viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Strongroom festival. A fat, un-nuanced alcohol whiff and some sweetness and nut much else. Not golder as such but mid brown. Flat and syrupy, the alcohol so dominates that itís not very pleasant, tastes like Eastern European tramp beer.

fiulijn (19380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013
Cask at Bishopís Arms, MalmŲ, Gustav Adolf Torg
Beautiful amber color, the head from the sprinkler is short lived. Mild caramel aroma and more pronounced caramel flavor; it has a moderate nuttiness, and correct bitterness; give it some time, and it will show some silky liquor esters too in the aroma, subtle.
A good beer, but not as rich as it should be; not enough malty.

jookos (5604) - FINLAND - JAN 29, 2013
Cast. Dark amber clear. Sweetish caramel, light english earthy, woody hops. Medium bodied, sweet caramel malty. A bit boozy. Some darker, sweetish fruity flavours along the lines of raisins and dark syrup. A bit of yeast. A strong sweet malty ale. A bit too dark, condensed for me.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Cask at the Spread Eagle, Croydon. It pours clear amber with a small off-white head. The nose is golden syrup, wood, leather, spice, sultana, date and toffee. The taste is wood, spice, golden syrup, raisin, sultana, toffee, light astringency, alcohol warmth, with a dry, warming. Medium-full body, soft carbonation and viscous mouth-feel. Very smooth indeed. A quaffable winter warmer.

jfb (5567) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2012

Borresteijn (6498) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2012
Cask at In de Wildeman. The Golden Pride was beer of the month not too long ago, but that was the kegged version (are you reading this, my fellow Dutch raters? ;-) Clear copper amber colour, no head. Aroma of marmelade, bitter fruitcake, alcohol, white raisins, light spicy. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, marmelade, sweet alcohol, candied fruits, nice bitter hoppy finish with a little earthy liquorice root. Medium-bodied. Better than the kegged version.
