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’.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Coloraçăo âmbar-médio-escuro, com um creme bege razoável, que se foi rapidamente. Amarga. Álcool acentuado, mas que cai bem no conjunto. Notas cítricas, possivelmente de laranja. Lúpulo. O aroma é muito bom, mas năo se desprende facilmente. Álcool no sabor.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2009
Toffee malts and apple on the nose. Lots of caramel with a touch of alcohol and a hint of dried, dark fruit. Never gets too sweet despite that and the hops, although a bit in the background, provide a nice counterweight.

adster (482) - HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2014
Intenzív illata pörkölt maláta és karamell aromáját ontja magából, érezzük rajta, hogy nem egy könnyed darabról van szó. Belekortyolva egy rendkívül telt, egész szájat betöltő ízélményt produkál, melyben az illatában megfigyelhető pörkölt, karamellás jegyeken kívül az erősebb imperial stoutokra jellemző zelleres, fás karakter is érvényesül. Erőteljes, testes és igazán különleges, a végletekig kiforrott darab.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2009
Amber colored with brown hues. A very small white head that dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacings. Plenty of malts in the nose, sweet chocolate and very light hop aromas. Dried fruits, raisins and quite prominent alcohol, almost solvent-like. The taste is predominantly sweet. Bold juicy malt character with plenty of caramel notes. Some fruits and raisins. Brown sugar and sweet chocolate. Nutty flavors (almonds), hints of oak. Gentle floral hops and faint spices. The finish is surprisingly short, minimally bitter and is dominated by warming alcohol. Full bodied, very smooth. Low levels of carbonation. The mouthfeel is actually the highlight of the beer. A good beer, but nothing spectacular. It’s slightly too focused on sweet flavors. The alcohol isn’t really that overly prominent, but still it doesn’t feel totally integrated with the other flavors. I liked it, but I think there are better strong ales out there.
