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: í 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.í Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: íthe Cognac of beersí.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2004
Beautiful deep amber colour and a nice clinging head. Extremely malty (toffee) and vinuous with a very warming alcohol presence. Excellent for a cold winter evening. Lacking the complexity and woodlike touch of the Vintage Ales, but still a great beer.

cab (866) - DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
Bottle.50cl. Nice english bitter, with a small hint of diacityl and that gives the beer a good sweetness to the bitter notes of the beer.

Ingevara (863) - SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 Tonnes of aroma. A dark redish brown nectar of pure gold and flavors in a next to perfect mix. It has strength, roundness, maltyness, freshness and just about everything one could wish of a really great beer.

neongolden (847) - LinkŲping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2012 500ml bottle from the LCBO, served ~15C in a Duvel tulip. Aroma: Sweet, grainy malt, candied orange, dusty grass. Appearance: bright copper, clear with an inch of creamy head that lingered and left lacing. Moderate mouthfeel, a little oily. Initially sweet malts, orange, grains, a bit of hop bitterness and some alcohol. Mix of moderate sweetness and bitterness with additional drying from alcohol. Doesnít really hide its strength much. Nicely balanced beer, not as unctuous as an old ale/barleywine style. Could be a little bigger in flavour but would make a nice strong ale for an early fall evening.

Kauge (842) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle. BB 04.2016. Pours a deep coppery amber with a good creamy head leaving some lace. Very nice malty, toasty, marmalady sweet aroma with a bit of red berry sourness, caramel, and a touch of alcohol coming through. Tastes sweeeet, I get jam and marmalade, toasty and nutty notes, as well as a touch of burnt caramel. Itís mostly just malts - thereís only a bit of finishing bitterness. Carbonation thin and not very active. Itís a touch shy of a good barley wine - a bit too thin and lacking boldness. Itís, letís say, a somewhat mellow and lean for that (with all due respect). Might improve with aging - will go ahead and try with another bottle. It is very good as it is though.

kapusil (837) - HUNGARY - NOV 6, 2012
0.33l bottle. Deep orange body, nice beige head. Caramelly aroma with lots of fruityness and a minimal roastyness. Lots of caramel, some chocolate, reisin and bread with lots of fruity hoppyness in the flavor. Big body. Itís like a double IPA. Awesome beer!
