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.

Golden, like it says on the label. This has a vinuous and spicy aroma. Flavours are of brown sugar, burnt toffee and a surpising hops bites. Powerful and delicous.

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.

500ml brown bottle. Poured a clear ruby amber with gold frothy head. Rich spice roast raisins aroma.Spicy fruit flavour, lovely malt hop alcohol balance. Full bodied oily mouthfeel. Long finish. Tastes like a de-tuned Vintage Ale.

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.

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!

Brodies_Best (263) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2011
500ml bottle. Served at room temperature. Pours clear red gold and looks great. Head doesnít last long but thatís ok. Smells awesome. Aroma is of something similar to sherry. Sweet and warm (spices), alcoholic, fruity and malty. Initial taste is smooth, well balanced, alcoholic, warming spices, sweet, fruity. Malty taste comes through with butterscotch or some kind of creamy caramel desert. I would pick this as a desert beer or it could easily compliment a dish which required a bit of smooth fruity sweetness. Good work. Drank this on a cold summerís windy evening in Wellington. Almost 9pm and the sun is still out.

0.33l bottle. Deep orange body, nice beige head. Caramelly aroma with lots of fruityness and a minimal roastyness. Lots of caramel, some chocolate, reisin and bread with lots of fruity hoppyness in the flavor. Big body. Itís like a double IPA. Awesome beer!

Oh Bugger. I just realised the alcohol content and I have jobs to do this afternoon. Ah well, they can wait. Lustrous amber in colour with a skim of white head. I would proceed with a deScription, but I bow to the higher power of the brewer and accept unequivocally their deScription. I also endorse the finidings of the late Michael Jackson, as Iím remarkably fond of cognac. Thereís many similarities of flavour evident and almost demands a slice of Roquefort. If this beer was served at my wake, I would do my best to try and join in. Until then, a beer I shall make a bee-line for more often.
