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.

Mad_Ferret (1007) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark amber/copper with a dense yellowed head that doesnít lace that much. Big sweet aroma with syrupy bready and marmalade fruity apricot and orange notes. Some salty peppery leather and pointy hops. Taste is also quite sweet, but just enough to stay elegant. Decently complex with lots of marmalade fruit, bread, caramel, spice, some leather and hops. Big body with soft low carbonation, but still very drinkable. A very nice beer!

CanCrusher (963) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber colour, with small light brown head. Rich and intensive sweety aroma of orange, peach, ananas, caramel. Full bodied ale, lightly sweet at the start, but then turns into a bitter aftertaste. You can feel the taste of smoke and cask wood in the mouth. There is also a sign of alcohol in the background. Very nice balanced beer.
