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: 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.

500 ml bottle. Very nice amber orange colour, decent-sized dense head. Fruits and berries, caramel malts and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. The flavour is caramel-malty, with dark fruits, oranges, spices and a warm bitter finish. Balanced and very enjoyable.

Clear copper orange beer with a creamy head disappearing quite quickly. The aroma is caramelly malty with some alcohol. The flavor is mostly caramelly malty sweet with the alcohol coming through. Thereís a little amount of bitterness. The palate is sticky and pretty full. I would have expected something more refined or complex from this beer, now itís just mostly alcoholic.

Fukito (1018) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle, november 07. Clear copper color with some light orange hues and a thick, creamy, beige head. Nice sherry, plums, cake, fruity aroma. Fruity alcoholic flavor, some fruit cake, toffee notes. Nice and tasty. Quite drinkable for such a strong beer. Medium to full mouthfeel, thick but moreish. A bit rough and with a short aftertaste but enjoyable nonetheless. Rich, warming and enjoyable barley wine.
