Van de tap in de klep, ABT bier van de maand. Helder roodbruin bier. Ruikt wat zurig en moutig. Smaakt idem. Medium body. De 8,5 procent alcohol valt niet op. Niet zo mijn smaak.

Pours a clear ambery color, topped with a decent and frothy cream colored head. Malty aroma, some roasty notes, fruit and alcohol can also be picked up. Taste starts roasty and sweet, some easy bitterness and a bit of that alcohol in the finish. Not bad, just not my liking, really.

Copper colour with a whitish head. Good aromas of malt and dried fruit. The taste is very rich and complex - toasted malts, dried fruit, figs and marmalade all combine to give a really satisfying flavour. Very good mouth feel. This is a really lovely, subtle well-made beer. Another good one from Fullerís, and great for Christmas drinking.

Bottle - amber with a foamy light brown head. Aroma of sherry, chocolate and roast malt. Taste of chocolatey malt, a little toasty, some dark fruits, sherry and fruit cake. A little alcohol works its way in but its not really unwelcomed. Medium body, low carbonation, nice and warming. Really nice beer for winter.

Bottle from Yamaya on sale. 8.5% surprisingly a reddish amber pour on a beer called Golden Pride. A big sweet fruity caramel aroma that is very malt forward. Farily smooth mouthfeel on a medium body. The taste is a wee bit astringent - mostly malty caramel but it has some fruitiness(plums, stone fruits), light chocolate and bitter astringent notes. Not bad, the 8.5% is not so noticeable making for a pretty decent British beer. As you keep drinking it, it continues to open up and reveal more layers a truly pleasant surprise. The alcohol kicks in in the pit of your stomach with a pleasing warmth on a winter evening.

Difficile imitare una birra cosž. Si presenta bionda tendente allíambrato, caratteristica che tradisce la sua robustezza, con una bella schiuma. Gli aromi sono caramellati e floreali. Nonostante la gradazione la birra rimane giustamente bilanciata e piacevole.

Yum! Fruity raisin aroma, liquid gold a triumph from Fullers, tastes of steeped fruits, prunes, hoppy and rich , full bodied, great for an autumn day or by a roaring log fire at Christmas time, not easy to find so if you see it buy it.
