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.

MarkoNm (758) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a clear ambery color, topped with a decent and frothy cream colored head. Malty aroma, some roasty notes, fruit and alcohol can also be picked up. Taste starts roasty and sweet, some easy bitterness and a bit of that alcohol in the finish. Not bad, just not my liking, really.

Cimbasso (243) - - DEC 5, 2014
Copper colour with a whitish head. Good aromas of malt and dried fruit. The taste is very rich and complex - toasted malts, dried fruit, figs and marmalade all combine to give a really satisfying flavour. Very good mouth feel. This is a really lovely, subtle well-made beer. Another good one from Fullerís, and great for Christmas drinking.

edsspoon (537) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle - amber with a foamy light brown head. Aroma of sherry, chocolate and roast malt. Taste of chocolatey malt, a little toasty, some dark fruits, sherry and fruit cake. A little alcohol works its way in but its not really unwelcomed. Medium body, low carbonation, nice and warming. Really nice beer for winter.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Yamaya on sale. 8.5% surprisingly a reddish amber pour on a beer called Golden Pride. A big sweet fruity caramel aroma that is very malt forward. Farily smooth mouthfeel on a medium body. The taste is a wee bit astringent - mostly malty caramel but it has some fruitiness(plums, stone fruits), light chocolate and bitter astringent notes. Not bad, the 8.5% is not so noticeable making for a pretty decent British beer. As you keep drinking it, it continues to open up and reveal more layers a truly pleasant surprise. The alcohol kicks in in the pit of your stomach with a pleasing warmth on a winter evening.

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours Golden Amber with a Cream head. Sweet boozy malt on the nose. A bit of a dried fruity booziness with a decent supporting cast of hops. Nice bitterness to finish. Good stuff.

Ambro206 (148) - ITALY - NOV 16, 2014
Difficile imitare una birra cosž. Si presenta bionda tendente allíambrato, caratteristica che tradisce la sua robustezza, con una bella schiuma. Gli aromi sono caramellati e floreali. Nonostante la gradazione la birra rimane giustamente bilanciata e piacevole.

Trappis**d (21) - Dorset, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Yum! Fruity raisin aroma, liquid gold a triumph from Fullers, tastes of steeped fruits, prunes, hoppy and rich , full bodied, great for an autumn day or by a roaring log fire at Christmas time, not easy to find so if you see it buy it.
