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’.

GregClow (3390) - Toronto, Ontario, - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle from the LCBO. Drink by date in July, drinking it in September - oops! Nice clear reddish-golden with a strong white head. Aroma is big and quite sweet - lots of toffee and lightly stewed peaches, some sweet orange peel and a bit of lightly toasted sugar. Body is full but not cloying. Flavour starts as sweet as the aroma suggests, with toffee/caramel and peach candy prominent, along with a bit of corn syrup and raisin bread, and even a hint of baked spiced apple. It dries out a bit toward the finish, which is moderately bitter, but I suspect the hops would’ve been a bit bigger and provided more balance when it was fresher. But even with some age on it, it’s a really pleasant beer that nicely straddles the line between strong ale and barley wine.

AntonyWilson (321) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 18, 2017
330ml Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy amber with thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel and stone fruit. Beer finishes sweet with caramel notes. Not overly bitter with slight alcohol warmth. Full bodied, medium to low carbonation. Overall the beer has nice flavours that would go well with a hearty meal.

Davros IX (300) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
I can understand why this has the word "pride" in the name as there are, to me, definite echoes of London Pride in this beer. A rich golden, hoppy and quite malty beer with a strong flavour of alcohol. It’s in no way sessionable and although it is nice to try I will not be revisiting.

m.mahu (191) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 9, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours light brown with pleasent white head, which dissipates rather quickly. Tastes like light caramel, toffee, slight wooden barrel taste with nice astringency. Medium carbonation. Very good english ale.

mviljamaa (130) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2017
Pours with a good dense, guinness-like, white foam. Color is very pretty clear, bright dark copper. Aroma has typical strong ale flavours such as a general maltiness and "mango chutney" like aroma. Additionally some port wine, honey, caramel and sweet malts. The aroma is very fine and "luxurious". Palate is pretty nice. There’s oiliness, but it’s not overwhelming, but balanced. Taste has sweet malt and surely it’s "strong ale". Additionally some (slightly burnt) caramel and cognac like aromas. It’s tasty and the 8.5% alc vol gives it a solid body that’s not weak. It’s one of the best ales I’ve had and this is actually an ale that I find pleasing (I usually don’t like ales that much).

BeerLieutenant38 (62) - 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.

Data ważności: sierpień 2015. Barwa burgundowa, piana niska, szybko zanikająca. Aromat bardzo intensywny, chlebowy, słodowy, ale jakiś taki szlachetny. Także nieco suszonych owoców. W smaku również bardzo wyraźne nuty słodowe, skórka od chleba, pumpernikiel, słody prażone. Goryczka średnia, Bardzo dobre.

Kita (2093) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 1, 2017
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear mahogany color with thin soapy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, cognac, resin and herbs. Taste starts with medium sweet caramel and toasted malt, follows by grass, dark fruit and wood, mouthfeel is mild spicy and warming, while finish is medium bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Mahogany pride...
