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.

redletter (8) - ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2004 does not count
One big, red, flavourfull mouthfull of beer. Richer than the duke of Westminster, and with a good alcohol kick to remind you this is a strong ale. A cracking beer for the price, highly recommended in winter...

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2004
Bottle
Almost no head retention. Dark golden/amber colour. Red wine and butterscotch aroma. Full bodied, dark fruits, slightly oxidised and lots of caramell. Plus a bit of alcohol taste. Bitter aftertaste with raisins and figs.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - SEP 3, 2004
(on bottle)Didenīt like the harsh and sweet taste at first, but it soon turned into a perfect winterwarmer. Very sweet sent of fermentet strawberries and a depp, golden brown color. soft, allmost tasteless at first, but then the finish hits you and the drink changes totally. Ver full malty mouth after a long wait of 20 seconds and a real kick of alcohol, makes the tones of wood and cognag really come to the surface. Meditationbeer indeed.

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 (6045) - 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) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - 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.
