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’.

The absolute best beer that I have ever tasted. Not the most complex beer ever, but sometimes simple pleasures are spoiled by complexity. The taste is heavenly. Anyone lucky enough to sample this in England, will experience what I feel is the epitome of English Strong Ale. Paid a pound 75 at a Sainsbury’s on vacation.

LazyPyro (484) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear dark ruby/amber colour with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, dried fruit, light spice. Taste of rich sweet caramel malt, dried fruit, dark fruits like plum, toffee, a little alcohol, light spice/herbs. Very sweet initially, slight bitter finish though. Full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth oily-creamy mouthfeel, fairly boozy.

allmyvinyl (9250) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2016
Bottle from the Brewery Online Shop. Pours clear red copper with a thin beige head. Aromas of red fruit, caramel, dried fruit and toast. Taste is light sweet, more dried mixed peel, good balance of light bitterness on the finish. Faintly herbal too. Some cedar. Lots to chew on.

AWS9 (624) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle. Pours a ruby, whisky-like colour, with faint lacing. Some plum, red grape, blackcurrent. Dark malts. That’s all well and good, but it’s really too boozy to work for me as a beer. It’s nice as a taster, but I can’t imagine drinking a whole bottle of this. Perhaps one to share after dinner (although perhaps you’d want something even heavier!)

Gehbe (123) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 6, 2016
Deep amber, very clear, medium offwhite head, decent lacing. Aroma is rich with malt flavors: caramel, baguette crust, dried fruit, also some zest, resin and spice, paper/cardboard. Tastes sweetish, but has enough bitterness to keep it well rounded. A nice malty warmer, but I was expecting more. -1 for cardboard smell.

Fules (658) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 5, 2016
Markáns, közepesen telt ízű, fűszeres, gyümölcsös, nagyon enyhe keserűsség. Az utóíze sokáig megmarad.

minihame2 (439) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Clear, reddish copper colour with a small tan head that quickly fades away. Sweet, malty aroma, syrup and caramel. Rich malty flavours with a slightly bitter, hoppy finish. Creamy and soft mouthfeel, very rich bodied with soft carbonation. Great ale with plenty of flavour, very enjoyable.

batupata (26) - FINLAND - MAY 19, 2016
A deep amber coloured clear pour with a pretty thick, creamy foam that lasts a while. The nose is hoppy and sweet. The taste is malty, has nice balance of hops and sweetness. A little bit metallic taste, especially in the aftertaste.

baralgin (16) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle 500 ml. Served chilled. Clear copper color. The foam is thick, whitish, stays for a long time. Wonderful aroma of baked bread, hay, sage. Bitterness is pretty strong immediately after the gulp but smoothly softens in a couple of seconds. Full bodied and rich. Very interesting experience.
