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’.

500ml bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a small off-white head. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Pretty sweet with some bitter tones. Malts, caramel, brown sugar, herbs and some spices. A nice strong ale.

The looks are super pin bright deep mahogany dark red, gentle carbonation, creamy thin head. Aroma is sweetish boozy port-like with some toffee. Taste is sweet caramel boozyness, very soft and round. A tad too sweet for my personal taste. A proper Christmas ale in front of a fire place while reading some anorak-themed book. Lovely.

Bottle. Clear copper. Offwhite head. Aroma of caramel, bread, herbs. Taste is sweet, cara, bit of alcohol. Medium body, silky. Hops balance the rich maltyness.

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.

ERB92 (338) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2014
Caramel, bread, dried fruits, brown sugar, grains and grass in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a rich flavoured and well balanced brew with some warming alcohol in the finish.

brnandersen (1959) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
My English rating # 100! This classic would suit. 50 cl. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Clear, deep amber colour with a reddish tine. Thin, creamy off-white head. Good looking, actually. Fruity aroma with oranges, tangerine, bread, toasted malts, dried fruits and a grass-like bitterness. Some alcohol. Rather rich and malty. Taste is sweet. Medium to full body with a creamy to oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with rich fruits and malts. Lovely, classic brew.

JorgeLee (1227) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Curiously ugly bottle, actually. Glorious deep copper coloured beer. Strong brute of a beer, lots of sweetish boozy malt, barely matched with enough hop bitterness. Some Fullers house character, the yeast and maybe hop blend. Drinks easier than 8.5%, but really sits on your head afterwards. I enjoyed it.

ambrosemac (8) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014 does not count
Lovely strong ale with enough character and flavour to make the alcohol strength indiscernible. This is a solid beer, a ’Gate-Keeper’ for the ’Strong Ale’ category..
