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’.

Scopey (7097) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. It pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head. The nose is wood, toast, toffee, stewed orange, hot cross bun, raisin and date. The taste is sweet, toffee, raisin, toasted malt, wood, orange peel, earth, light spice, varnish and warming alcohol with a dry, earthy finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Rich, warming and good depth of flavour, yet remains rather drinkable. Good stuff.

MRMedellin (209) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - NOV 14, 2013
When it’s poured in glass a dark orange beer with a stable and persistent creamy foam head is seen. The aroma has some floral and citric notes being prevalent some orange and coffee notes. When is tasted a full body thick can be felt with a bitter end.

mjakopa (219) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours a medium brown/caramel colour with some head. Aroma is sweet and hints of caramel. Body is sweeter but well balanced. Aftertaste is hoppy, floral and somewhat dry but the taste lingers for a while. In general a very drinkable strong ale.

Holmen1 (2603) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2013
Flaske delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivtetsdag en strålende vakker oktobersøndag: dette er godsaker! Aroma og smak i retning av eksklusiv engelsk appelsinmarmelade. Elegant og balansert som de fleste fra Fuller. Refined and understated.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a beautiful amber colour, with a white-cream head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet biscuits, and the inside of a sauna (not the sweat!). Tastes roasty, toasty, slightly spicy. Mouthfeel is very full, alcoholic burn towards the end. Not for me, but it’s a nice beer.

Melkart (316) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - OCT 11, 2013
Strong and balanced. I could taste some bread. The carbonation is soft and the finish is abrupt and dry.

Unde (381) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Bronze coloured ale with small head. Caramel malts, some bitter cherry and some toffee sweetness. Caramel, toffee, some ripe fruits and mainly sweet flavors. Some bitterness at the end. Rich texture and enjoyable Strong Ale.

jmgreenuk (4695) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a clear dark amber colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is rich caramel and roasted malt. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a super liqourice nutty caramel palate. Super smooth and very tasty.
