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’.

hohops (136) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Appearance- quite clear, dark orangey amber, a small beige bubbly head which disappears quickly. Aroma- orangey, marmalade, raisin hints, malt, tangerine, fruity, a bit of hops. Taste- fairly full bodied, lots of zesty, orange fruit flavours, marzipan hints, sugary marmalade, smooth and delicious. Excellent.

Roublard (159) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 14, 2014
Bottled. Appeared impressivly dark amber color with a slightly soapy white foam. Aroma is based around pretty expressed malts and slightly touched by fruits. Tastes a bit sweet and sharply hopped by the very edge. Very well dealed with a lot of alcohol, it is clear that the beer type is very strong, but you know about the exact level only from the lable (or after getting a couple).

Cor alaranjada, com espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de malte, caramelo, frutas secas. Sabor de caramelo e frutas passas, com médio dulçor e amargor. Final com sabor de conhaque que permanece. Muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Consistent foam with beautiful deep amber color. Malty flavor which balances bitterness. Although 8.5 abv, nice complex flavor.

Ótima cerveja para dias quentes. Aroma herbal acentuado, mostrando que o lúpulo foi bem trabalhado em sua fabricação.
