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’.

mkel07 (3394) - 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.

AGAquino (659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 500ml bottle bought in Port of Spain, West Bees supermarket. Pours reddish amber with foamy white head and some, not lasting lace. Aroma of malty dried fruits, slight hoppy bitter and candy. Flavour is thick with traces of sweet malts, toffee, and sugar. Alcohol is noticeable but subtle. Nice lingering aftertaste. Most probably, the best beer available in Trinidad.

Gorbalev (2924) - 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 (297) - 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 (372) - 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 (137) - 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

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours beautiful golden copper with an off white head that leaves lots of lacing. Nose is very mild but you can detect notes of toffee, brown sugar and a hint of whisky. Flavour is quite similar to the aroma with aded malt, butter, honey and a little woodiness. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy and those are excellent words to describe this beer, as well as outstanding, beautiful and delicious.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle. A - Coppery caramel brown with an average sized foamy white head. Really good retention, especially considering the ABV, that leaves a nice foamy layer of lacing. S - Some caramel smelling malt serves as a springboard for golden fruit (particularly apple, but some pear too) and some floral and tea like hop aromas. A hint of honey in the background along with a hint of breadiness. Alcohol is just barely present. T - Similar to the nose. Strong malt presences creates the base for this beer with a lot of caramel and bready flavors coming out. Interplaying with each other are golden fruit (apple, pear, golden raisin) and floral/tea hops. They wax and wane throughout the sip. Also present in the background is some honey, butterscotch, spiced, and nutty (more sweet than earthy) flavors. M - Medium body with slightly above average carbonation. Pretty smooth. D - Great drinkability. The alcohol is very well hidden and the flavors are well balanced and none of them overpower the others. Easy on the palate and pretty tasty (dangerously so for the ABV). Notes: Best before 01/01/11. A solid beer that is a good example of an English Strong Ale. A touch on the sweet side, but it has enough to counterbalance that. Dangerously easy to drink given the ABV. It didn’t necessarily blow me away, but it is definitely worth getting a deserve a place near the top as far as English Strong Ales are concerned.
