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.

downender (6120) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2008
This was sampled alongside the 2006 and 2007 vintage ales and the effects of pasteurisation were all too apparent. Deep copper coloured with a slight, off-white head. Very sweet aroma of barley sugar and toffee with a hint of grassy hop. The flavour was of boiled sweets with some redeeming hops and a short bitter finish. Ok, but lacking the complexity of the vintage ales.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2009
Dark brown color with thick tan head. Sweet fruity aroma of dried apricots, plums and toffee. Heavy flavor with lots of fruit and toffee sweetness. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. A cognac-like feeling to this reminds me of the Thomas Hardy Ale.

Gr0ve (2127) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2009
330 ml bottle. Dark copper colour. Crystal clear. Tall fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Subtle rounded malt aroma with a hint of earthy and grassy hops. Feels rich. Mellow bitter flavour initially then more malts. Has a wonderful balance, but lacks in character. Definitely full-bodied, but the hop bitterness take out most of its punch. Some alcohol character. Not bad, but I feel that there could be much more of everything except body in this beer.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2010
Pours a clear copper amber. Off white head that fades to fine lace fast. Fruity hop caramel aroma. Taste is bit sweet caramel brown sugar. Medium carbonation and body. Smooth, pretty well rounded. Finish is clean and sweet, earthy grainy. Lacks bitterness. Okay brew. Nothing special. I doubt if I would drink it again.
