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.

Creamy light-brown weak head. Light amber-copper color. Aroma is superb rich of honey, orange peel and cloves notes. Flavour is sweet, malty and velvet, slighly vanilla and balance so well high alcohol content. Finish is moderately bitter.

A lovely golden colour, with just the right amount of carbonation. To me, this is how beer should look. Smells great too. It didnt taste at all as i expected, as its slight sweetness combines superbly with its depth and strength. You wouldnt drink gallons of it, but its taste is absolutley fantastic.

The absolute best beer that I have ever tasted. Not the most complex beer ever, but sometimes simple pleasures are spoiled by complexity. The taste is heavenly. Anyone lucky enough to sample this in England, will experience what I feel is the epitome of English Strong Ale. Paid a pound 75 at a Sainsburyís on vacation.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2007 Red-brown. Wow, this is a big beer. Very malty, vinuous with plum aroma. Well balanced. One of the best European barley wines!

Deep golden-orange colour, pours with little head. Alcohol and butterscotch aroma and a flavour to match. Overall this beer was not incredibly complex and was fairly uninteresting. There are better strong ales on which to spend your money.

I agree with person who said it was too strong for its own good, i also sample this at the brewery and wasnít totally impressed, lacked a bit of balance or something.

Excellent aromas of malt and hop resins which lasts all through the beer and for some time afterwards. Head soon goes but colour is nice.Great beer for finishing the night off.

I bought a bottle of this at the brewery. It went in the fridge as soon as I got back to the states. It sat there for about 4 months, waiting for a special occasion. When I finally opened it, the beer was badly oxidized. It had the balance of a good, big beer. But it was too far gone to really tell what it could have been.
