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.

A golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of malts. The flavour is sweet, alcoholic and a bit hoppy. (Bottle 33cl)

JonMoore (1939) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with decent sized white head. yeasty/bready aroma with underlying malts. Taste is sort of strange but I like it. Not very subtle; malty, caramel , with a sweet finish. Full bodied with a slightly bitter, then sweet finish.

An intresting little number, little aroma, which u dont expect from a 10% beer, sweet and blonde. Taste is sweet malty and remarkably smooth, with the alcohol quite well hidden. In saying this i expected more and would have liked maybe a spicier flavour, maybe have it again some time.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Label says brewed in Edinburgh for John Martin. Deep golden with an almost absent head. Sweet malts with a pronounced bitter finish that hides the alcohol fairly well. But still this is an extremely potent beer. Are we sure this is top-fermented? 150398

(Bottle 33 cl) Version called "Gordon Finest Gold Blond Merry Xmas" brewed by Scottish Courage in Edinburgh. 5/3/5/2/10=2,5 220302

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Bottle at some weird bar in France. The menu said it was from the UK, but it was definitely this bottle and the alcohol % is correct. Given the bar I’m not surprised. Anyway, this was drinkable but not that enjoyable. Tasted more like a lager with more alcohol. Smooth taste? Please. It’s really obvious that it’s there. Won’t be drinking this one again any time soon..

Dark yellow color, little white head. Spicy, fruity, mildly alcoholic and some licorice in aroma. Flavor has fruits, spices, mild licorice and strong alcohol in the end. Medium to full bodied.

Bottle. Crystal clear golden color with a thin white head and some lacing. This a nice aroma for such high alcohol. Nice sweet grain profile. Very smooth and warming. Good beer. Thanks Doug!
