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.

DerWeg (1501) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Dark amber white head. Smells of wet hay, wild honey caramel and citrus. Tastes of crisp hops and toasted grains, blooming tastes of pale fruit, honeyed malts and lemony citrus. Centering note of alcohol, compliments the structure really well. Feels dry and yet fat, long long tasty citrus and grassy hop flavors.

flying_pig (965) - SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle (500ml from The Banker & The Barrow Boy, London):
Rich, dry malts with a mix of caramel and toffee straight away, this was quickly followed by a strong fruity aroma that lingered in the background and gradually became more pronounced. Some alcohol but the spiciness of the beer covered most of this. The aroma was a strong one with applea, pear and biscuit.
Rich look with a reddish copper appearance and topped with a white, half centimetre head that has a foamy texture and disappears quite fast.
A strong malt presence to start along with a taste of rich, creamy toffee and an accompanying caramel flavour. There is a fruity apple and pear taste too that is complimented by some spice and a linger, sweet taste of sugar.
Smooth with a medium to full body and a warming sensation when drank. The beer has a pleasant alcohol kick along with medium to low carbonation and a background sweetness.

An excellent beer and one that really packs a punch with a well hidden alcohol content for the most part and well balanced, complimentary flavours. A great beer for sipping away at.

maekchu (2196) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Candi sugar and fruity aroma. Golden, indeed. Flavors of candi sugar, delicate soap, and big fruitiness. Nice full body. Not the most complex stuff, but very tasty / It was served too cold, and got better as it warmed up. Really like this one.

abc_roma (18) - roma, ITALY - SEP 17, 2014
Bel cappello di schiuma bianca, liquido limpido con la giusta carbonazione. Naso liquoroso, corpo morbido e avvoltato, predominanza di malti dolci. Finale con una punta di amaro, retrogusto equilibrato. Ottima birra alla spina.

A clear dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma of roasted malt, honey and fruits with a flavour to match. The alcohol comes through for a nice finish. --- BeerItsNice
