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’.

LazyPyro (919) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear dark ruby/amber colour with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, dried fruit, light spice. Taste of rich sweet caramel malt, dried fruit, dark fruits like plum, toffee, a little alcohol, light spice/herbs. Very sweet initially, slight bitter finish though. Full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth oily-creamy mouthfeel, fairly boozy.

lello4ever (918) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 Strong ale inglese della Fuller?s. Ambrata riflessi rossi, con schiuma compatta, al naso prettamente caramellata. Consistenza leggermente oleosa, pur caratterizzata dal dolce ha una certa amarezza in retrogusto. Piuttosto forte e alcolica con 8.5%. Non mi ha molto convinto nel complesso, è buona ma il voto medio è un po’ troppo alto

mice (912) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Kirkas punertavanoranssinruskea olut melko runsaalla vaalealla vaahdolla. Vaahto laskeutuu hetken päästä, mutta pinnalle jää edelleen pieni kerros. Samoin pitsiä jää lasin reunoille hieman. Tuoksu miedosti eksoottisen hedelmäinen sekä puumaisen havuinen. Ennen kaikkea tuoksua hallitsee toffeinen karamellisuus. Myös maku on vahvasti toffeisen karamellinen ja maltainen, aavistuksen hedelmäinen sekä puinen. Alkoholi tuntuu jälkipuolella hieman. Humalan aromit ovat aika täydellisesti piilossa. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen, hiilihappoja kevyesti. Hieman yksiulotteinen kokonaisuus.

Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 Tonnes of aroma. A dark redish brown nectar of pure gold and flavors in a next to perfect mix. It has strength, roundness, maltyness, freshness and just about everything one could wish of a really great beer.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours beautiful golden copper with an off white head that leaves lots of lacing. Nose is very mild but you can detect notes of toffee, brown sugar and a hint of whisky. Flavour is quite similar to the aroma with aded malt, butter, honey and a little woodiness. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy and those are excellent words to describe this beer, as well as outstanding, beautiful and delicious.

edsspoon (892) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle - amber with a foamy light brown head. Aroma of sherry, chocolate and roast malt. Taste of chocolatey malt, a little toasty, some dark fruits, sherry and fruit cake. A little alcohol works its way in but its not really unwelcomed. Medium body, low carbonation, nice and warming. Really nice beer for winter.

Cimbasso (886) - - DEC 5, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2015 Copper colour with a whitish head. Good aromas of malt and dried fruit. The taste is very rich and complex - toasted malts, dried fruit, figs and marmalade all combine to give a really satisfying flavour. Very good mouth feel. This is a really lovely, subtle well-made beer. Another good one from Fuller’s, and great for Christmas drinking. Just re-read my old review, and I don’t want to change a word. This beer is still a classic. As Michael Jackson said ’The cognac of beers’.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2004
Beautiful deep amber colour and a nice clinging head. Extremely malty (toffee) and vinuous with a very warming alcohol presence. Excellent for a cold winter evening. Lacking the complexity and woodlike touch of the Vintage Ales, but still a great beer.
