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.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2005 Original Rating: My least favourite Fullerís beer. Far too strong, and really sweet. (1.2/5) Rerating: Years on, I have now developed a taste for bigger beers. Prickly on the tongue, some fruit and plenty of malt. Itís doesnít seem great, but itís not as bad as I once thought. Rerating: Tried it again, itís not great and it has a certain boiled taste, but itís nice and fruity and easy to drink. Tasty.

2012-11-08, draught at Locus Publicus, Rotterdam, 7-5-6-3-13=34
Clean amber color, creamy head. Some caramel aroma and flavor; very moderate sweetness; ordinary bitterness, a bit of nutty touch. Not as rich as the bottle I remembered.

2011-08-22, bottle, 7-5-7-3-13=35
Beautiful, bright dark amber color, with generous creamy head. The aroma is malty but also simple, with nuts and tones of vegetables. Good body strength, with moderate sweetness; malt and caramel flavor, decent, unfortunately followed by some vegetables and alcohol; it ends with correct bitterness and a hint of nuts, also with alcohol warmth.
Too much.

2003-10-22, bottle, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Amber color; poor head. Nice malt aroma, strong; wood, cellar. Warming, malty, loads of caramel; very good structure. Powerful. Of course not as much complex as the Vintage Ale, but I liked itÖ

RichardGretton (4611) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2004
Dark ale with a fizzy fruity aroma and a strong vineous flavour. Harsh abit on the palate due to hints of fizz, but overall reasonable.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - SEP 3, 2004
(on bottle)Didenīt like the harsh and sweet taste at first, but it soon turned into a perfect winterwarmer. Very sweet sent of fermentet strawberries and a depp, golden brown color. soft, allmost tasteless at first, but then the finish hits you and the drink changes totally. Ver full malty mouth after a long wait of 20 seconds and a real kick of alcohol, makes the tones of wood and cognag really come to the surface. Meditationbeer indeed.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Bottle. Chestnut colour with a small head. Aroma of burnt sugar, citrus and dried fruit. Sweet, rich flavour of fruit and malt. Full bodied mouthfeel. A good strong ale, worth savouring.

tlind2 (1551) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 500 ml bottle @ Kaunis Kampela, Helsinki. Amber color, off-white head. Floral aroma with plenty of sweetness. The flavor is sweet malts with licorice, wood and a touch of alcohol. Full body, medium carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel. Not bad, but I prefer their 1845 ale, which is similar in many aspects. Rerate 31.12.2008: Noticed some grapefruit and more pine, very American flavors to find in an English ale. Pretty good though.

Bottle. Dark amber colour with a small white head. Caramel and malt in the aroma. Flavour is very sweet and malty with some bitterness, caramel and toffee. Aftertaste is sweet, medium to full-bodied.
