This beer is great; fruit & caramel taste; light copper appearance; full body & sweet finish. It was disappeared from the Chilean market but fortunately is back. One of the best ale I’ve drunk ludos68 (56) - - FEB 5, 2017
Birra dal colore ambrato carico tendente al rubino. Aromi e profumi dominanti sono malto caramello biscotto e frutta sotto spirito. Retrogusto liquoroso, alcoolico e riscaldante. Corpo pieno e carbonazione bassa. Cybion (188) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours clear, deep amber/red with a finger off off-white head. Patchy lacing, small amount of carb visible. Aroma is powerfully malty and fruity; wholemeal/farmhouse bread, honey, blood orange cointreau, cognac, cinnamon and various other spices, touch of vanilla and some faintly resinous hops right in the back. Hardly any booze. Taste is sweet but not sickly; again very malty with some dark fruits now coming through in the front along with molasses and dark, maybe spiced rum. Hints of an alcoholic, medicinal, but by no means harsh bitterness develops towards the back and lingers a while on the tongue and sides of the mouth in the long, wet finish, alongside plenty more cereal and bread. Body is full, texture is thick and oily and avoids becoming sticky or cloying, and as expected there’s no real carbonation aside from a slight tingle occasionally. Warming after a few sips! Really fantastically crafted strong English ale that develops smoothly and subtly instead of just blasting you with sticky, sickly malt and booze from the get-go. Exemplary stuff, dunno why I’ve never had it before now! BeerLieutenant38 (98) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 13, 2017
330ml bottle. Deep red colour with minimal off white head. Fruity aroma with a touch of caramel malt. Medium-high sweetness, low bitterness. Full bodied, fairly sticky texture, smooth finish. Alcohol is quite present, but doesn’t bludgeon you. Not tasting this in winter, but it has the feel of a winter warmer. A very satisfying brew. Sdaniel90 (1082) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear copper colour with a modest head that fades quickly. Aroma is of sweet malts and dry fruits, strong and intense. Taste is heavy and complex, very drinkable with lots of character. Great, strong finish. One of Fuller’s best.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Bottle @ home. Poured dark amber/caramel colour with an off-white head. Strong malty caramel overtones in the flavour. Not overly hoppy. Underlying warmth from the alcohol. A satisfying experience Trolleo (1566) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 30, 2014

Sweet malt aroma and a taste that is close up to English barley wine. Vinous is a little pronounced, but it has great flavor shades of soft fruits together with malt, characterizes towards a barley. The large group of beer that British denotes strong ales can vary very much in their expression. Therefore, it is almost impossible to set a standard for what is kind of right for strong ales. Fuller has once again branded English ale in a good way with this Golden Pride. It is simply its own and can not be compared with other strong ales. With elegant soft rounded aftertaste where little hoppy bitterness is present to maintain the good taste of summer berries far in the aftertaste, it is a fine ale. I can not get it expressed often enough, but have to say that if Fuller’s logo is on the label, you can confidently put it in the basket. Fuller is the provider of good quality beer, and it applies to everything that is brewed from there. sccp1910 (251) - BRAZIL - FEB 9, 2016
