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.

Appearance: mahogany red colour. Medium head, beige colour and persistent. Aroma: caramels malts. Yeasty with reminiscences of sponge cake; toffee, sugar, ďalfajorĒ, vanilla and wood touches. Sweet-fruitiness of plums and figs. Liquory like cognac and whisky. Flavor: sweet caramel malts; similar touch at aroma, candy, toffee, butterscotch, truffle and vanilla. Some spicy notes, such as cinnamon and clove. Reminiscences of ripe fruits in syrup like plums, figs and blackberries. Warming and liquory, like whisky. Finish with slight oxidize and mineralized touches. Light hoppy, slight dry from toasty malts. Palate: medium body and semi-viscous. Light to medium carbonated. Exquisites liquory, candy and toasty notes. Good balance. Very advisable.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Pours a medium to light amber with short lasting white head. Aromas of fruit, malt, and alcohol. Very distinct flavour with hops, fruit, caramel, and roasted barley. Very warming palate, though the alcohol is not as well balanced as I hoped. Overall a quality barley wine.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle (500ml). From Waitrose. Lovely clear copper pour, large lasting fizzy-frothy beige head. Pretty big aroma here, alcohol, rye malt, pungent nut oil and full-on yeast and hops - I donít know which ones, but theyíre lush and I likeím. The taste follows, the booziness isnít overpowering, but itís up front and doesnít fade as do the hops after a bit - youíre left with that pungent, oily grain on your tongue for quite a while. Make it a bit less boozy and itís a world-beater ... as it is, itís a cool-weather sipper; contemplative, would be the BeerBistro classification.

Tranquillity (1581) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2007
Beatiful colour of medium-dark mahogany, small white head. Very strong malty aroma, some toffee and menthe even. Taste a bit too much of alcohol, but is very good to enjoy after the sauna. Cheers!

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Clear dark brown body. Dry and burned barley malt aroma. Pleasant smooth barley malt flavor with a suitable amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste.

Defreni (2866) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2007
Flaske. Ravfarvet med skum der forsvinder hurtigt. Smagen er malt og mere malt, men efterhŚnden som slurkene bliver drukket trśder en bitterhed frem der afbalancere malten rigtig godt. Super Ýl.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with a short lasting light brownish head leaving some lacing. Toasty malty, apple and bit spiced hoppy aroma with caramel. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a surprisingly good toasty maltiness and caramel, nice mild but still profound spiciness, bitter hops, alcohol and some dark fruits. Toasty and spiced, dry bitter finish. Like a thin version of a good Belgian spiced ale.

Capa (2425) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - 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.
