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’.

Mad_Ferret (992) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark amber/copper with a dense yellowed head that doesn’t lace that much. Big sweet aroma with syrupy bready and marmalade fruity apricot and orange notes. Some salty peppery leather and pointy hops. Taste is also quite sweet, but just enough to stay elegant. Decently complex with lots of marmalade fruit, bread, caramel, spice, some leather and hops. Big body with soft low carbonation, but still very drinkable. A very nice beer!

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2006
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.

fantti (936) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
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.
