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’.

Bel cappello di schiuma bianca, liquido limpido con la giusta carbonazione. Naso liquoroso, corpo morbido e avvoltato, predominanza di malti dolci. Finale con una punta di amaro, retrogusto equilibrato. Ottima birra alla spina.

ERB92 (569) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2014
Caramel, bread, dried fruits, brown sugar, grains and grass in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a rich flavoured and well balanced brew with some warming alcohol in the finish.

brnandersen (2708) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
My English rating # 100! This classic would suit. 50 cl. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Clear, deep amber colour with a reddish tine. Thin, creamy off-white head. Good looking, actually. Fruity aroma with oranges, tangerine, bread, toasted malts, dried fruits and a grass-like bitterness. Some alcohol. Rather rich and malty. Taste is sweet. Medium to full body with a creamy to oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with rich fruits and malts. Lovely, classic brew.

Bottle from Waitrose. Curiously ugly bottle, actually. Glorious deep copper coloured beer. Strong brute of a beer, lots of sweetish boozy malt, barely matched with enough hop bitterness. Some Fullers house character, the yeast and maybe hop blend. Drinks easier than 8.5%, but really sits on your head afterwards. I enjoyed it.

Lovely strong ale with enough character and flavour to make the alcohol strength indiscernible. This is a solid beer, a ’Gate-Keeper’ for the ’Strong Ale’ category..

Foffern (1499) - Bodř, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a golden, dark bronze colour with a medium, light brown head that fades fast. Pretty flat carbonation. Sweet aroma of leather, dried fruit, fudge, heather, oak, liqueur and some hops. The flavour is similar but is a little light. Dry ending. Slick and mouth feel, and has a medium bitterness. A pretty decent and complex aroma but the flavour is surprisingly light. Nice bitterness though.

Aroma: caramel malts, molasses, alcohol, honey. Appearance: dark clear amber/brown, medium frothy beige head. Taste: light bitter and medium sweet. Palate: first the sweets, fruity, oranges, then turning quite bitter in the average-long finish. Overall: very nice English Strong Ale, sweets in the beginning Bottle from Waitrose, Canary Wharf.

adster (554) - HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2014
Intenzív illata pörkölt maláta és karamell aromáját ontja magából, érezzük rajta, hogy nem egy könnyed darabról van szó. Belekortyolva egy rendkívül telt, egész szájat betöltő ízélményt produkál, melyben az illatában megfigyelhető pörkölt, karamellás jegyeken kívül az erősebb imperial stoutokra jellemző zelleres, fás karakter is érvényesül. Erőteljes, testes és igazán különleges, a végletekig kiforrott darab.

minutemat (2911) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle @ White Horse, Parsons Green. Pours deep amber with bright orange aroma. Has a robust fruitiness in the taste with dried fruits, toffee, caramel and port-like characteristics, with lots of bitter malts on the finish. A great barley wine!
