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’.

fantti (731) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on kahden sormen paksuinen ja hieman saippuamainen. Hajussa on vahvasti pähkinää ja karamellia, tyylille uskollisesti. Mukana on myös hieman tummaa hedelmää ja leipäisyyttä. Maku on vahvan pähkinäinen, karamellin tukemana. Mukana on myös hieman puuta ja hedelmää. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja hieman tahmaava. Kokonaisuutena Golden pride on mukava ja maistuva brittiale, mutta ei tämä mielestäni tuo mitään lisäarvoa saman panimon 1845- ja ESB-oluille.

laiti (5953) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Pappila. Rated on 10.01.2009
Aroma has English hops, some toffee, hay and caramel. Flavour is sweetish with English hops, nettles, hay, some toffee, caramel and distant floral notes. Feels a bit messy, not my kind of beer.

Osprey87 (2022) - WALES - SEP 13, 2013
500ml bottle BB March 2014. Pours a clear amber orange/brown. Initial head dies down after a matter of seconds. Smell is classic ’old ale’, yeasty with some pungent caramel. Body is medium and slightly foamy. Taste has more caramel, spice, raisin. Quite sweet. Slightly drying finish. Not quite to my taste, but it seems a well made beer. A sipper.

lord_zer0 (38) - Cáceres, SPAIN - JAN 16, 2014
Botella 33cl en CerveZeres. Cerveza de estilo inglés de alta graduación. Un poco dulzona, en el aroma y el sabor se pueden apreciar toques de caramelo. Cuerpo muy ligero y espuma poco persistente. Muy muy rica.

superhaffy (22) - NORWAY - MAY 17, 2014
Klar rødlig veske nesten uten skum. Aroma av karamell, treverk og litt urter samt alkohol. I smaken er det mye sødme, karamell og søte bakevarer. God munnfølelse men litt for mye alkohol, flott bitterhet i avsluttningen. En god koseøl på kalde kvelder, slik hver kveld er i London.

500ml bottle. Fantastic, clear, reddish, dark copper colour with small, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Fruity, malty aroma, hints of forest fruits, berries, a touch of toffee. Taste is dry and malty, subtle malt sweetness, hints of toffee, nuts, bitter hoppy counterbalance.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 17, 2002
Deep golden-orange colour, pours with little head. Alcohol and butterscotch aroma and a flavour to match. Overall this beer was not incredibly complex and was fairly uninteresting. There are better strong ales on which to spend your money.
