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’.

KimJohansen (10486) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
Clear golden with a large off white head. Sweet aroma with toasted malt, caramel and alcohol. Flavour went the same way. Somewhat boozy finish.

pivnizub (10456) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle: Reddish amber coloured, mid-sized, quite firm off-white head, visible carbonation; rich fruity (dryed fruit) aroma, a tinge of molasses, a touch of port and caramel; full bodied, rich sweet flavour; long lasting, warming bitter-fruity finish, becoming dry towards the end with a developing aromatic-hoppy aftertaste; well hidden alcohol. A very rich, complex brew, quite easy quaffable, from a first-class brewery !

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2002
Golden, like it says on the label. This has a vinuous and spicy aroma. Flavours are of brown sugar, burnt toffee and a surpising hops bites. Powerful and delicous.

Fin (10307) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2006
500ml Bottle Sainsbury’s Kidlington 14-04-06. Dark amber, roasted nuts in what is a very poweful aroma. Very good malty (slightly sweet) beer.

allmyvinyl (10285) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2016
Bottle from the Brewery Online Shop. Pours clear red copper with a thin beige head. Aromas of red fruit, caramel, dried fruit and toast. Taste is light sweet, more dried mixed peel, good balance of light bitterness on the finish. Faintly herbal too. Some cedar. Lots to chew on.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Dark amber and a creamy, nice head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and dark fruits. The flavour is rich, full, smooth, malty, fruity and full with a nice bitterness, that develops further in the finish. A beer that is worthy of it’s name.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a beautiful deep rusty orange with a thick densely packed vanilla coloured head that leaves early delicate lace. Rich caramel aroma, slightly earthy, with hints of spicy fruit. Very malty palate, toast and toffee with quince and cherry fruit. Woody and spicy notes, mild bitterness. Full-bodied, chewy, with a pleasantly warming finish. Like a baby barley wine! Delicious!

KyotoLefty (9982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 11, 2008
Big aroma of oranges, caramel, molasses, alcohol, dried fruits, and hops. Deep orange and amber color with a minimal but sturdy head. Sweet, caramel malts, with dried fruits, orange, cherry, a touch of tobacco, alcohol and just enough hops to keep it from cloying. Nice residual sugars, tasting like molasses. Nice balance, sweet but not overly so. Great winter warmer.
