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 (8726) - 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

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.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 9, 2010
Bottle. Clear reddish-copper color with a medium, quickly-diminishing, white head. Nice aroma with biscuity malt, toffee, caramel, fruity notes and some hops. Flavor starts with some sweet chewy maltiness and caramel, and continues with a pleasant, somewhat spicy, hop bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Pretty good.

DuffMan (7999) - 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!

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 Fitting toast to Beckhamís anticlimactic 100th cap in Paris. Bronze ringed with white. Some enticing stemmy green orange/juniper hop notes on the nose, sweetly citrussy with plenty of caramelised malt back-up a bit like a mellow IPA. Flavour marred by too much coarse antiseptic alcohol, whiskeyish booze, and (agian) a dead lingering bitterness presumably the by-product of filtering/pasteurisation. Completely unaromatic. If thatís a word. Vaguely pleasant toffeeish notes, but smothered with sickly, buttery almond (ethanol). A very fine line indeed between this and Bavaria Red/RIP/ Exterminator-type malt liquors served in a brown paper bag. Dead barley wine ruined by pasteurisation and too much booze. I couldnít finish it.

Bottle @ home- Pours dark golden with a white head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, some fruit, bubblegum, light smoke. Taste is roasted malt, caramel, berries, some alchohol. Full body, soft carbonation. 170110
