Share in the joy of Golden Pride

Everybody loves a pint but good things come in smaller measures too. Golden Pride is a premium, superior-strength bottled ale, bursting with flavours of sweet orange oil and toasted grains. At 8.5% ABV, it's to be savoured like a fine wine.

The cognac of beers

Equivalent in strength to Belgian Abbey beer or barley wine, Fuller's Golden Pride provides one of our richest drinking experiences. Described as the 'cognac of beers' by one leading beer writer, it's a deep-amber drop of distinction that finds favour with even the most discerning palate.

Brewer's notes

Rich, malty aromas lead to a similarly styled palate, with sweet and bitter flavours expressed in good balance. There's sweet orange oil, toasted grain and spicy fruit cake flavours on the tongue, and an intense, lasting finish.

Food pairing

Get in a stew with 1845.

Pours a deep bronze and offers aromas of dried fruits, toffee, some subtle honey and nuts.

Its full body has the depth to stand up to the strong flavours of the stew, where the sweet aromas carry through onto the palate and that sweetness will complement the natural sweetness of the dish.
