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’.

superhaffy (22) - NORWAY - MAY 17, 2014
Klar rødlig veske nesten uten skum. Aroma av karamell, treverk og litt urter samt alkohol. I smaken er det mye sødme, karamell og søte bakevarer. God munnfølelse men litt for mye alkohol, flott bitterhet i avsluttningen. En god koseøl på kalde kvelder, slik hver kveld er i London.

Golden amber in colour, with a good head. Has a rather earthy aroma with rich malt. A med-full palate with malt sweetness balanced by firm bitterness. A rich mouthfeel that lingers.
