COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rich, toasty, nutty nose. Deep amber colour with a creamy head. Stunning flavour with - as the description says - oranges, and sweet malt. Finish initially smooth and gradually sharpens into a pleasing, slightly tangy lingering, bitter finish. A winner, and my new favourite from fullers.

I tried this beer on November 20, 2011 after purchasing from the Queenís Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a translucent dark reddish gold colour with a thin rocky tan cap. The aroma was grains, sweet malt, caramel, and floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bocied with medium carbonation. The flavour was cereal, sugar, and grains. Has a lot in common with a North American Stock Ale. Definitely not my favourite beer from Fullerís.

Odd. Dom, get it on tonight, drink this. Canít get my head round it. Smells like a no, tastes like a no, too much alcohol, too sweet, but then kinda works. But a low score cause none of the parts are very good and the sum total isnít very good. But then there is something that works. How does that work? Definitely in the barley wine realm of beer. Joke time.... when is a wine actually a beer? When itís a barley wine. Youíre right, iíll ignore stand-up. Definitely for the best. Though I am funny, honest. Only problem is that in my old job I was pretty sure I was the funniest person that worked there, no longer true.... though Iím not sure all staff would agree. Theyíd be wrong if they didnít.

Che meraviglia questa golden pride. Splendido ambrato con schiuma traboccante, aroma netto di malto e sentore luppolato, e in bocca spettacolosa, per armonia ed equilibrio...

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 As nose meets glass, Golden Pride exudes a strong smell of alcohol, too strong for my tastes because it masks the smells of oak and cinnamon which can be found on closer inspection. The beer is a dark amber/red in colour, fairly attractive with a quickly diminishing head. After tasting one must again feel that alchol plays to large a part and that although it provides a pleasant, warming finish, the other flavours in this beer are simply not strong enough to compete. A pleasant beer, but the drinker must seek out the notes beyond the alcohol as they do not immediatly reveal themselves.

Pours dark clear amber. White head. Aroma and flavor is very malty. Also nuts, vanila, cola and some alcohol. Aftertaste has some peppery feel because of the strong alcohol.

Nice amber color with a thin white head. Nose is caramel and raisin. Aromas are caramel, pine, roasted malts and alcohol. Nice hoppy bitter and sweet finish. Low carbonation, strong body. Well-balanced, powerful and aromatic strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
