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’.

thb (829) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a bubbly clear bronze with nice lingering head buildup. Aromas of caramel, candied fruits (especially orange). Taste is big, fruity, and spicy. Balanced between hefty bitterness and sweetness throughout. Real peppery character comes through in the finish. Alcohol is hidden in the background turning up the volume. Lovely.

dnoaksson (827) - , SWEDEN - APR 11, 2009
Gĺr in med en hel armé av smaker och belägrar sinnena. Kraftfull utan att bli mastig, balanserad ända in i den sista nyansen. Choklad kan anas, annars är det de knäckiga tonerna som tar mest plats i smakbilden. Fuller’s levererar i vanlig ordning.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours brownish copper in colour, with small whitish coloured head. Aroma is malty, taste is slightly bitter malt, fairly evident alcohol notes. Meh.

adster (804) - HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2014
Intenzív illata pörkölt maláta és karamell aromáját ontja magából, érezzük rajta, hogy nem egy könnyed darabról van szó. Belekortyolva egy rendkívül telt, egész szájat betöltő ízélményt produkál, melyben az illatában megfigyelhető pörkölt, karamellás jegyeken kívül az erősebb imperial stoutokra jellemző zelleres, fás karakter is érvényesül. Erőteljes, testes és igazán különleges, a végletekig kiforrott darab.

BitchPls (803) - FINLAND - FEB 12, 2013
Clear, amber beer with a small white head. Some sweetness on the nose, peach. The body is medium plus. Mouth feel is soft and round. Alcohol warms things up. Sweet caramel, malts, slight and round bitterness, a hint of berries. Very good.

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2011
British Store, Budapest. Sötétebb barnásvörös, fény felé tartva tükrös és csillogó szín jellemzi, habja pedig szivacsos szerkezetű, bézs színű és viszonylag hamar semmivé foszlik. Illata parfümös, aszalt szilvás, mazsolás és karamellás. Ízében ugyanezek vehetők ki, de lecsengésében a komló enyhe keserűsége mellett a fekete étcsokoládé keserűsége is megjelenik, utóízében is hosszan érezhető az aszalt gyümölcsök és egy enyhén csípős alkoholos íz társaságában. Bizsergető, igazán komoly sör, olajos, nehézkes testtel és keserédes, duplabakokra emlékeztető ízekkel.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 25, 2008
Tasted 24/08/2008, 500ml bottle from Regionals (in front of Lars and the Real Girl). Pours a cherry-hued rose gold with an off-white airy head. Big aroma of toffee, caramel and dark stewed fruit. Floral esters abound, a pleasant alcohol note lingers in the bacground and the spicy herbal hop aroma is lovely. In the mouth those aromas continue, with this being a very aromatic beer. It’s all wrapped in a luscious malt sweetness and oily ’heirloom orange’ hop flavour that reminds me of old school Old 95 - hints of liquorice and cough medicine too (in the most pleasant way). Alcohol is warming and, with the late hop bite, begs another sip. This beer is really growing on me and the movie was excellent too.

Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2015
From pint bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper with a thin off-white head and light carbonation. Aromas of raisins, caramel, malt and flowers. Taste starts off with sweet caramel and stewed apple before an orange zest and pepper bitterness washes in. Finishes with raisins and cinnamon. Very decent beer.
