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.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Amber with a small but creamy head. Has a wonderful sweet aroma from toffee and butter. Flavor is sweet as well, some toffee, and turns into a salty and bitter finish. Really good...

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2003

2012-11-08, draught at Locus Publicus, Rotterdam, 7-5-6-3-13=34
Clean amber color, creamy head. Some caramel aroma and flavor; very moderate sweetness; ordinary bitterness, a bit of nutty touch. Not as rich as the bottle I remembered.

2011-08-22, bottle, 7-5-7-3-13=35
Beautiful, bright dark amber color, with generous creamy head. The aroma is malty but also simple, with nuts and tones of vegetables. Good body strength, with moderate sweetness; malt and caramel flavor, decent, unfortunately followed by some vegetables and alcohol; it ends with correct bitterness and a hint of nuts, also with alcohol warmth.
Too much.

2003-10-22, bottle, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Amber color; poor head. Nice malt aroma, strong; wood, cellar. Warming, malty, loads of caramel; very good structure. Powerful. Of course not as much complex as the Vintage Ale, but I liked itÖ

caesar (5296) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2003
Clear redbrown color, medium/short head. Typical english malty hops aroma. Taste is heavy alcohol and sweet caramel malts, with an intense alcohol burn. I guess i better wait for an english beer with refermentation in the bottle, because this is just crap.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2003
Malty aroma. Brown coloured, nice head. Taste is alcoholic, sugar, malts, simple and cheap. Certainly not good.

larsniclas (5699) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2003
Bottled. Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2003.Amber. Warm alcohol-aroma with sweet hoppiness. Sweet and vinous, almost like a barley wine. Flavour from raisins and cognac.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Bottled. Sampled at Stockholm Beer Festival. A nice Barley Wine. Pale amber. Rich sweetish malty aroma and flavour. Notes of dried fruits, orange and perhaps rasin with a warming alcohol feel. Finishes with quite som bitterness, pleasant indeed.

SilkTork (5254) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2003 A straight ahead, full on, heads down, high alcohol beer - a cousin of Carlsberg Special Brew. Interestingly, I have just learned that this is the pasteurised version of Fuller"s Vintage Ale!

And again. It has a nice colour, but is the drink of tramps and winos.
