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’.

Foffern (1165) - Bodř, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a golden, dark bronze colour with a medium, light brown head that fades fast. Pretty flat carbonation. Sweet aroma of leather, dried fruit, fudge, heather, oak, liqueur and some hops. The flavour is similar but is a little light. Dry ending. Slick and mouth feel, and has a medium bitterness. A pretty decent and complex aroma but the flavour is surprisingly light. Nice bitterness though.

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2014
Intenzív illata pörkölt maláta és karamell aromáját ontja magából, érezzük rajta, hogy nem egy könnyed darabról van szó. Belekortyolva egy rendkívül telt, egész szájat betöltő ízélményt produkál, melyben az illatában megfigyelhető pörkölt, karamellás jegyeken kívül az erősebb imperial stoutokra jellemző zelleres, fás karakter is érvényesül. Erőteljes, testes és igazán különleges, a végletekig kiforrott darab.

Bottle @ White Horse, Parsons Green. Pours deep amber with bright orange aroma. Has a robust fruitiness in the taste with dried fruits, toffee, caramel and port-like characteristics, with lots of bitter malts on the finish. A great barley wine!
