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’.

Sammy (11075) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2011
Much different than the cask version i had 2 years ago. It had an excellent head and lacing on a light golden body. Caramal pronounced but so is the bitterness in the finish, toasting. Lots of flavour, an imperial British!Above average mouthfeel.

Rune (11054) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2008
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)

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with a short lasting light brownish head leaving some lacing. Toasty malty, apple and bit spiced hoppy aroma with caramel. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a surprisingly good toasty maltiness and caramel, nice mild but still profound spiciness, bitter hops, alcohol and some dark fruits. Toasty and spiced, dry bitter finish. Like a thin version of a good Belgian spiced ale.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Dark amber and a creamy, nice head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and dark fruits. The flavour is rich, full, smooth, malty, fruity and full with a nice bitterness, that develops further in the finish. A beer that is worthy of it’s name.

pivnizub (10098) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle: Reddish amber coloured, mid-sized, quite firm off-white head, visible carbonation; rich fruity (dryed fruit) aroma, a tinge of molasses, a touch of port and caramel; full bodied, rich sweet flavour; long lasting, warming bitter-fruity finish, becoming dry towards the end with a developing aromatic-hoppy aftertaste; well hidden alcohol. A very rich, complex brew, quite easy quaffable, from a first-class brewery !
