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.

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, ďalfajorĒ, 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.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Pours red-amber with a quick light brown head. Nose is quite sweet and dominated by brown sugar and apples. Flavor is a bit more tame and a little on the generic side for English ales, but is quite drinkable. Alcohol does not factor. Decent stuff.

Listigovers (420) - 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.

Moebbels (419) - 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.

cagou007 (414) - FRANCE - JAN 25, 2014
Nice amber color with a thin white head. Nose is caramel and raisin. Aromas are caramel, pine, roasted malts and alcohol. Nice hoppy bitter and sweet finish. Low carbonation, strong body. Well-balanced, powerful and aromatic strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2012
This brew sports a deep amber colour and a creamy head with a yellow hue. A strong malt base in the aroma, nuts and citrus as well. Taste is bitter form the outset, some sweetness is added. A bitter, and tantalizing finish makes for a really good beer.

500mL bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin head that settles to a ring. Aromas of sweet caramel, floral hops and alcohol. Medium sweetness, mild bitterness and a bit of heat from the alcohol. Medium bodied, thick, soft carbonation and a short finish.
