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’.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 4, 2012
0,33l bottle from British Store, Budapest. Clear, dark amber color with non-durable, white head. Honey and alcohol aroma with fruits and herbs. Intensive malty aroma with honey. Sweetness, much alcohol, barley, spices and herbs, a little resin. Heavy sweet taste. Medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. Grainy, sweet finish with a light herbal flavour. This beer is like a barley wine. Intensive alcohol and grain feeling.

Moebbels (308) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Clear dark amber body with a quickly disappearing head. Nose has some raisin, floral malt and caramel notes. Taste is bittesweet with a raisiny and fruity flavor and a softly bitter finish. Carbonation is soft but rich with lots of bubbles. Palate is rich and creamy. The alcohol is extremely well hidden, this does not even warm you up like other BW:s. Well made but a little one-dimensional.

fredthecat (297) - CANADA - DEC 20, 2011
medium amber with a thin but lasting head. smell is a bit of alcohol, a lot of grain. i taste a full base grain maltiness, medium caramel taste but dry, nice fruity hops ranging from orange to melon. feels carefully put together and complex. thick and slick body. would definitely get it again

seritomi (294) - HUNGARY - MAR 15, 2012
Nagyon tetszetős mély és tiszta rubin szín. Erős almás malátás illat és persze ott tolakodik a masszív alkohol bukéja a sarkában. Testes édes ami nekem nem szokott annyira passzolni de kíséri egy kellemes nem túl harsány komlósság. A vége édes, ragdós és sűrű. Finom. Milyen lehet frissen csapról? Hmmm...

Listigovers (293) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
This beer was really just so moderate in every regard that it is hard to find words to properly describe it. Medium bodied, moderate malty aroma, moderate bitterness, medium length aftertaste, mildly alcoholic flavour, fairly smooth. It was well made, no doubt, but without strong character.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours amber/red with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, hops and subtle hints of fruit. Flavour is malt, subtle hops and fruit. Pretty good.

Melkart (285) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - OCT 11, 2013
Strong and balanced. I could taste some bread. The carbonation is soft and the finish is abrupt and dry.

hohops (278) - 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.
