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.

Vladivostok (227) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Pale tawny in colour with a faint aroma of mainly alcohol but a little malt in there too. Quite sweet and malty but surprisingly gentle in flavour with just enough bitterness in the finish to keep it from being bland. Not the best strong ale Iíve ever tried but still very pleasant on a cold winterís evening.

CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 18, 2008
sweet full, typical. Looks grat, pretty good head too. Strong, but more quickly guzzled & palettable than the Belgian - not quite as good, but a damn good effort.

sound67 (223) - 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 (217) - 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.

LasseVPedersen (214) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle, 50cl. Pours with a light, clear reddish, amber color, large airy and bobble head which falls to a decent thin, but stable one-finger off-white head. Aroma is quite modest malty, dark fruits (raisin), yeast, and clear alcohol. Sweet, malty and sugar-like flavor, hobs and raisin as it becomes slight bitter in a dry, medium finish. Soft carbonation. Alcohol is well-hidden, bit warming, but not that much.

Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle at Fullerís Hock Cellar. Pours a deep amber. Aroma is rich with malt and notes of molasses and dark fruits. Full-flavored and full-bodied with an balance of moderate bitterness and rich malt. Flavor has notes of dark fruit, orange, and toasted grains. Smooth and potent.

MRMedellin (209) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - NOV 14, 2013
When itís poured in glass a dark orange beer with a stable and persistent creamy foam head is seen. The aroma has some floral and citric notes being prevalent some orange and coffee notes. When is tasted a full body thick can be felt with a bitter end.

Lambister (205) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2013
50 cl bottle. An amber beer with light orange head. The aroma is malty sweet with notes of fruit, wood, and spices. The flavor is sweet and strong coming from a great maltblend. Follows aromas well and is great brew in every aspect.
