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’.

Marstonlad (529) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2012
UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 Pours reddish amber with a very little head. Aroma features most sweetish dark fruitiness with dried fruity notes, especially raisin. Also berries and maltier elements, such as caramel, bread and toffee, are around. Taste is light sweet, initially very fruity, later maltier. The finish is moderately hoppy, dryish and light bitter - very British. The palate is medium to full bodied, mouthfeel slick and smooth. Alcohol is hidden well. Could offer more in terms of hoppy notes, but still a nice, well balanced winter warmer.

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2010
Tasted at Den Tatoverede Enke in DK. Was paired excellently with their Sheppard’s pie. Not my favourite Fuller’s beer, but tasty. Pours an amber colour with white head. Taste is quite sweet, with caramel malty body, notes of apricot, cloves and grassy bitter finish.

Clean dark amber color, small beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, dried fruits, nuts, honey, spicy hops. Sweet and mildly bitter taste with hoppy finish and sweet malty aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Quite good English strong ale.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2008 Coloração 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 não 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.
