3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Waitrose (as recommended by Waitrose’s own beer researcher!) Dark amber colour with thin soapy head. Immediate impression of aroma: wet dog. A step back and a second whiff: still smells like a wet dog! My slightly more sophisticatd side says it’s actually roasted vegetables and granary bread. Full bodied and quite sweet. Sweetness is balanced with a rough edge of roasted malts. Nice, long walnut finish. Difficult to judge the strength without a peek at the bottle. In other words, a very tolerable 8.5%. Enjoyable.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear cherry red with a fading white head and an aroma of red fruits (mainly cherries), hops and caramel. The taste is sweet and syruppy, with hints of ripe red fruits, sweet malts, toffee, brown sugar, some alcohol and in the end there’s bitter hoppiness. A really nice beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber colour and white head. Caramelly malts, nuts and toffee in the aroma. Same goes with the taste which has also alcohol in the aftertaste. Tasty but not very easy to drink because of the alcoholic taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on kahden sormen paksuinen ja hieman saippuamainen. Hajussa on vahvasti pähkinää ja karamellia, tyylille uskollisesti. Mukana on myös hieman tummaa hedelmää ja leipäisyyttä. Maku on vahvan pähkinäinen, karamellin tukemana. Mukana on myös hieman puuta ja hedelmää. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja hieman tahmaava. Kokonaisuutena Golden pride on mukava ja maistuva brittiale, mutta ei tämä mielestäni tuo mitään lisäarvoa saman panimon 1845- ja ESB-oluille.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours beautiful golden copper with an off white head that leaves lots of lacing. Nose is very mild but you can detect notes of toffee, brown sugar and a hint of whisky. Flavour is quite similar to the aroma with aded malt, butter, honey and a little woodiness. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy and those are excellent words to describe this beer, as well as outstanding, beautiful and delicious.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber colour, with small light brown head. Rich and intensive sweety aroma of orange, peach, ananas, caramel. Full bodied ale, lightly sweet at the start, but then turns into a bitter aftertaste. You can feel the taste of smoke and cask wood in the mouth. There is also a sign of alcohol in the background. Very nice balanced beer.
