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.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - 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.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, 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

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2009
bottle, Waitrose Sidmouth 2008. Dark brown colour with a small head. Fruity nose. Very smooth, deeply malty with raisins, plums and shy hints of citrus fruit. Very malty indeed with a well-rounded malty finish. Delicious.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2004
Bottled. Vinuous smell with some berry fruit thrown in. Dark brown colour with little head or lacing. The mouthfeel is very full with a buttery smoothness, blackberries, caramel and a wine like flavour. This beer is very good but belies its strength in that it's not a particularly warming beer

DuffMan (8316) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a beautiful deep rusty orange with a thick densely packed vanilla coloured head that leaves early delicate lace. Rich caramel aroma, slightly earthy, with hints of spicy fruit. Very malty palate, toast and toffee with quince and cherry fruit. Woody and spicy notes, mild bitterness. Full-bodied, chewy, with a pleasantly warming finish. Like a baby barley wine! Delicious!

KyotoLefty (8121) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 11, 2008
Big aroma of oranges, caramel, molasses, alcohol, dried fruits, and hops. Deep orange and amber color with a minimal but sturdy head. Sweet, caramel malts, with dried fruits, orange, cherry, a touch of tobacco, alcohol and just enough hops to keep it from cloying. Nice residual sugars, tasting like molasses. Nice balance, sweet but not overly so. Great winter warmer.
