aroma. Pungent hop resin in flavour supported by anise and berries. Moderate bitter ending with a noticeable touch of alcohol. Perfect transition from smell to taste. Full bodied (a joy to drink at my hotel room, St Giles 30.04.2008)

thebeertourist (4815) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2008
Bottle at The Artillery Arms, London. Pours amber with a medium yellowish head. Quite flowery hop aroma. Fruity, nutty and perfumy flavours, matched by good bitterness. Medium carbonation, quite full-bodied. Delicious.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 Fitting toast to Beckham’s anticlimactic 100th cap in Paris. Bronze ringed with white. Some enticing stemmy green orange/juniper hop notes on the nose, sweetly citrussy with plenty of caramelised malt back-up a bit like a mellow IPA. Flavour marred by too much coarse antiseptic alcohol, whiskeyish booze, and (agian) a dead lingering bitterness presumably the by-product of filtering/pasteurisation. Completely unaromatic. If that’s a word. Vaguely pleasant toffeeish notes, but smothered with sickly, buttery almond (ethanol). A very fine line indeed between this and Bavaria Red/RIP/ Exterminator-type malt liquors served in a brown paper bag. Dead barley wine ruined by pasteurisation and too much booze. I couldn’t finish it.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2008
Beautiful dark amber (almost reddish) with an off wihte head. Sweet aroma of peach, caramel and melon. The alcohol is quit aggresive and warming in a vineous way and there are a lot of malty woody notes, nuts and toffee. The bitterness keeps it from being too much, but nevertheless you should be a couple of guys sharing it.
