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.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Amber orange colour. Toffee and caramel with warming alcoholic kick. Sweet burnt toffee aroma, hoppiness is there but the tang is almost burnt off by the alcohol. Some appley fruit, but the toffee is great

DanielBrown (3627) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2005
Bottle at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Finally tried this one (well, I shared it with my mate Matt). Hardcore stuff. Creosote, super-sweet tree sap, treacle and soured strength. This was a bit too overpowering for me. Full of flavour, no doubt, but not drinkably balanced.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 This was an immensely complicate beer, when i opened it, it the aroma was like a tin of baked beans, this left slowly like the head and left a beer unlike any i have had to date, sweet like a barley wine, but malt in there, yet not burnt, and then at the finish when u think thats it, the hops the brilliant hops really great, i should rate this higher if i hadnt smelt the beans, but alroun great great beer. Try it, one of the best british iv had anyway.

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2005
Dark amber, little head. Aroma of apples, malt, pipe tobacco and caramel. Rich, malty flavour, quite sweet, with some bitterness in the finish. You can sense the alcohol, but itís not overwhelming.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2005
Good amber colour and creamy head which didnít last. Wonderful rich aroma: sherry, malt and pelargoniums. The taste was sweet and malty, the long bitter finish exactly right.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - APR 17, 2005
Amber color, low head. Caramel nose and initial flavor, fruity with some hint of cherry, light roasted malt. Tinge of hop bitter at the end, though more sweet than bitter overall. Medium body and a very good balance. Nice one.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2005
Aroma is malty, hoppy and woody, deep copper, tiny tan head. Gorgeous full malt taste, tasty hops afterward. Very well balanced, full bodied, bitter, dry. Terrific! Thanks Michael Robis of Chesters Beers of the World.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2005
Dark reddish-amber w/ creamy pale tan foam. Malty, toasty, earthy, spicy, slightly vinous aroma. Chewy, full-bodied feel. Flavour is deliciously malty, moderately hoppy w/ a spicy, peppery, spirited finish.

Pours bright amber, Nose: woody, earthy with gentle sweetness behind. Very British in style. Alcohol is there thats for sure, roasted malts behind, good bitter feel somewhere between.
