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’.

Ambrée orangée, translucide. Bonne mousse blanc-cassé persistante avec gros lacings. Maltage sucré caramel et un peu toasté. Petit houblonnage sur le pin. Fruitée (banane?). Alcool bien présent mais accompagne bien. On sent que c’est du lourd. En bouche bien sucrée. Houblonnage fin, avec une amertume en fin qui balance un peu le fort côté sucré. Très complexe et gros caractère.

An amber beer with light orange head. The aroma is malty sweet with notes of fruit, wood, and spices. The flavour is sweet and strong coming from a great malt blend.

mR_fr0g (8027) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle shared with Sarah at home picked up from Sainsbury ’s/ Aroma is raisin and sweet malts with some English yeast esters. Flavour is composed of sweet dark unrefined sugars, melanoidin sugars, rounded nutty amber malts. Sweet dark dried fruits and raisin. Palate is pretty sweet and full bodied, moderate carbonation. Another London tick! Pretty good malt forward beer, good English yeast character.

Zlotta (1314) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
0,5 l bottle, best before 19/11/2015. Crystal clear, mahogany with a thick, foamy, stable, tan head. Looks absolutely perfect. Lovely and strong, malty aroma of prunes, molasses, and candy sugar with hints of tobacco and coffee. Sweetish taste of molasses and candy sugar with hints of prunes, coffee and sweet, dark cherries. The finish is medium bitter with still much sweetness in the background. Quite long-lasting, rather alcoholic and warming. Very pleasant though. Medium to full body, chewy, creamy mouthfeel, flat carbonation. Very deep and complex beer that is full of different aromas. My favourite beer of Fuller’s so far!

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Clear crimson, strong white head. Caramel, dried fruit and light roastiness on the nose. Full-bodied, balanced bitterness and delightful sweetnesa. Finishes bittersweet and warming finish. Nice, what!

jjsint (2023) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Dark golden brown, a fair bit of carbonation. Earthy aroma with honey and brown sugar. Sweet taste with a balancing bitter hop. Finish and aftertaste are a bit too bitter for this type of beer. Medium body. Warming palette, but tastes less alcoholic than it is. Pretty good, but has its faults. I expected more to be honest.

jamestulloch (3083) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Ruby body with no head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of caramel, honey and wood. Flavour is quite Belgian - sweet, strong and well rounded. Notes of stewed fruits, earth and warming spices. Thin body with a slightly oily texture. Light fizz. Doesn’t look great but is very drinkable for its strength.
