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’.

madsberg (10805) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2004
Bottled: Clear amber coloured. Beige dense head. Spices (vanilla), nuts and malt in the aroma. Flavour is sweet and furity and feels rather creamy. Marzipan notes. Alcahol is very dominant in the short as well as the long run. Is quite onedimensional imo. Something about this beer, I dont like. Probably the immense alcahol taste.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with a short lasting light brownish head leaving some lacing. Toasty malty, apple and bit spiced hoppy aroma with caramel. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a surprisingly good toasty maltiness and caramel, nice mild but still profound spiciness, bitter hops, alcohol and some dark fruits. Toasty and spiced, dry bitter finish. Like a thin version of a good Belgian spiced ale.
