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’.

HV (4) - Utrecht, - JUL 31, 2009
Appearance: deep orange golden colour, fairly long lasting white foamy cap – beautiful. Aroma: malty, with hints of orange and mild spices (nutmeg, coriander), some alcohol. Taste: quite malty, but very refreshing (almost “light”) due to the strong orange flavour, and a mild sweetness. Body: quite sparkly, with heavy malt body. Aftertaste: recurring orange taste, some malt, lightly acidic. Drinkability: it is a very drinkable beer, but you can definitely tell you’ve had a 8.5% beer after one glass

Nice English ale, it resembles barley wines very closely, but this of course against the sore feelings of the connaisseur. Very sweet and a high note of raisin and caramel.

Quick3Beers (1505) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2017
From notes. Pours a gold from a tap, thick white fluffy head. Diacetyl aroma doesn't show up in the flavor, otherwise thick and malty. Okay beer.

nickd717 (4996) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 23, 2017
Bottle at London's Pride, Heathrow. Clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma is Crystal malt city, deep caramel and toffee notes, some orange peel. Flavor is very sweet, crystal up the wazoo, minimal bitter to balance. Medium full feel, syrupy, low carbonation. Barleywine is obviously life, but is this life? Hard to say. Michael Jackson called this the "cognac of beers". In his words, this beer isn't "bad" but it's not really a "thriller" and I wouldn't exactly say "you rock my world" or "beat it" to this beer, so it seems like it's probably life, but the issue isn't "black or white".

peponi (2103) - Strzelce Wielkie, POLAND - OCT 19, 2017
Aroma: bready, roasted caramel, flowers and herbs, esters. Appearance: deep amber color and creamy head. Taste: medium herbal bitterness, roasted caramel, malty, bready, toasted, esters, red fruits, quasi-semi-sweet. Palate:medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: Really nice english strong ale, balanced and complex taste, well-covered alcohol.

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