Tasted at Den Tatoverede Enke in DK. Was paired excellently with their Sheppard’s pie. Not my favourite Fuller’s beer, but tasty. Pours an amber colour with white head. Taste is quite sweet, with caramel malty body, notes of apricot, cloves and grassy bitter finish. tomer (3516) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 27, 2010
0.33L bottle, small stable head, crystal clear and a little pale copper colour, strong aroma of yeast and herbal hops with some earthy notes.
Dominant malty flavours with some nuts and light raisins and a caorse alcoholic presence which is a bit overwhelming and not very pleasant, big bodied. Could be better. LucasG (19) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 25, 2010
Somebody really like this? I drank Fullers Golden Pride only one time in SÃo Paulo, Brazil and it´s terrible, it taste like washmachine water..... Embrouille (2853) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2010
Bottled 50cl. Caramel, white pepper, leafy earthy english hops, pear, sweat, pop corn, bergamot orange, salt and wild strawberries in the nose- reminiscent of Young’s special London ale with a lot more butterscotch, diacetyl-elements. Caramel accentuated. Nutty and remarkably leafy. Potato components sneaking in. Complex. Sweetish. Low bitterness. Sweet leafy finish which is reminiscent of caramel. Nice, but dissapointing comparing to other beers froms Fuller’s. I’m not a big fan of Cognac. (Michael Jackson’s comparison). This beer definitely doesn’t deserve a high rating.

A good brew, howerever it has a bitterness I don’t appreciate. It is sweet, and has an asprin-like bitterness.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s supermarket. Attractive mahogany pour with good fluffy white head. Aroma is oranges/caramel. Tastes of orange, caramel, honey, festive fruits, very rich. A really warming, satisfying and delicious beer and dangerously drinkable. Glad I bought 12 bottles for Christmas! zvikar (6172) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2009

Bottle. Rich coppery orange-amber with scant head. Aroma is rich, slightly rusty, metallic, with burnt sugar, caramel, jaggery. Nice quaffability, soft palate. Nice burnt lingering aftertaste after a pleasant malty body. Burnt cookie character. Tasty. YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle: rich sweet malt, fruity, caramel, some vanilla notes, toasted wood, faint nutty notes, faint coffee notes, faint cocca notes, nice orangy cirtic hoppiness which balances the malt, light alcoholic bite, rich and satisfying beer.

Bottle, found in Saigon. Dull amber-brown colour. Has a deep, chewy malt aroma showing traces of oxidation. There are subtle brown sugar accents but in general the aroma is muddled. Rich, with light brown sugar, light oxidation, some dried leaf notes from hops, and a little bit of pithy hop bitterness underpinning it all. It lacks the vibrant yeast of a classic example, being pasteurized. Finishes chewy, with a light booziness and a hint of leafy hop bitterness.
