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’.

Unde (803) - 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.

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2011
British Store, Budapest. Sötétebb barnásvörös, fény felé tartva tükrös és csillogó szín jellemzi, habja pedig szivacsos szerkezetű, bézs színű és viszonylag hamar semmivé foszlik. Illata parfümös, aszalt szilvás, mazsolás és karamellás. Ízében ugyanezek vehetők ki, de lecsengésében a komló enyhe keserűsége mellett a fekete étcsokoládé keserűsége is megjelenik, utóízében is hosszan érezhető az aszalt gyümölcsök és egy enyhén csípős alkoholos íz társaságában. Bizsergető, igazán komoly sör, olajos, nehézkes testtel és keserédes, duplabakokra emlékeztető ízekkel.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 25, 2008
Tasted 24/08/2008, 500ml bottle from Regionals (in front of Lars and the Real Girl). Pours a cherry-hued rose gold with an off-white airy head. Big aroma of toffee, caramel and dark stewed fruit. Floral esters abound, a pleasant alcohol note lingers in the bacground and the spicy herbal hop aroma is lovely. In the mouth those aromas continue, with this being a very aromatic beer. It’s all wrapped in a luscious malt sweetness and oily ’heirloom orange’ hop flavour that reminds me of old school Old 95 - hints of liquorice and cough medicine too (in the most pleasant way). Alcohol is warming and, with the late hop bite, begs another sip. This beer is really growing on me and the movie was excellent too.

thb (797) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a bubbly clear bronze with nice lingering head buildup. Aromas of caramel, candied fruits (especially orange). Taste is big, fruity, and spicy. Balanced between hefty bitterness and sweetness throughout. Real peppery character comes through in the finish. Alcohol is hidden in the background turning up the volume. Lovely.

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!

Panzerfaust (784) - 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.

dnoaksson (781) - , SWEDEN - APR 11, 2009
Gĺr 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.

Nice amber fizzy colour, small white frothy head. Malty aroma, soft carbonation, sweet flavour, minimal bitterness. Dry but refreshing.

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.
