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’.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2002
more like a doppelbock than an english strong. big, sticky and malty, with a touch of grapefruit, pineapple and spice from the hops lurking in the background. very pretty red colour with nice offwhite head. balanced, yes. interesting, no.

madsberg (10136) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2004
Bottled: Clear amber coloured. Beige dense head. Spices (vanilla), nuts and malt in the aroma. Flavour is sweet and furity and feels rather creamy. Marzipan notes. Alcahol is very dominant in the short as well as the long run. Is quite onedimensional imo. Something about this beer, I dont like. Probably the immense alcahol taste.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2006
Small shiny white creamy head; brown body. Sweetish caramelly oily aroma with notes of burnt almonds. Sweet powerful licorice and caramel taste with alcohol notes. Dry oily caramel finish. A good bit of alcohol heat. Burnt almond taste lingers. Nice, but very unusual for an English beer. Something earthy and slightly cloying in the taste detracts a bit. (0.33l bottle.)

Bottle. Pours red brown with little head. Nice hops, but now over powering. Long on the palate. very pleasant.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 25, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2008 Bottle, pours a strong and bright amber colour with an off-white foamy head. A strong malty aroma, caramal and vinuous, with a whiff of aniseed at the end. A thick vinuous and sweet flavour at first, bready malt through the swallow, and then woody and warming licorice flavours in the finish. Doesn’t drink like its 8.5%, but this is a big beer that you would struggle to drink a lot of (and could do with coming in a smaller bottle IMO).

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Red-copper, noisy white head that settles quickly. Initial sniff is kind of a hot nutty aroma, but after a bit, a nice toasted caramel and plum character develops. Candy sweet flavor, a fair amount of alcohol heat, a moderately clean finish with just a touch of resiny hops. Not particularly complex, but not bad at all.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2009
0.5 l bottle. Amber color with small head. The aroma and flavor is sweet, very fruity, slightly vinous and slightly nutty with orange marmelade, apricot and warming alcohol. Soft oily palate. I like most of the Fullers beers but this one lacks in character and is fairly bland for a barley wine.

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2009
(Bottle) Pours deep orange amber with a white/pale orange head. The aroma is sweet malty and English hoppy with tones of dried fruits/prunes, caramel, syrup, dirt, bread spices, nutmeg, dried herbs, wood, earth, oranges and flower store. The flavour is caramel/syrupy sweet and herbal/spicy bitter. The mouthfeel is malty smooth yet harsh woody/citric and resiny bitter. Syrupy and resiny aftertaste. Medium bodied.
