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: í 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.í Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: íthe Cognac of beersí.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2016
Bottle 500ml. Served at room temperature. Pours copper. Head is averaged sized, off-white and lasts well. Aroma is rich and amazingly complex with notes of amontillado sherry, burnt toffee, caramelized dates, dark cherries, dried apricots soaked in brandy, cedar and a pinch of Christmas spices. Flavour is smooth with a very light earthy bitterness; toasted malts, brandy, burnt brown sugar, figs, dried cranberries, glazed oranges and spiced cedar notes in the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, oily texture and a long warming finish. Incredible English Strong Ale! I true winter warmer in every sense!

Bottle. Pours copper brown and clear with a small tan head. Fruity and spicy with some plum and sherry, light wodden note and a hint of pepper and light roasted and caramel malty notes in the back. Medium to thick body with a light sweet taste that turn into a nice dry finish. Good balance. Carbonation is medium and the alcohol is noticeable and causes some warmth. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Flavor is fruity and spicy as well, sherry and spices, pepper note grows stronger. Complex but familiar malty flavor. Leaves a a medium strong dry and light peppery aftertaste.

sunstoneale (74) - MOLDOVA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle, pours copper dark-amber with a gorgeous white head that persist in a thin layer for a long time. Aroma of dried apricots, honey, caramel, some metal notes. Thick slightly oily body. Taste starts caramel sweet with some hints of toffee and morphs into a slightly metallic hop bitterness with hot alcohol flavors. A nice strong ale but would have been much greater if not for the evident alcohol in the aftertaste.
