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: í 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.í Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: íthe Cognac of beersí.

sunstoneale (75) - MOLDOVA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle, pours copper dark-amber with a gorgeous white head that persist in a thin layer for a long time. Aroma of dried apricots, honey, caramel, some metal notes. Thick slightly oily body. Taste starts caramel sweet with some hints of toffee and morphs into a slightly metallic hop bitterness with hot alcohol flavors. A nice strong ale but would have been much greater if not for the evident alcohol in the aftertaste.

TBone (17316) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2009 Bottled
Dark copper brown. Small brown head. Crisp, menthol nose like in Fullerís Old Winter Ale. Medium-bodied. Coffee, salt, hops in well-balanced taste. Good but not a typical barley wine like it was styled in an advertisement. (6/4/7/4/14 3.5)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 02/2010). Clear amber color, steady creamy beige head. Strong aroma of toffee, nuts, menthol and lemon. Thick, caramelly, alcholic, nutty malty with toffee and dark fruits. Long alcoholic aftertaste. Hard to enjoy so much as drinkability is poor. (6/4/6/3/12 3.1)
