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’.

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!

rozsoma (785) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - DEC 30, 2011
Nice amber fizzy colour, small white frothy head. Malty aroma, soft carbonation, sweet flavour, minimal bitterness. Dry but refreshing.

Panzerfaust (785) - 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.

thellgren (784) - 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.

mice (781) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
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.

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.

hohops (779) - 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.

Jado (766) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2015
From pint bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper with a thin off-white head and light carbonation. Aromas of raisins, caramel, malt and flowers. Taste starts off with sweet caramel and stewed apple before an orange zest and pepper bitterness washes in. Finishes with raisins and cinnamon. Very decent beer.
