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’.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a small white foamy head, that quickly dissapates, over a clear dark amber/ copper body. Aroma/taste of muscat/port, toast, golden syrup/brown sugar. Full bodied.

Listigovers (482) - 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.

Golden clear with big head. Caramel, muscy aroma. Malt, alcohol, candy. Malty hoppines in the aftertaste. Ok beer

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2009
Bottle. Dark amber with white, thick head. Malt taste, hay. and some alcohol. Maybe some dark fruit. A bit heavy.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2009
Amber colored with brown hues. A very small white head that dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacings. Plenty of malts in the nose, sweet chocolate and very light hop aromas. Dried fruits, raisins and quite prominent alcohol, almost solvent-like. The taste is predominantly sweet. Bold juicy malt character with plenty of caramel notes. Some fruits and raisins. Brown sugar and sweet chocolate. Nutty flavors (almonds), hints of oak. Gentle floral hops and faint spices. The finish is surprisingly short, minimally bitter and is dominated by warming alcohol. Full bodied, very smooth. Low levels of carbonation. The mouthfeel is actually the highlight of the beer. A good beer, but nothing spectacular. It’s slightly too focused on sweet flavors. The alcohol isn’t really that overly prominent, but still it doesn’t feel totally integrated with the other flavors. I liked it, but I think there are better strong ales out there. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUN 4, 2008
Aroma doce e alcoólico de lúpulo. No sabor, doce e lupulado, o álcool sobressai um pouco mais do que deveria, desestabilizando levemente o conjunto. Final longo e levemente amargo, alcoólico, doce e tostado.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2009
Quite malty and nutty with hops tastes and bitterness. Very quaffable for such a strong’un.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle: rich sweet malt, fruity, caramel, some vanilla notes, toasted wood, faint nutty notes, faint coffee notes, faint cocca notes, nice orangy cirtic hoppiness which balances the malt, light alcoholic bite, rich and satisfying beer.

Moebbels (460) - 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.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 4, 2007
Appearance: mahogany red colour. Medium head, beige colour and persistent. Aroma: caramels malts. Yeasty with reminiscences of sponge cake; toffee, sugar, “alfajor”, vanilla and wood touches. Sweet-fruitiness of plums and figs. Liquory like cognac and whisky. Flavor: sweet caramel malts; similar touch at aroma, candy, toffee, butterscotch, truffle and vanilla. Some spicy notes, such as cinnamon and clove. Reminiscences of ripe fruits in syrup like plums, figs and blackberries. Warming and liquory, like whisky. Finish with slight oxidize and mineralized touches. Light hoppy, slight dry from toasty malts. Palate: medium body and semi-viscous. Light to medium carbonated. Exquisites liquory, candy and toasty notes. Good balance. Very advisable.
