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’.

kalervo (1044) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2013
Solid British ale, quite fruity aroma, some similarities with brandy in taste.

fantti (1040) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on kahden sormen paksuinen ja hieman saippuamainen. Hajussa on vahvasti pähkinää ja karamellia, tyylille uskollisesti. Mukana on myös hieman tummaa hedelmää ja leipäisyyttä. Maku on vahvan pähkinäinen, karamellin tukemana. Mukana on myös hieman puuta ja hedelmää. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja hieman tahmaava. Kokonaisuutena Golden pride on mukava ja maistuva brittiale, mutta ei tämä mielestäni tuo mitään lisäarvoa saman panimon 1845- ja ESB-oluille.

popiela (1039) - Poznañ, POLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Pours clear, dark amber. Minimal head. Aroma is vinous, a little bit of caramel and alcohol too. Smooth, warming, nice carbonation. Taste is caramel, then herbal biterness. Nice!

Mad_Ferret (1028) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark amber/copper with a dense yellowed head that doesn’t 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!

espenra (1016) - Kurland, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2010
33cl bottle from Systembolaget. It poured an dark orange colour with a small creamy head. Some carbonation. Aroma is malty with heavy notes of dough, bread, toffee and perhaps some caramel. Flavour is well rounded, smooth and sweet. Notes of roasted malts, hops, alcohol, caramel and hints of syrup. A short aftertaste. A really nice beer.

StoutHead (993) - DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper colour with a shortlived white head. Aroma of malt, hops and spring. Taste is of malt, hops, sugar, caramel and sweet fruits, but has a bitter hoppy aftertaste with lots of alcohol in it. Medium body.

zimbo (983) - SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2012
WIll always conside this a Barley Wine as has been said on the Fuller’s website and as defines so by Michael Jackson. Forms a very easy head and has a clean intense sparkling orangy glow similar to Remy Martin VSOP. Constant head, nutty nose not unlike honey roasted cashews. Chewy with a good deepish bitter end. Once swallowed the long aftertyaste suggests a warming strong tasblet/caramel quality which is heavy but subtle. Very fine.

ravidesai (979) - Bombay, INDIA - OCT 25, 2002
great barleywine. hazy orange color, fluffy head. malt and fruits in the aroma. big malty base with a niuce complexity. strong and warming stuff. Hsad this at Fullers brewery and the guide said that many fullers employees liked to blend the golden pride with the Chiswick bitter. this was a very nice combination indeed.
