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: í 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.í Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: íthe Cognac of beersí.

Sdaniel90 (572) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear copper colour with a modest head that fades quickly. Aroma is of sweet malts and dry fruits, strong and intense. Taste is heavy and complex, very drinkable with lots of character. Great, strong finish. One of Fullerís best.

agent_persik (571) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 14, 2015
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.

sound67 (570) - Offenbach, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2009
50cl bottle, as shown. Pours a beautiful mahogany with a medium-sized, creamy off-white head with decent retention and plenty of lacing. Aroma is of dried fruit: raisins, some orange peel, plus caramel. Medium carbonation and a thick, creamy and oily mouth feel that, at 8.5 % abv, should surprise no one. A full-bodied strong ale, as Iíve come to expect from Fullerís. Taste is of sweet roasted malt, toffee, stewed dark berries, with a lot of herbal spices adding to the complexity of this brew - again with a freshening note of orange peel. Malty, full, medium dry finish and gripping, slightly boozy after taste. Very similar to the much more expensive "Vintage Ale", which seems logical if that beer is indeed based on Golden Pride (same abv, to begin with). Unlike the "Vintage" variety, itís pasteurized. As with all the strong ales and premium esbs from Fullerís, this one is beautifully balanced, with the strong alcohol well integrated into the intricate fabric of aromas. Sweetness and malty bitterness complement each other brilliantly, If youíre searching for the perfect "fireside brew", look no further.

hohops (570) - 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.
