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’.

MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 28, 2009
(bottle) Hazy, copper-ish amber colour with a beige and dense foamy head. Sweet and strong Bock-like cara-malty aroma with notes of caramel, subtle fruity notes and almost ethereally spices. Sweet flavour with a balancing bitterness, full bodied with a calm carbonation. Robust (cara-)malty, slightly toasted base with caramel/toffee, liquorice, subtle fruity elements and again almost ethereally spicy notes; sweet and slightly bitter malt-accented, delicately toasted finish with an inoffensive, but very present alcoholic burn in the warming sense. A hearty, very flavourful brew. 28.IX.09

9/IV/13 - 500ml bottle from Mitra van Bergen (Eindhoven, NL) @ home - BB: 7/II/14 (2013-318)

Clear deep orange to amber beer, big fizzy light beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sweet, malty, sugar, red fruits syrup, bubble gum, honey. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malty start, red fruit jam, sugary, some citrus, bitter hops, strawberry jam. Aftertaste: caramel, sweet malts, honey, red fruit jam, little bitter, some toast. I liked this beer a lot, my fellow tasting buddies did not.

bottle, Waitrose Sidmouth 2008. Dark brown colour with a small head. Fruity nose. Very smooth, deeply malty with raisins, plums and shy hints of citrus fruit. Very malty indeed with a well-rounded malty finish. Delicious.

JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Deep golden-amber pour with a thin head. The aroma is great. Lots of stewed fruit, apple and some pale malt as well. Strong and bracing with a nice warming peppery character. A little bit of orange and a lot of bready character. Slightly sticky mouthfeel and a great balance of malt and hops. Slightly minty with a nice chewy palate. I was in the perfect mood for a beer like this one.

3.3
mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2010
[2652-20091211] Cask. Sweet heavy grainy malt aroma. Clear, dark amber red body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sweet thick syrupy grainy malt flavour. Medium body is bitter and thick. Not bad, fairly golden and pridey.

gyllenbock (9177) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2009
Copper-colored, the foam is a bit dirty white. Aroma was rather inviting, malt toffee, apricot, nuts. The relatively high alcohol content of 8.5%, passed through a bit in the flavor. The beer is sweet, body was quite full. Bitterness is pretty high on the beer.

3.2
gunnar (9094) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear copper with a small frothy, fast diminishing off-white head. Aroma of caramel, deep red fruits and apricot marmelade. Taste is moderate sweet, sugars and marmelade, with some wood and weak alcohol burn at the finish. Sticky mouthfeel.
