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.

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

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2009
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.

mikkopen (1086) - 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.

Senka (1076) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2016
FTA: Finally found it. Had several pints during vacation in Italy. In an Irish pub. So keg option. Have not seen it since. Was more like a bock rather than strong ale. More malty and hoppy. Loved it.

Bozo_skeleton (1071) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 26, 2015
Ambrťe caramel, carbo tres faible, petit collet fin. Caramel et fruits rouges mais assez leger en intensite. Bien riche en bouche, ronde et fruite, un peu riche en sucre, des notes de pain, de toast. Bonne longueur sur alcool type cherry.

Sdaniel90 (1067) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear copper colour with a modest head that fades quickly. Aroma is of sweet malts and dry fruits, strong and intense. Taste is heavy and complex, very drinkable with lots of character. Great, strong finish. One of Fullerís best.

Andy_ (1065) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Clear copper orange beer with a creamy head disappearing quite quickly. The aroma is caramelly malty with some alcohol. The flavor is mostly caramelly malty sweet with the alcohol coming through. Thereís a little amount of bitterness. The palate is sticky and pretty full. I would have expected something more refined or complex from this beer, now itís just mostly alcoholic.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2009
Bottled. Dark amber, firm beige head. Plain sweet toffee aroma, hint of hops, vanilla and warming alcohol. Flavor has sweetish toffee, little berries and banana fruitiness, alcohol shows even more, solid hops in the sugary finish. Medium to full bodied, a bit sticky lush palate. Utterly simple, but still pleasing enough strong ale.
