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.

500ml brown bottle. Poured a clear ruby amber with gold frothy head. Rich spice roast raisins aroma.Spicy fruit flavour, lovely malt hop alcohol balance. Full bodied oily mouthfeel. Long finish. Tastes like a de-tuned Vintage Ale.

ToolHead (266) - KÝbenhavn, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2004
50 cl. bottle. Served in stemmed ale glass. Reddish amber color. Malty, nicely vinous, and pleasantly full and complex. The alcohol is well hidden. Nicely balanced. Smooth, soothing, and warming finish.

Mathis (48) - KBH K, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2004
This beer is strong, but borring. The flavor and aroma is filled with roasted malt and hops, which makes it bitter.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Amber to copper body, almost no head. Malty nose with a weird aroma. Good malty flavor with some bitterness to back it up. Not to keen about this beer!

jonas (5637) - Garching b. MŁnchen, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2004
Brilliant grassy and pine hop aroma. Golden brown colour, low on carbonation, foamy head. Sherry and crystal malt flavors are in good balance to the hops, very slight alcohol burn in aftertaste. Fullbodied, nourishing and satisfying.

Jeppe (2631) - ōlbutikken, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2004
Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (#38).
Clear amber beer with an ok head. Aroma is sweet and alcoholic. Spices and dark malt - reminds me of a barley wine. Flavor has a fine sweetness without beeing too sweet. Spicy and hoppy and quite dry with a little alcohol present. Nice and tasty.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2004
Dark ale with a fizzy fruity aroma and a strong vineous flavour. Harsh abit on the palate due to hints of fizz, but overall reasonable.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2004
Bottled. Vinuous smell with some berry fruit thrown in. Dark brown colour with little head or lacing. The mouthfeel is very full with a buttery smoothness, blackberries, caramel and a wine like flavour. This beer is very good but belies its strength in that it's not a particularly warming beer

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2004
light hazy ruby colour with a nice creamy head, beautiful lacing, strong hoppy aroma showing red fruits, honey, flowers and cream, full-bodied and oily, very malty and smooth, robust bitterness before a long, dry and warming hoppy finish - a wonderful brew with lot of character - big thank you to fiulijn for this one

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 1, 2006 Mar 06 Bottle. My comment would be much the same as before but with a lower score. Obviously what I needed after drinking too much was an overly strong pint of beer. 3.0
Apr 04 Bottle. Sweet and malty with big alcohol presence. A rather hazy end to a long evening of drinking. 3.7
