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.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUL 6, 2007
Pours a very clear copper color with a small, quickly diminishing, off-white head. Very strong apple aroma with some citrus hops, bread malts, and alcohol. Full and smooth body. Hops are more pronounced in the flavor. Slightly roasted, bread, citrus, and alcohol. Finishes nicely bitter. I really wasnít expecting this brew to be this good. Very enjoyable.

FatPhil (8997) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2007
RIch ruddy brown, thin head. Strong apple aroma, says strong ale. Tastes very bitter and richly roasted - almost burnt. Finish is long and woody. A little alcoholic alas.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2007
A nutty fruity aroma. Pours a burnt amber colour with tan head. A malty, hoppy citrus fruit flavour. Smooth on the palate, building up to a fine finish. However, I think the Fullers 1845 has the edge on this one.

Gethinbeer (2114) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 28, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of fruit and honey, melting brown sugar. Fantastic reddish glow with an off white crisp head. Strong alcohol flavour mixed in with nuts. A little plastic but smooth will a slight tang.

Maria (10124) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Dark amber and a creamy, nice head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and dark fruits. The flavour is rich, full, smooth, malty, fruity and full with a nice bitterness, that develops further in the finish. A beer that is worthy of itís name.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 25, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2008 Bottle, pours a strong and bright amber colour with an off-white foamy head. A strong malty aroma, caramal and vinuous, with a whiff of aniseed at the end. A thick vinuous and sweet flavour at first, bready malt through the swallow, and then woody and warming licorice flavours in the finish. Doesnít drink like its 8.5%, but this is a big beer that you would struggle to drink a lot of (and could do with coming in a smaller bottle IMO).

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 11, 2007
50 cl bottle. A beautiful red/amber beer with a small beige head. Malty nose, with vinous and fruity notes. The flavour is caramelly and malty. Full body and the finish is bitter. Balanced beer. A nice ale.
