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: 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.

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.

Aroma is caramel malts, honey some molasses and dark fruits. Taste is big body malts, sugar, dried fruits, salt and some licorish. Aftertaste is some bitterness which is perfectly balanced making ths a nice brittish strong ale.

sinkas (273) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle,IBS, Perth amazingly rich treacle, toffee and malt in the nose, Poured a slightly hazy coppery red, palate is dominated by flavour hops, which detracted form the thick sweetness a little, dare I say I would have preferred this if it had a little less hops..

50 cl. bottle. Served in stemmed ale glass. Reddish amber color. Malty, nicely vinous, and pleasantly full and complex. The alcohol is well hidden. Nicely balanced. Smooth, soothing, and warming finish.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2008
Lovely hoppy aroma, sweetness there too. Strenght of this brew is apparent in the taste but the malt backs the old man alcohol down and the bitter end high fives you like a champ. Almost too easy to drink and woo then you are drunk. But who is complaining, this is good stuff.

Bottle. Copper colour, thin head. Bready, malty aroma with some caramel. Sweet, full, syrupy mouthfeel. More caramel in the flavour along with a lingering bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. Nice.

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 28, 2010
50cl bottle: Reddish brown colour with a vanishing head. Very malty aroma with hints of oxidation, yeast and herbal and tobacco-like hoppiness. The mouthfeel is really full, in the flavour, thereís a big cookie-and-caramel-type sweetness, which is okay but bordering on becoming cloying - and thatís an adjective I donít use inflationary. I mean, if you canít stand sweetness in a beer, you should probably avoid this. I thought it was actually a pretty decent sipper. There was a nice "british" hoppiness and slight roastiness to counteract a little.
