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.

Keg and bottle, several times.
In short: boozy beverage.
Quite unbalanced beer, some harsh mouthfeel. It is really aprreciated by many people i know, mainstream beer drinkers. Average to poor.

Renobob (1051) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde qui tape beaucoup trop sur l’alcool. Sucre candi bien présent aussi. Pas terrible.

VDuquerroux (502) - Airvault, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear golden orange beer with yellow hues at the bottom of my glass. Medium white head with a medium retention. Good lacing. Herbal aroma, biscuit, fruit, alcohol. Medium warming sweet, light bitter. Full body, thin texture, soft carbonation, sweet caramel finish with a herbal note. Overall, great look, pleasant aroma but a bit too warming. Lack some character.

Diabobale (262) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una strong lager molto alcolica, sorretta da una buona struttura del corpo. Molto maltata, luppolata non in maniera esagerata

freretoc (981) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 3cl au Kilarney entre pote, couleur blonde, mousse peu présente effervescence très moyenne, une bière avec une grosse attaque sur le sucre et le caramel, continuité sur la résine. Un peu juste.

Fashawn (306) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
Buona birra, in stile Gordon, violenta ed estrema ma con proprietà organolettiche non eccelse. Aroma di orzo, qualche sentore lieve di frutta sotto spirito e tanto alcool. In bocca è lo stesso, caramello dolce, carbonatazione sostenuta e corpo medio. Buona birra se cerchi l’alcool, ma niente di indimenticabile. Maledettamente beverina, nasconde bene l’alcool che alla fine stronca von violenza.

Calisky (1342) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2014
bu chez un pote.. Couleur jaune dorée, petite mousse. Nez d’alcool, orge, notes vieux fruits, très sucré et sirupeux. Gout très malté sucré, alcool, caramel assez mauvais. Pas si horrible, mais a boire pour l’alcool.

Syfher (177) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle of 33cl. Booze, easy, usual booze with strong alcohol taste.. Nothing much more to say.

Mainuh_man (256) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear golden with a rocky white head leaving decent lacing. Sweet malty aromas, almost like syrup. Butterscotch and alcohol also present. Flavor is quite sweet with lots of bready malt. Middle to end, herby hops develop along with alcohol. Fully body with a sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, a strong, sweet beer with nice malt character, but not much complexity.
