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.

Gordon’s Finest Gold Lighter Fluid. Bottle bought in a little store in Brussels. Apparently this is Belgium’s answer to Tennents Super or Special Brew. The second most seen item on the Brussels streets (after dog waste) are empty cans of this, and i saw several traps drinking it. It’s no suprise though, it’s cheap, pale, strong and easily obtainable. Very harsh alcohol character, syrupy with searing bitterness. Really unpleasent.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 10, 2004
Compact but little long-lasting foam. Yellow color gold is introduced shining and firm. Much alcoholic one, with a strong and persistent body. Decidedly canted.

The colour is golden yellow; the big, hard foam is white. The smell is full of fruity notes: Sweet apples, apricots and peaches are mixed with the smell of alcohol. The taste is sweet with hints of puff pastry, wheat flour and fruit-flavoured marshmallows, but not in an annoying way. It got a light, plain taste of hops in the background. The soft aftertaste is quite alcoholic, but it got notes of sweet bread, butter (diacetyl) and marzipan. I enjoyed this beer, shame about the high level of alcohol. After drinking a bottle (330 ml), I got very tired and a bit dizzy. Which is strange, I don’t get that reaction when I drink a pint of ESB that contains as much alcohol as in this bottle.

Dark orange-gold; huge yellowish tinted head, fluffy and fast dwindling. Roasted, and toasted, nose, candi sugar, caramel and alcohol. Again roasted taste, malty, both sweet and caramelised, and loads of alcohol - definitely part of the taste in this one. Butter toffees, bit grass, cheap liqueur as supermarket Pineau des Charentes . Slick mouthfeel, alcohol obvious without real -burn, which is remarkable for such strenght. Some time ago, I wondered about "Het Kanon" being called ’Malt liquor’. This is more one, albeit top-fermenting. Out of a can, to top it.

(on bottle)Holding a mere 10% this beer comes out as a real sneaky one. The aroma is like tofee and warm barley, very plesant. The mouth does have alot of warmth, but not like ten percent at all. You get it down, happy about the fields of barly and wells of clear mountainwater, whenyour feet wanna kick of your shoes. A very hot ending, makes this a good warmer afetr a walk by the autum sea.
