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: ’ 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.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.

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! Fuller’s, you’ve done it again!

Brodies_Best (240) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2011
500ml bottle. Served at room temperature. Pours clear red gold and looks great. Head doesn’t last long but that’s 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 summer’s windy evening in Wellington. Almost 9pm and the sun is still out.

kapusil (592) - HUNGARY - NOV 6, 2012
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. It’s 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 I’m remarkably fond of cognac. There’s 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.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Ruby at the top, light amber at the bottom; still, with no head at all; aroma of marmalade / Christmas cake; lots of stewed orangey fruit which was fairly muted at first, but became progressively pronounced and toothsome as the drink went on; reminded me of Bush Ambree in that sense; the alcohol isn’t hidden - this is a warming brew; I had this on cask once at The Whale in Buckingham - it was pretty mind blowing in 1996 and is still excellent bottled in 2013.

Rodriguez (236) - Quito, ECUADOR - APR 21, 2014
Exactly like a Cognac but a beer. Amber in color, good carbonation, very malty but dry, almost no presence of hops, but balanced. Some orange. bread. Loved the balance of this beer.

ambrosemac (7) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014 does not count
Lovely strong ale with enough character and flavour to make the alcohol strength indiscernible. This is a solid beer, a ’Gate-Keeper’ for the ’Strong Ale’ category..

Nagyon tetszetős mély és tiszta rubin szín. Erős almás malátás illat és persze ott tolakodik a masszív alkohol bukéja a sarkában. Testes édes ami nekem nem szokott annyira passzolni de kíséri egy kellemes nem túl harsány komlósság. A vége édes, ragdós és sűrű. Finom. Milyen lehet frissen csapról? Hmmm...

Sdaniel90 (356) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear copper colour with a modest head that fades quickly. Aroma is of sweet malts and dry fruits, strong and intense. Taste is heavy and complex, very drinkable with lots of character. Great, strong finish. One of Fuller’s best.
