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: ’ 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.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.

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 (6374) - 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 don’t know which ones, but they’re lush and I like’m. The taste follows, the booziness isn’t overpowering, but it’s up front and doesn’t fade as do the hops after a bit - you’re left with that pungent, oily grain on your tongue for quite a while. Make it a bit less boozy and it’s a world-beater ... as it is, it’s a cool-weather sipper; contemplative, would be the BeerBistro classification.

Tranquillity (1787) - 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 (8645) - 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 (2995) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2007
Flaske. Ravfarvet med skum der forsvinder hurtigt. Smagen er malt og mere malt, men efterhånden som slurkene bliver drukket træder en bitterhed frem der afbalancere malten rigtig godt. Super øl.

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 (2617) - 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 wasn’t expecting this brew to be this good. Very enjoyable.

FatPhil (13582) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2007
RIch ruddy brown, thin head. Strong apple aroma, says strong ale. Tastes very bitter and richly roasted - almost burnt. Finish is long and woody. A little alcoholic alas.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2007
A nutty fruity aroma. Pours a burnt amber colour with tan head. A malty, hoppy citrus fruit flavour. Smooth on the palate, building up to a fine finish. However, I think the Fullers 1845 has the edge on this one.
