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.

MikeKeller (939) - Kemi, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2010
Deep amber colour and white head. Caramelly malts, nuts and toffee in the aroma. Same goes with the taste which has also alcohol in the aftertaste. Tasty but not very easy to drink because of the alcoholic taste.

jaghana (5878) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle 50cl. A clear amber beer with medium carbonation and small head. Smell is on caramel malt and spicy hops. Aroma is on caramel and intensively on hops, a very intense hops bitterness at the finish that remain several minutes. Medium sweet, with a dry finish, the alcohol is present, the malty character is a bit low, hops brings a low lemony and spicy taste with small chocolate notes.

planky84 (3118) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2010
500ml bottle from my mate Wiggy. Clear dark amber pour with a beige head. Aromas of baked apple, vanilla, caramel, toffee. Flavours of malts, licorice, treacle toffee and sweet spices. Big, bad alcohol burn. Almost meth like. Quite hoppy. Good bitter finish. Robust brew with plenty of balls.

tommann (3621) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a deep copper and amber colour with a small head which quickly went. Aroma is caramel malt, alcohol and some orange. Very sweet to start, with lots of malt and a medium bitter finish. Body is very thick. Really good quaffing ale!

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2010
Bottle. Itís a clear, copper colored beer topped by a diminishing finger-thick beige head. Alcohol, syrupy sweetness, dried apricots and caramel on the nose, rather pleasant. The same goes for the flavor, which is sweet and sugary, with caramel, dried apricots, fresh fruits and a balancing bitterness. Some alcohol too, full-bodied and next to sticky on the palate. Warming, sweet and pleasantly bitter finish. Nice. 100213

danielst (384) - AUSTRIA - JUN 28, 2010
50cl bottle: Reddish brown colour with a vanishing head. Very malty aroma with hints of oxidation, yeast and herbal and tobacco-like hoppiness. The mouthfeel is really full, in the flavour, thereís a big cookie-and-caramel-type sweetness, which is okay but bordering on becoming cloying - and thatís an adjective I donít use inflationary. I mean, if you canít stand sweetness in a beer, you should probably avoid this. I thought it was actually a pretty decent sipper. There was a nice "british" hoppiness and slight roastiness to counteract a little.

hawthorne00 (3814) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2011 Amber with a large thick beige head. Smells of alcohol, complex toffee, muscatels, spicy, fruity and grassy hops. Big initial caramel sweetness fades into dried fruits then yields to a spicy bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel is just short of syrupy. Malt complexity is subtle and the hops are lovely, but goodness itís boozy.
