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.

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

Skinnyviking (8597) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Clear dark brown body. Dry and burned barley malt aroma. Pleasant smooth barley malt flavor with a suitable amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Short aftertaste.

[2652-20091211] Cask. Sweet heavy grainy malt aroma. Clear, dark amber red body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sweet thick syrupy grainy malt flavour. Medium body is bitter and thick. Not bad, fairly golden and pridey.

Hansen (8292) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2003
Fine appearance, amber and a big lacing head. Lots of sweetness in the aroma, and in the start of the flavor. The flavor finish with a bitterness. Overall a beer that really has aroma and flavor to the full.

mR_fr0g (8283) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle shared with Sarah at home picked up from Sainsbury ís/ Aroma is raisin and sweet malts with some English yeast esters. Flavour is composed of sweet dark unrefined sugars, melanoidin sugars, rounded nutty amber malts. Sweet dark dried fruits and raisin. Palate is pretty sweet and full bodied, moderate carbonation. Another London tick! Pretty good malt forward beer, good English yeast character.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, 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.

Halt liter bottle pour courtesy of Paul Unwin, thanks Paul!! It pours out clear brilliant deep copper with ruby hues and tan head. The aroma is rich yummy sweet malts, earthy hops, some pine hops and more earthy goodness at the end of the draw. The taste is right up my alley with a smooth modest level of pine hops mixing with sticky firm malt sweetened earthiness and some floral hops thinly ringed around the edges. This is goooood stuff.

laiti (7910) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Pappila. Rated on 10.01.2009
Aroma has English hops, some toffee, hay and caramel. Flavour is sweetish with English hops, nettles, hay, some toffee, caramel and distant floral notes. Feels a bit messy, not my kind of beer.

9/IV/13 - 500ml bottle from Mitra van Bergen (Eindhoven, NL) @ home - BB: 7/II/14 (2013-318)

Clear deep orange to amber beer, big fizzy light beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, malty, sugar, red fruits syrup, bubble gum, honey. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malty start, red fruit jam, sugary, some citrus, bitter hops, strawberry jam. Aftertaste: caramel, sweet malts, honey, red fruit jam, little bitter, some toast. I liked this beer a lot, my fellow tasting buddies did not.
