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.

Fruity, malty aroma. Dried fruit. Purple fruit. Deep coppery amber color. Head disipated quickly. Flavor is alcohol, malt, American port, and fruit. Hops persist to the finish, but then the malt remains strong. Itís really nice. Itís confusing. It suddenly occurs to me that there is a sort of roughness, similar to Fullers 1845. Maybe this is 1845 on steroids. Hope it gets shipped to the states. And why is this denominated "Golden"?

pivnizub (8868) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle: Reddish amber coloured, mid-sized, quite firm off-white head, visible carbonation; rich fruity (dryed fruit) aroma, a tinge of molasses, a touch of port and caramel; full bodied, rich sweet flavour; long lasting, warming bitter-fruity finish, becoming dry towards the end with a developing aromatic-hoppy aftertaste; well hidden alcohol. A very rich, complex brew, quite easy quaffable, from a first-class brewery !

500ml Bottle Sainsburyís Kidlington 14-04-06. Dark amber, roasted nuts in what is a very poweful aroma. Very good malty (slightly sweet) beer.

Tobias10 (99) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2006
A powerful and very malty beer with a warming alcohol taste( i havent worked out wether i like that yet). Deep ruby colour. If you going to drink this sort of barly wine-esk beer, might as well go for vintage, its only the bottle conditioned version of this.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2006
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Reddish brown colour with a little but nice head. Aroma of Sweet maltness, with hints of alcohol and caramel. Very sweet flavour then malty and some hoppy and alcoholic at the end.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 2, 2006
I was wholly unimpressed with this one. Huge sugars on the tongue and not much else anywhere else. Reminded me of most "doppio malto" available here. Sugary, not even malt sugar, overwhelms everything here. This was on tap. I suppose I should try again given the favorable ratings here.

scotty (1053) - SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2006
This is so well balanced, the sweetness of the malt, the gentle citrus acids of the hops, and the warming alcohol, all work together to produce this top quality brew. A very complex mouthful, with a long lasting finish...and it looks great too!

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2005
Rich, toasty, nutty nose. Deep amber colour with a creamy head. Stunning flavour with - as the description says - oranges, and sweet malt. Finish initially smooth and gradually sharpens into a pleasing, slightly tangy lingering, bitter finish. A winner, and my new favourite from fullers.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2005
Bottled. Dark amber colour, big foamy white head. Toffee, malts and hops in aroma. Plummy, sweet toffeeish flavour with hints of sweet berries. Quite barley wineish beer. Strong bitterish hoppy aftertaste. Wellbalanced and pleasant!

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2005
(Bottled) Slightly hazy reddish amber color with a medium, thick and foamy head. Barley-wineous, quite sweet-toffeeish aroma with rye-puddingy maltiness. Medium to full-bodied, slightly fizzy-carbonated, sticky-sugary palate. A quite nice strong ale - although quite sweet and sticky. Not bad at all.
