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’.

Bottle - Clear light amber colour, medium and persistent off-white head. Sweet malty aromas with fruity notes. Taste is sweet malty with some cookies, bread and caramel, touch of honey, gentle herbal bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel, rich malty and fruity finish with some alcoholic tone. Great strong ale.

likeatrainwreck (443) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Deep copper with a white head that vanishes quickly. Taste is mainly malt and marmalade, some alcohol warmth, metallic finish... decent sipper but a bit uninspiring.

sjorsvdg (407) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2016
Deze English strong ale heeft een bijzonder aroma: vieux en boerenjongens. De alcohol komt ook goed door in de smaak en het mondgevoel. Verder proef je een heel lichte hint van mokka en perziken. Prima.

mice (781) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Kirkas punertavanoranssinruskea olut melko runsaalla vaalealla vaahdolla. Vaahto laskeutuu hetken päästä, mutta pinnalle jää edelleen pieni kerros. Samoin pitsiä jää lasin reunoille hieman. Tuoksu miedosti eksoottisen hedelmäinen sekä puumaisen havuinen. Ennen kaikkea tuoksua hallitsee toffeinen karamellisuus. Myös maku on vahvasti toffeisen karamellinen ja maltainen, aavistuksen hedelmäinen sekä puinen. Alkoholi tuntuu jälkipuolella hieman. Humalan aromit ovat aika täydellisesti piilossa. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen, hiilihappoja kevyesti. Hieman yksiulotteinen kokonaisuus.

LazyPyro (521) - 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.

sharkydodson (1129) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUL 21, 2016
the aroma is caramel and fruity with hints of toffee, lollipop, port and tropical fruits... the taste is caramel and fruity with notes of red wine, toffee, candy, sweet citrus and almond... sweet and dry aftertaste...

allmyvinyl (9318) - 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 (631) - 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 (173) - 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.
