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.

LasseVPedersen (259) - 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.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - APR 7, 2009
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.

Vladivostok (250) - 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.

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.

Brodies_Best (248) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2011
500ml bottle. Served at room temperature. Pours clear red gold and looks great. Head doesnít last long but thatís ok. Smells awesome. Aroma is of something similar to sherry. Sweet and warm (spices), alcoholic, fruity and malty. Initial taste is smooth, well balanced, alcoholic, warming spices, sweet, fruity. Malty taste comes through with butterscotch or some kind of creamy caramel desert. I would pick this as a desert beer or it could easily compliment a dish which required a bit of smooth fruity sweetness. Good work. Drank this on a cold summerís windy evening in Wellington. Almost 9pm and the sun is still out.

Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2010
A good brew, howerever it has a bitterness I donít appreciate. It is sweet, and has an asprin-like bitterness.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2009
Dark brown color with thick tan head. Sweet fruity aroma of dried apricots, plums and toffee. Heavy flavor with lots of fruit and toffee sweetness. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. A cognac-like feeling to this reminds me of the Thomas Hardy Ale.

karsten (240) - odense, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2002
Sweetish, caramel, vinous, slightly spicy aroma and flavour. Warming alcoholic mouth feel and full bodied. Mildly bitter flavour and finish.
