RATINGS: 675   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.56/5   EST. CALORIES: 255   ABV: 8.5%
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’.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2015
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Dark amber colour, almost no head. Taste has some bitterness, butterscotch, drid fruits. All in all a complicated balance between sweet and sour.

hohops (827) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Appearance- quite clear, dark orangey amber, a small beige bubbly head which disappears quickly. Aroma- orangey, marmalade, raisin hints, malt, tangerine, fruity, a bit of hops. Taste- fairly full bodied, lots of zesty, orange fruit flavours, marzipan hints, sugary marmalade, smooth and delicious. Excellent.

Kirkas punertavanoranssinruskea olut melko runsaalla vaalealla vaahdolla. Vaahto laskeutuu hetken päästä, mutta pinnalle jää edelleen pieni kerros. Samoin pitsiä jää lasin reunoille hieman. Tuoksu miedosti eksoottisen hedelmäinen sekä puumaisen havuinen. Ennen kaikkea tuoksua hallitsee toffeinen karamellisuus. Myös maku on vahvasti toffeisen karamellinen ja maltainen, aavistuksen hedelmäinen sekä puinen. Alkoholi tuntuu jälkipuolella hieman. Humalan aromit ovat aika täydellisesti piilossa. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen, hiilihappoja kevyesti. Hieman yksiulotteinen kokonaisuus.

Cristobal37 (819) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2016
Vanilla caramel marshmallow cherry sweet booze aroma. Heavy big bodied beer. Slight bitterness, but mostly a sticky boozy caramel tasting brew not unlike a German doppelbock. Strong and intense. Some nutty malt, but then sticky syrupy malts after that. A bit much for me, I prefer the ESB, not just since it’s lighter, but it just tastes better to me. MJ’s comment likening this to a cognac is not far off, it’s a sipper, but not my favorite one from that category.

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours brownish copper in colour, with small whitish coloured head. Aroma is malty, taste is slightly bitter malt, fairly evident alcohol notes. Meh.

thb (807) - 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.

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.

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