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’.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2012
Draught: Medium white head which disappears slowly on top of an almost clear amber colored beer. Smell malts, sweat, dust, iron, strange smell but not bad. Taste malts, vanilla, creamy banana, creamy barley malts, light bitter, herbs and a hint of honey. Aftertaste is medium bitter, there’s barleys and wheat and there is some malty herbs all creamy packed Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a thicker creamy light oily texture Decent beer but a bit dull...

Erasmus_ro (1661) - Alabama, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours an auburn mahogany with a small, brownish head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, light resin and floweriness. Taste is toffee, light resin, fruity, some marmalade. Palate is a bit sticky, fairly full. A bit too simple for these alcohol levels.

fantti (762) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (11415) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle at home, from Waitrose Sunningdale, 16/02/13. Pours an almost clear dark golden with a thin white head that vamooshes edgeward allied to evidence of carbonation in the form of bubbles. Nose carries caramel, candle wax, sweet sugars, berry fruits, touch of wood, honey. Taste comprises sweet sugars, rich caramel notes, dark ripe orange, citrus tones, touch of booze. Medium bodied with bite, moderate carbonation, dryish sweet finish. Carbonation flattens and improves over time. Ok but to be honest I’d rather drink standard pride any day ! Have had this on cask in the past and seem to remember it being better than this ! Need to revisit said version! Came across more so as a barley wine to me in terms of style!

laiti (6495) - 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.

The_Osprey (2755) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - 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.
