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’.

From notes. Pours a gold from a tap, thick white fluffy head. Diacetyl aroma doesn't show up in the flavor, otherwise thick and malty. Okay beer.

Bottle at London's Pride, Heathrow. Clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma is Crystal malt city, deep caramel and toffee notes, some orange peel. Flavor is very sweet, crystal up the wazoo, minimal bitter to balance. Medium full feel, syrupy, low carbonation. Barleywine is obviously life, but is this life? Hard to say. Michael Jackson called this the "cognac of beers". In his words, this beer isn't "bad" but it's not really a "thriller" and I wouldn't exactly say "you rock my world" or "beat it" to this beer, so it seems like it's probably life, but the issue isn't "black or white".

Nice clear dark amber color. Creamy caramel, toffee, raisins and light spices with some herbs in aftertaste. Taste is creamy malty bitter. Strong but really flavorful.

De geur is lekker vol. De mooi donker. De smaak is zoals een donkere leffe. Niet slecht, maar niets speciaals.

Alebarasi (196) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - AUG 29, 2017
Clear dark copper color with 2-finger high off-white head. Full syrupy body, soft carbonation. Smell of dark fruits, caramel, molasses, cognac, port wine, honey, berries, plums, banana and herbs. Taste is malty and bittersweet with aromas, similar to smell - caramel, resins, toffee, sugary and barley wine notes upfront. Gentle alcohol warmth in the end. Excellent!

OminouSC2 (1086) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2017
Amber colored, small beige head. Aromas of caramel, dried fruits, bananas and alcohol. Sweet taste with alcohol, caramel, fruits and malt. Sweet and alcoholic finish.

weihenweizen (4459) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle, best by date of December 1, 2018, poured into a glass. Clear dark Amber. Aroma is ripe oranges, medium body, some carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is rich ripe oranges and caramel malt.

GhostS (595) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUN 12, 2017
Aroma e bogată, intensă, plăcută și ”dulce”; un mix foarte reușit de multă caramelă, flori, fructe (caise/piersici) caramelizate, dulceață de fructe concentrată cu puțin alcool; totul pare un desert exotic/oriental foarte dulce. Gustul e cumva mai redus din intensitate și concentrație, cu aceleași flori, caramelă, fructe caramelizate și dulceață din aceste fructe, adăugînd ceva amăreală, totul ușor și fin diluat cu alcool și căldură plăcută de alcool. E foarte bună, plăcută, bogată și interesantă, ideală pentru a fi servită ”singură”, lent și nimic altceva.
