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’.

ThirstyBird (2617) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a dark brown/orange with nice tan head. Smell is rich, dark fruit, caramel, citrus, sherry. Taste is mix of honey sweetness and hops up front. Along with that I get fruit, caramel, alcohol with a dry finish. A little sticky with medium/full body with nice soft carbonation. A decent beer that that is a touch sweet but otherwise drinks nicely.

Douberd (4914) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2013
500 ml bottle, poured into an english pint glass. ABV 8.5% It’s only 4 o’ clock and I hadn’t noticed the alcohol when I grabbed the bottle. Too bored to go downstairs again and pick up a lighter beer, I decided to open it. Deep orange/red colour on the body, two fingers of lightly beige head, with average retention. No lacing left on the glass. Aroma of fruits. Apricots, grapes. Sugars too. Taste follows the aroma, but very sweet. Lots of sugar, malts, the alcohol notable and then lots of fruity notes. Medium on the body, light carbonation. Overall, good ale, but a bit on the sweet side for me.

Valkyrie001 (3) - - MAY 10, 2013 does not count
I quite like this ale, it is decidedly strong in alcohol, but actually doesn’t taste to full of alcohol, a definite grown up persons bitter, with a definite bitter aftertaste, so more for the serious bitter lover I feel, it reminds me of the smell of proper old boozers in the north, heavy malty hop smell and flavour, I like!
