2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 As nose meets glass, Golden Pride exudes a strong smell of alcohol, too strong for my tastes because it masks the smells of oak and cinnamon which can be found on closer inspection. The beer is a dark amber/red in colour, fairly attractive with a quickly diminishing head. After tasting one must again feel that alchol plays to large a part and that although it provides a pleasant, warming finish, the other flavours in this beer are simply not strong enough to compete. A pleasant beer, but the drinker must seek out the notes beyond the alcohol as they do not immediatly reveal themselves.

From Carrefour. In english pint glass. Watching Breaking Bad 1x03. It smells nice, but although it doesnt taste bad, I dont completly like its taste, which is on the sweet side.

Che meraviglia questa golden pride. Splendido ambrato con schiuma traboccante, aroma netto di malto e sentore luppolato, e in bocca spettacolosa, per armonia ed equilibrio...

Pours dark clear amber. White head. Aroma and flavor is very malty. Also nuts, vanila, cola and some alcohol. Aftertaste has some peppery feel because of the strong alcohol.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 12/9 2016. 50 cl bottle from Føtex. Dark red label with considerate warnings like "Superior Strength Ale". It is only an ABV of 8,5 after all. Pours clear reddish amber with slightly off-white head. Settles as very thin layer of foam. Aroma is very sweet. Fermented, sugary plum, blackcurrant and prunes. Like sniffing your mamas port. Actually reminds me a bit of dessert wine. Soft carbonation and semi thick palate. Flavor is immensely sweet with almost no bitterness at all. It does not only smell like your mamas port - it actually also taste like your mothers port.

Nice body with a flavor of fruity orange-like hops mixed well with sweet malts and barley. Well done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Dark amber, firm beige head. Plain sweet toffee aroma, hint of hops, vanilla and warming alcohol. Flavor has sweetish toffee, little berries and banana fruitiness, alcohol shows even more, solid hops in the sugary finish. Medium to full bodied, a bit sticky lush palate. Utterly simple, but still pleasing enough strong ale.

FTA: Finally found it. Had several pints during vacation in Italy. In an Irish pub. So keg option. Have not seen it since. Was more like a bock rather than strong ale. More malty and hoppy. Loved it.
