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.

JanEric (1204) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2011
Amber, minimal head, flat. Aroma has some alcohol, malts, caramel, clove. Full bodied in taste and palate, reasonable bitter, with grains, malts and almonds. Somewhat dry towards the finish.Very nice but a bit dominaiting alcohol.

CamdenD (1197) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 2, 2006
I was wholly unimpressed with this one. Huge sugars on the tongue and not much else anywhere else. Reminded me of most "doppio malto" available here. Sugary, not even malt sugar, overwhelms everything here. This was on tap. I suppose I should try again given the favorable ratings here.

scotty (1180) - SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2006
This is so well balanced, the sweetness of the malt, the gentle citrus acids of the hops, and the warming alcohol, all work together to produce this top quality brew. A very complex mouthful, with a long lasting finish...and it looks great too!

Dermi (1174) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2012
50 cl, bottled. Pours clear red with a beige head. Aroma: Caramel, berries, malt, spices. Taste: Sweet, banana and herbal flavours. Some pleasant bitterness. Palate: Medium bodied, noticeable carbonation. Alcohol background. Pretty good one.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011
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!

Pours copper red with medium thick off-white head. Aroma is fruity, mandarin, tropical sweet fruits, grapes, sweet mango, some malts, flowers. Taste is quite same, sweet, tropical fruits, fruity sugar, raisins, berries, some floral, malts. Superb beer!

Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 17, 2002
Deep golden-orange colour, pours with little head. Alcohol and butterscotch aroma and a flavour to match. Overall this beer was not incredibly complex and was fairly uninteresting. There are better strong ales on which to spend your money.

Wolfbass (1136) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 19, 2011
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...

mikkopen (1130) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2008
500 ml bottle. Very nice amber orange colour, decent-sized dense head. Fruits and berries, caramel malts and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. The flavour is caramel-malty, with dark fruits, oranges, spices and a warm bitter finish. Balanced and very enjoyable.
