In 1992, Gordon launches Finest Gold, a strong and refined beer with a typically Scottish character, combining the forces of charm and persuasion. Its origins and its strength (10% degrees of alcohol) give it its smooth taste and explosive nature. The taste of this incomparable beer is nevertheless entirely suited to the new demand of its many enthusiasts. Gordon Finest Gold is today available in 33 cl and 50 cl cans.

From Hipercor Huelva. In Teku glass. Waching "¿Que paso anoche?" The alcohol is noticeable although it doesnt make it too much disgusting

Clear golden, quickly disappearing white head Very similar to strong Bavaria aroma Sugar, honey, herbaceus, cereals Not as bad as I though, a lot of alcohol but there is something else....some bitter ending (hops)

An insult to beer with a high percentage. It is a Pilsener with the dullest aroma and the most absurd alcohol percentage which never returns in it’s taste (apart from it being alcoholic). Don’t be bothered to buy this unless your a (tasteless) alcoholic.

Aspecto de lager, amarillenta y pajiza. Poca espuma. Olor a lager con más alcohol. Sabor a lager con mucho alcohol. Muy amarga y poco agradable. Fuerte sabor alcoholico. Mediocre.

Bottle. Clear bright golden body, medium to small head. Aroma has sweet malt, honey-like hoppiness and only some light booze. Quite sweet malty taste with more honey, some creamy toffee and medium hoppiness. I am drinking this properly cooled so the alcohol in it is not sharp at all and the sweetness is toned down too. For the high alcohol content it’s a pretty easily drinkable pale beer. As I said, this needs to be properly cooled.
