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.

japi (112) - KisvŠrda, HUNGARY - JAN 27, 2012
A deep amber coloured beer with a thin, beige head. There are caramel, alcohol and honey in the aroma. The taste is sweet and malty with notes of orange and bread. The texture is oily, the finish is long and bitter-sweet. Itís a good one! It will be one of my favourite beers!

Scottrf (105) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
Reddy amber, small tan head. Clear, flat. Beautiful fruity/caramel malty aroma. Intense peppery bitterness throughout, which slightly masks some fruity flavours. Medium palate, enough carbonation. Brilliantly complex. Very good, a little too far towards the hopiness for my liking but quite well balanced. One of my favourites.

BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 18 Dec 09, drank on a cold semi-sunny Sunday afternoon in Nov 09. Poured into a batemanís branded UK pint sleeve. Looked good, a creamy coloured foaming head sat on top of a dark mahogany, clear body. Toasted malts and rich molasses hit my nose, toffee and treacle but without a sweetness, more a prosperous, well-healed, confident air about it. In short, it smells like a rich persons tipple. That richness carries on into the flavours, very oak wood rather than plywood, delicious, sumptuous and very moorish. I almost forgot it is 8.5%ABV, no wonder it tasted so full, warming and luxurious. There are few beers in the world better than a well made English Strong Ale and this is up there with the best, I take my hat off to Fullerís, this is one well crafted beer and well worth the extra couple of pence I paid for it.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 500 ml bottle poured into a Pint glass Appearance....... amber/copper beer with head colour white of almost 2 fingers Aroma...............malt, alcohol, caramel, hops. Fresh and strong smell with a touch of malty aroma Taste........ fenolic with a sweet malty touch, bitterness appears soon lasting all the time, with a dry finish Mouthfeel........... medium/full body and medium/soft carbonation Overall............ a very nice strong ale, bitterness is present but in a perfect combination with malt and alcohol. One of my favourites, definitely a great English ale in his section (strongs ales) .

Ingevara (816) - SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 Tonnes of aroma. A dark redish brown nectar of pure gold and flavors in a next to perfect mix. It has strength, roundness, maltyness, freshness and just about everything one could wish of a really great beer.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2005
Rich, toasty, nutty nose. Deep amber colour with a creamy head. Stunning flavour with - as the description says - oranges, and sweet malt. Finish initially smooth and gradually sharpens into a pleasing, slightly tangy lingering, bitter finish. A winner, and my new favourite from fullers.

dynamiteninja (1587) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle. Aroma is lots of deep rich hops and lots of malt make this a very well balanced beer. Very fruity, especially orange. Heavenly. Pours a rich clear deep amber with a thick off-white head that dissipates. Medium bitterness, a full bodied brew. Undertones of sweetness balance this out. Rather glorious on the palate. Sweet and rich! Fullerís, youíve done it again!
