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 (3402) - 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.

Nice clear dark amber color. Creamy caramel, toffee, raisins and light spices with some herbs in aftertaste. Taste is creamy malty bitter. Strong but really flavorful.

De geur is lekker vol. De mooi donker. De smaak is zoals een donkere leffe. Niet slecht, maar niets speciaals.

Alebarasi (136) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - AUG 29, 2017
Clear dark copper color with 2-finger high off-white head. Full syrupy body, soft carbonation. Smell of dark fruits, caramel, molasses, cognac, port wine, honey, berries, plums, banana and herbs. Taste is malty and bittersweet with aromas, similar to smell - caramel, resins, toffee, sugary and barley wine notes upfront. Gentle alcohol warmth in the end. Excellent!

GhostS (421) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 12, 2017
Aroma e bogată, intensă, plăcută și ”dulce”; un mix foarte reușit de multă caramelă, flori, fructe (caise/piersici) caramelizate, dulceață de fructe concentrată cu puțin alcool; totul pare un desert exotic/oriental foarte dulce. Gustul e cumva mai redus din intensitate și concentrație, cu aceleași flori, caramelă, fructe caramelizate și dulceață din aceste fructe, adăugînd ceva amăreală, totul ușor și fin diluat cu alcool și căldură plăcută de alcool. E foarte bună, plăcută, bogată și interesantă, ideală pentru a fi servită ”singură”, lent și nimic altceva.

kraddel (8576) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2017
Blind tasting with Dr. Beer, served in black glassware. Smell is bit of esthers ( mild ) bit of overripe fruits. Some biscuit malts, some alcohol notes as well. Mild peppery notes. Taste is full, mild bitter, creamy, some yeast flavors, bready / biscuity malts, some very minor caramel. Medium MF, OK carbo.

huineman (726) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 3, 2017
50 cl bottle served in Fuller’s shaker at Mad Bishop and Bear, Paddington station concourse. Pours clean dark copper orange to ruby red, tan long-lasting head (quite unusual for an English ale). Aroma is intense: rip banana, red berries, clove, cinnamon. Mouth is powerful, wide, sweet’n’sour. Fast it goes down the throat, even though it lasts quite long afterwards. Nice, though somewhat cloying.
