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.

MoritzF (8444) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2009
(bottle) Hazy, copper-ish amber colour with a beige and dense foamy head. Sweet and strong Bock-like cara-malty aroma with notes of caramel, subtle fruity notes and almost ethereally spices. Sweet flavour with a balancing bitterness, full bodied with a calm carbonation. Robust (cara-)malty, slightly toasted base with caramel/toffee, liquorice, subtle fruity elements and again almost ethereally spicy notes; sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented, delicately toasted finish with an inoffensive, but very present alcoholic burn in the warming sense. A hearty, very flavourful brew. 28.IX.09

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Deep golden-amber pour with a thin head. The aroma is great. Lots of stewed fruit, apple and some pale malt as well. Strong and bracing with a nice warming peppery character. A little bit of orange and a lot of bready character. Slightly sticky mouthfeel and a great balance of malt and hops. Slightly minty with a nice chewy palate. I was in the perfect mood for a beer like this one.

Theydon_Bois (8081) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle at home, from Waitrose Sunningdale, 16/02/13. Pours an almost clear dark golden with a thin white head that vamooshes edgeward allied to evidence of carbonation in the form of bubbles. Nose carries caramel, candle wax, sweet sugars, berry fruits, touch of wood, honey. Taste comprises sweet sugars, rich caramel notes, dark ripe orange, citrus tones, touch of booze. Medium bodied with bite, moderate carbonation, dryish sweet finish. Carbonation flattens and improves over time. Ok but to be honest Iíd rather drink standard pride any day ! Have had this on cask in the past and seem to remember it being better than this ! Need to revisit said version! Came across more so as a barley wine to me in terms of style!

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2002
Golden, like it says on the label. This has a vinuous and spicy aroma. Flavours are of brown sugar, burnt toffee and a surpising hops bites. Powerful and delicous.

500ml bottle picked up at Sainsburys, TCR, London. Deep mahogany body covered by a thin layer, displaying nice laceworks. Dark fruity and nutty aroma. Pungent hop resin in flavour supported by anise and berries. Moderate bitter ending with a noticeable touch of alcohol. Perfect transition from smell to taste. Full bodied (a joy to drink at my hotel room, St Giles 30.04.2008)
