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: ’ 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.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 9, 2010
Bottle. Clear reddish-copper color with a medium, quickly-diminishing, white head. Nice aroma with biscuity malt, toffee, caramel, fruity notes and some hops. Flavor starts with some sweet chewy maltiness and caramel, and continues with a pleasant, somewhat spicy, hop bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Pretty good.

A hazed amber brown ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice fruity caramel malt with light surranated floral hops, light treacle, vinous character, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with vinous notes, light honey, faint hops, but still solid after 3 years. Bottle from LCBO, Bb July 2012.

mR_fr0g (13977) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle shared with Sarah at home picked up from Sainsbury ’s/ Aroma is raisin and sweet malts with some English yeast esters. Flavour is composed of sweet dark unrefined sugars, melanoidin sugars, rounded nutty amber malts. Sweet dark dried fruits and raisin. Palate is pretty sweet and full bodied, moderate carbonation. Another London tick! Pretty good malt forward beer, good English yeast character.

3.8
Christian (13923) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2005
Dark amber, little head. Aroma of apples, malt, pipe tobacco and caramel. Rich, malty flavour, quite sweet, with some bitterness in the finish. You can sense the alcohol, but it’s not overwhelming.

3.5
bierkoning (13806) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle. Amber color. Plum jam in the aroma. Malty sweet, slightly earthy flavor with dried plums and marmelade. Nutmeg in the aftertaste. Likeable.

3.9
Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2008
500ml bottle picked up at Sainsburys, TCR, London. Deep mahogany body covered by a thin layer, displaying nice laceworks. Dark fruity and nutty aroma. Pungent hop resin in flavour supported by anise and berries. Moderate bitter ending with a noticeable touch of alcohol. Perfect transition from smell to taste. Full bodied (a joy to drink at my hotel room, St Giles 30.04.2008)

2.1
Desverger (13667) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2012
(500ml bottle) Pours a very nice amber with off white head and good lacing but for me that’s where the good stops for me. It certainly has a complex taste but for my palate was far to sweet and i just did not get on with this.
