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.

TBone (12988) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2009 Bottled
Dark copper brown. Small brown head. Crisp, menthol nose like in Fullerís Old Winter Ale. Medium-bodied. Coffee, salt, hops in well-balanced taste. Good but not a typical barley wine like it was styled in an advertisement. (6/4/7/4/14 3.5)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 02/2010). Clear amber color, steady creamy beige head. Strong aroma of toffee, nuts, menthol and lemon. Thick, caramelly, alcholic, nutty malty with toffee and dark fruits. Long alcoholic aftertaste. Hard to enjoy so much as drinkability is poor. (6/4/6/3/12 3.1)

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Amber orange colour. Toffee and caramel with warming alcoholic kick. Sweet burnt toffee aroma, hoppiness is there but the tang is almost burnt off by the alcohol. Some appley fruit, but the toffee is great

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, deep amber with a tall, dense head. Fresh, hoppy aroma. Full-bodied yet not as heavy as could be expected from a beer of this strength. Lovely hoppy flavours and a touch of caramel. The alcohol is very prominent, but things are balanced by a solid, bitter finish. A nice, well crafted beer - although the alcohol makes it a bit hard to finish. 310701

cab (866) - DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
Bottle.50cl. Nice english bitter, with a small hint of diacityl and that gives the beer a good sweetness to the bitter notes of the beer.

FatPhil (9591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 13, 2007
RIch ruddy brown, thin head. Strong apple aroma, says strong ale. Tastes very bitter and richly roasted - almost burnt. Finish is long and woody. A little alcoholic alas.

faroeviking (10288) - 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.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Pours a medium to light amber with short lasting white head. Aromas of fruit, malt, and alcohol. Very distinct flavour with hops, fruit, caramel, and roasted barley. Very warming palate, though the alcohol is not as well balanced as I hoped. Overall a quality barley wine.
