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’.

dnoaksson (700) - , SWEDEN - APR 11, 2009
Går in med en hel armé av smaker och belägrar sinnena. Kraftfull utan att bli mastig, balanserad ända in i den sista nyansen. Choklad kan anas, annars är det de knäckiga tonerna som tar mest plats i smakbilden. Fuller’s levererar i vanlig ordning.

edsspoon (700) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
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.

neongolden (697) - Linköping, 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. Doesn’t 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.

mutz (683) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
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.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle. Alcohol aroma is apparent from the pour, which is red brown with a rapidly diminishing head. Taste is malty with some orange, a slight bitterness and a finishing alcohol burn.

AGAquino (663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 500ml bottle bought in Port of Spain, West Bees supermarket. Pours reddish amber with foamy white head and some, not lasting lace. Aroma of malty dried fruits, slight hoppy bitter and candy. Flavour is thick with traces of sweet malts, toffee, and sugar. Alcohol is noticeable but subtle. Nice lingering aftertaste. Most probably, the best beer available in Trinidad.

zimbo (652) - SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2012
WIll always conside this a Barley Wine as has been said on the Fuller’s website and as defines so by Michael Jackson. Forms a very easy head and has a clean intense sparkling orangy glow similar to Remy Martin VSOP. Constant head, nutty nose not unlike honey roasted cashews. Chewy with a good deepish bitter end. Once swallowed the long aftertyaste suggests a warming strong tasblet/caramel quality which is heavy but subtle. Very fine.
