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’.

Cybion (168) - 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!

ludos68 (44) - - 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.

john44 (2718) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle. Reddish Amber in colour. Very heavily malted; toasty malts, caramel, toffee, hint of chocolate. Fruity; citrus-orange, marmalade, peel. Hoppy; earthy and spicy hops. Intense strong flavours. Heavy alcohol hit. Full-bodied & syrupy. Sweet malty fruity strong ale. Dry malty lasting finish. English Strong Ale or Barley Wine?. Definitely a Classic; a Great Beer! (2016-02-08)

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
- braune Farbe mit leichtem Rotstich - leichte, schnell zerfallende Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Röstmalz, braunem Zucker, Honig, Toffee, Marzipan, süßem Sherry, Trockenpflaumen, etwas Rum, Eiche und relativ viel Alkohol - die Carbonisierung ist mir für diesen Typ etwas zu moussierend - der Antrunk ist auf den ersten Schluck schon sehr zuckrig-süß - erst danach entfalten sich die diversen Aromen angenehm nebeneinander - leider ist mir aber der Alkohol durchgehend zu dominant schmeck- und riechbar - die bittere Hopfennote versöhnt dann gegen Ende etwas Fazit: Der Alkohol dominiert etwas zu sehr

500 ml bottle. Pours clear ruby with a very short-lived off-white head. Aroma of caramel, wood, slightly alcoholic, warm. Taste is mostly caramel, pepper. High carbonation. Nice beer.

Steffee_He (8) - COLOMBIA - NOV 13, 2016 does not count
This beer has a really strong oud wood aroma which you can also taste but it also has honey, rum, molases, oak, leather, and of course malt. I feel its a little unbalanced because that leathery notes are stronger than the others and the aftertastes is a little rough. Still a great beer. Maybe its because it has more alcohol. The body is strong like maple, really turbid. Really good beer.
