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: í 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.í Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: íthe Cognac of beersí.

Spab (3663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark golden orange with modest-sized white head. Aroma is caramel, lots of fruit (mostly pear/apple, but some citrus and a little dark fruit) and a little graininess. Flavour has pear, some citrus, pepper and caramel. Alcohol comes through a little in the finish but still easy-drinking. Nice.

Brodies_Best (269) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2011
500ml bottle. Served at room temperature. Pours clear red gold and looks great. Head doesnít last long but thatís ok. Smells awesome. Aroma is of something similar to sherry. Sweet and warm (spices), alcoholic, fruity and malty. Initial taste is smooth, well balanced, alcoholic, warming spices, sweet, fruity. Malty taste comes through with butterscotch or some kind of creamy caramel desert. I would pick this as a desert beer or it could easily compliment a dish which required a bit of smooth fruity sweetness. Good work. Drank this on a cold summerís windy evening in Wellington. Almost 9pm and the sun is still out.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2011
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in an English pint. Pours clear copper with a moderate off-white head. The head fades to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of citrus, caramel, pale malts, pine and earth. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with pine and resinous hops. Hops are well balanced with toasted English malts and caramel. Peppery alcohol is a constant background presence. The finish is long and peppery with caramel malts and pine. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dryish milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent strong English ale. It is very well balanced, with beautiful malts and piney hops. An excellent brew. 2011-11-19

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Deep golden-amber pour with a thin head. The aroma is great. Lots of stewed fruit, apple and some pale malt as well. Strong and bracing with a nice warming peppery character. A little bit of orange and a lot of bready character. Slightly sticky mouthfeel and a great balance of malt and hops. Slightly minty with a nice chewy palate. I was in the perfect mood for a beer like this one.

DerWeg (1628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Dark amber white head. Smells of wet hay, wild honey caramel and citrus. Tastes of crisp hops and toasted grains, blooming tastes of pale fruit, honeyed malts and lemony citrus. Centering note of alcohol, compliments the structure really well. Feels dry and yet fat, long long tasty citrus and grassy hop flavors.

500mL lickbow bottle. Pours exactly like the picture which is comforting I guess. Smells of creamy chrystal malt and a faint whiff of British hops. Not booze. Flavour has more depth to it, with pale and chrystal malt backing up some semi-spicy hops. Alcoholic bite in the finish. Despite the strength and thicker body, it still has a creamy feel to it and goes down easily. I like how Fullerís can produce beers at very high alcoholic percentages which you still want to pound away because of how delicious they are. Gets waaaaay better as it warms. Claims to be í...reminiscent of sweet orange oilí. I wasnít aware oranges produced an oil, interesting. Thanks Fullerís!
