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’.

Bottle 50 CL. Pours copper with white small lacing head, berries. Notes of caramel, herbs, alcohol warmth. Sweet rounded caramel taste. Interesting ale.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle from Csak a jó sör. Poured ruby-red, with a tan, creamy lacing foam. Honey, caramel, plum, raisins, yeast, and perhaps some herbs in the nose. There is a slight citrusy hint lurking somewhere in there, but the (delicious) hops kind of overpower it. Medium dense, oily, medium carbonated. Alcohol well hidden, with a sweet, roasty aftertaste that lasts. Pretty good!

dnoaksson (781) - , 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.

Deep amber reddish color, with little head. Aroma of caramel,oak, malts, friuts fruits. Taste is the same with no hidden alcohol note. Medium body, average carbonation. Interesting beer but no superlative.

Unde (763) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Bronze coloured ale with small head. Caramel malts, some bitter cherry and some toffee sweetness. Caramel, toffee, some ripe fruits and mainly sweet flavors. Some bitterness at the end. Rich texture and enjoyable Strong Ale.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Love this stuff. Pours a clear orange with a fizzy head. The aroma is sweet, toffee, candied orange, booze, biscuit. The flavour is also sweet, with toffee and candied orange flavours up front, booze, pepper and a light touch of hops in the finish. Syrupy mouth feel. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Panzerfaust (751) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAY 18, 2012
500 ml bottle from Jumbo Alto Las Condes. Pours a hazy dark amber/bronze color with a medium grayish-white head that laces well. Strong, malty-fruity aroma, complex with notes of molasses, peaches, strawberries, Amaretto cream, cranberries, hay, buttery biscuit and lots of phenols. Big, overpowering and malty. Intensely sweet, syrupy but well-made. Big flavors of molasses, palm syrup, overripe peaches and liquor. Boozy and heavy. When it warms, the sweetness becomes overwhelming. The hops are barely noticeable. Huge body, thick in the mouth. Finish is long and leaves a warm and boozy sensation in the mouth. As much a Barley Wine as an English Strong Ale. Enjoyable yet a little too sweet.

zenkis (747) - Ogre, LATVIA - AUG 17, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 I tasted this a few months after "Fullers Past Masters XX Strong Ale" - still the same joy. I’m beginning to feel that English strong ales or strong ales as a whole is worth attention, my attention, it this case after IPAs. Very fruity, sweet, dense (if dense goes under taste tab :) )taste, very aromatic with an exact amount of bitterness. Really enjoyed it. As a bonus comes those rocket earth-sky launching 8.5% degrees :)

0.5L bottle Spirits&Wine, Spice, Riga Beautiful and dangerously delicious brew. A bit more caramel flavor and body/alco - and it would be a barleywine. Gentle hopping level with enought malt sweetness to allow yeast produced fruity esters to shine. Pleasant, sweet, light caramel, candy like aroma with semisweet taste pattern. No long lasting aftertaste, a bit alcohol comes out at the end but mild sweetness and gentle, velvety texture is not suposed to be sipping brew, drinkability level- medium to high. Clear, more ambery than coppery in color, small, beige frothy top. Liked.

Sdaniel90 (744) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear copper colour with a modest head that fades quickly. Aroma is of sweet malts and dry fruits, strong and intense. Taste is heavy and complex, very drinkable with lots of character. Great, strong finish. One of Fuller’s best.
