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’.

corkyrory66 (861) - BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
Bière qualifiée par son brasseur de « superior strength ale » … j’aime ça ! Elle est faite avec du pale ale et cristal malts, notamment avec du Golden Promise, et en plus 4 houblons pour parfaire le goût : Northdown, Challenger, Goldings et Target. Elle titre à 8,5 % abv. Couleur roux foncé, acajou. Clarté nette. Bulle fines en colonnes, très nombreuses. Mousse beige bien constituée, qui devient un nappage fin mais joli. Arômes de malt grillé, cognac, pointe de porto, cassonade. 1ère bouche douce, soyeuse, mais avec un fort caractère : malt grillé, épices fortes, pointe de noix et noisette. Arrière-bouche au malt cara, avec beaucoup d’herbes des bois. 2ème très liquoreuse, avec beaucoup d’épices. Arrière-bouche longue, sans concession. 3ème beaucoup mieux intégrée, mais avec du caractère. Arrière-bouche bien marquée malt/houblon, avec une pointe de fumée. La longueur retrouve le cognac, pointe de genièvre, pain d’épices, cookie. La progression est exceptionnelle dans l’équilibre, la texture, avec des nuances superbes. Les jambes sont parfaitement lisses. L’alcool est bien dosé, bien progressif. Il soutient manifestement cette bière. La finale ne déçoit pas, en apportant un résumé de cette bière. CONCLUSION : grand brassin de chez Fuller’s, qui sent la Tamise, et qui plus est le cognac, ce qui n’est pas pour nous déplaire… Les bouches d’entrée sont un peu trop marquées du sceau du caractère pour permettre des cotes de très haut vol, mais on est dans la très belle classe.

Deep amber/red color, with a nice medium head. Smell is caramel malts, liquor, ripe fruits. Taste shows even better the caramel malts, maybe nuts, sweet but well balanced. Oily texture, low carbonation. Some alcohol warmth in the end, but very drinkable. Great beer!

bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Fruity, malty aroma. Dried fruit. Purple fruit. Deep coppery amber color. Head disipated quickly. Flavor is alcohol, malt, American port, and fruit. Hops persist to the finish, but then the malt remains strong. It’s really nice. It’s confusing. It suddenly occurs to me that there is a sort of roughness, similar to Fullers 1845. Maybe this is 1845 on steroids. Hope it gets shipped to the states. And why is this denominated "Golden"?

mkel07 (4256) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2010
500ml bottle. Dark copper colour with an even layer of dense tan foam. Strong port like aromas burst from the bottle as it is poured. Currants, spiced fruit and plum pudding come to mind. Strong warming flavours that hit all parts of the mouth. Rich and full bodied. Perfect for sipping by an open fire.

futre7 (174) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 12, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Very enjoyable. Too strong to session but a very good ale to sip. Aroma is dark fruit , oranges, and malt. Taste is again oranges . I also get brown bread , nuts and malt. Great finish also. It tops my ratebeer account for a reason. it is the best of the best. I just wish it was more available in Taiwan.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
Dark brownish orange, small silky orange tinted white head. Nice sweet malt and fruit aroma. taste is excellent - sweet, citrus, biscuit, lots of hops in finish. Very smooth silky mouthfeel. Dangerously easy to drink. Wow, an eye opener, maybe my favourite yet from this masters series we have on our shelves this Holiday season.

seritomi (336) - HUNGARY - MAR 15, 2012
Nagyon tetszetős mély és tiszta rubin szín. Erős almás malátás illat és persze ott tolakodik a masszív alkohol bukéja a sarkában. Testes édes ami nekem nem szokott annyira passzolni de kíséri egy kellemes nem túl harsány komlósság. A vége édes, ragdós és sűrű. Finom. Milyen lehet frissen csapról? Hmmm...

Sdaniel90 (524) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear copper colour with a modest head that fades quickly. Aroma is of sweet malts and dry fruits, strong and intense. Taste is heavy and complex, very drinkable with lots of character. Great, strong finish. One of Fuller’s best.

triskaideka (225) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAY 20, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Bottle @ home. Poured dark amber/caramel colour with an off-white head. Strong malty caramel overtones in the flavour. Not overly hoppy. Underlying warmth from the alcohol. A satisfying experience
