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.

This one had a lot of shit going on, another one that just didnít make sense to my tongue. Skip this.

Listigovers (288) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
This beer was really just so moderate in every regard that it is hard to find words to properly describe it. Medium bodied, moderate malty aroma, moderate bitterness, medium length aftertaste, mildly alcoholic flavour, fairly smooth. It was well made, no doubt, but without strong character.

Bottled. Pours copper with a small white head. Smells malty and parfume. Tastes alcohol and sweet malty with a similar finish.

I agree with person who said it was too strong for its own good, i also sample this at the brewery and wasnít totally impressed, lacked a bit of balance or something.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2004
UPDATED: APR 1, 2006 Mar 06 Bottle. My comment would be much the same as before but with a lower score. Obviously what I needed after drinking too much was an overly strong pint of beer. 3.0
Apr 04 Bottle. Sweet and malty with big alcohol presence. A rather hazy end to a long evening of drinking. 3.7

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Amber to copper body, almost no head. Malty nose with a weird aroma. Good malty flavor with some bitterness to back it up. Not to keen about this beer!

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2004
Pours amber with a small off white head. Alcohol dominates aroma even when warmed. Theres also some malty notes there too but mainly alcohol. Sweet start with a slightly fruity mid and dry finish. Aftertaste of alcohol and light spice. Not what Iíd hoped for.

Gethinbeer (2070) - Musky, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 28, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of fruit and honey, melting brown sugar. Fantastic reddish glow with an off white crisp head. Strong alcohol flavour mixed in with nuts. A little plastic but smooth will a slight tang.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAY 20, 2008
Corpo non ingombrante ma non acquoso, aroma lieve e dolce, sapore molto dolce e maltato con retrogusto miele. Alla spina al ReOtan a Napoli.

jcwattsrugger (11001) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2009
500ml bottleĖpours a rich off white head and amber color. Aroma is wood/grain, some citrus, alcohol. Taste is sweet medium malt-caramel, macademia, then bitter, boozy/alcohol set in. this could improve with aging. Syrupy mouth feel. Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for bring this back from his trip across the pond.
