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’.

Botella 33cl en CerveZeres. Cerveza de estilo inglés de alta graduación. Un poco dulzona, en el aroma y el sabor se pueden apreciar toques de caramelo. Cuerpo muy ligero y espuma poco persistente. Muy muy rica.

Moebbels (288) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Clear dark amber body with a quickly disappearing head. Nose has some raisin, floral malt and caramel notes. Taste is bittesweet with a raisiny and fruity flavor and a softly bitter finish. Carbonation is soft but rich with lots of bubbles. Palate is rich and creamy. The alcohol is extremely well hidden, this does not even warm you up like other BW:s. Well made but a little one-dimensional.

Lambister (205) - FINLAND - DEC 25, 2013
50 cl bottle. An amber beer with light orange head. The aroma is malty sweet with notes of fruit, wood, and spices. The flavor is sweet and strong coming from a great maltblend. Follows aromas well and is great brew in every aspect.

spacecube (767) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
500ml bottle, pours clear amber with no head. At first impression, this seemed a bit malt heavy, the main aroma is the blend of malts, and a noticeable alcohol taste. As it warmed up to room temp, the favours of the malt seem to come together better and it’s a nice sipper. Caramel malt textures with some dried fruit flavours, finish is rich, short and balanced, not too bitter. Soft to flat carbonation. Good.

Típica cerveja inglesa. Maltada e com um amargor equilibrado. Deliciosa pedida dentro do estilo. Tem uma cor muito interessante.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Ruby at the top, light amber at the bottom; still, with no head at all; aroma of marmalade / Christmas cake; lots of stewed orangey fruit which was fairly muted at first, but became progressively pronounced and toothsome as the drink went on; reminded me of Bush Ambree in that sense; the alcohol isn’t hidden - this is a warming brew; I had this on cask once at The Whale in Buckingham - it was pretty mind blowing in 1996 and is still excellent bottled in 2013.
