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’.

HV (4) - Utrecht, - JUL 31, 2009
Appearance: deep orange golden colour, fairly long lasting white foamy cap – beautiful. Aroma: malty, with hints of orange and mild spices (nutmeg, coriander), some alcohol. Taste: quite malty, but very refreshing (almost “light”) due to the strong orange flavour, and a mild sweetness. Body: quite sparkly, with heavy malt body. Aftertaste: recurring orange taste, some malt, lightly acidic. Drinkability: it is a very drinkable beer, but you can definitely tell you’ve had a 8.5% beer after one glass

Senka (999) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2016
FTA: Finally found it. Had several pints during vacation in Italy. In an Irish pub. So keg option. Have not seen it since. Was more like a bock rather than strong ale. More malty and hoppy. Loved it.
