COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its dark-as-night packaging, Gordon® Finest Chrome® has all the coolness of a Scottish loch. Its authentic, thoroughbred taste – brusque in the attack, but then warm on the palate – exudes appeal. This is a wild, robust beer, weighing in at 10.5% alcohol by volume, whose genuine, bold character fascinates, as it brings a breath of the moors to the heart of urban life and draws on its traditional qualities to create a contemporary feel. Gordon® Finest Chrome® is the heir to a magnificent past – all the better to put you in touch with the future.

zacgillbanks (2244) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Can from E.Leclerc supermarket, Fougeres, Brittany, France. Pale golden coloured with alcoholic toffee and fruity flavours, a warming zesty body followed by a sugary pineapple finish. Too little flavour for its extremely high ABV.

rok1024 (1076) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUL 13, 2014
Clear golden yellow appearance, medium low head. Malty grainy aroma. Sweet, plain taste and palate. Average strog malt liquor, unconvincing.

venom666 (328) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 31, 2014
Absolutely unbalance. The aroma es much better than the taste, which is metallic and alcoholic. Some malty hints, but very hidden.

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 24, 2014
Couleur claire dorée, sans mousse. Nez de Corn Sugar (maïs glucose) mauvais et alcool... Gout pareil, mauvais et alcool. Sans carbonation... fin horrible (mauvais alccol et metal), bière pour les rebus!

CanCrusher (610) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - SEP 10, 2013
Can 0,50L. Clear, golden colour, with small frothy, white head that goes away quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma of white wine, lime, apple and corny malts. Taste is moderate sweet, with strong white wine taste presence, alcohol is also very noticable. I think it will get "retired" soon...

Melkart (281) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - JUL 5, 2013
It starts well, with a sweet taste, but the middle and the ending are extremely unbalanced. Too much alcohol taste.

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 1, 2013
Can 50cl, a clear yellow beer without head. Ouahhh, this is near gasoil, just corn sugar and burning alcohol, no hops no aroma just sugar and light caramel, terrific !

Can, bought @ Martins Web Shop. Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, fizzy, white head. Aroma has metal, maize, vinious. Lowish carbonation, fine oily mouthfeel. Flavour has mild maize, metal, vinious, alcoholic. Warming. Not as horrible as expected.
