COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and can.
Ingredients: Water, Malt, Sugar, Hops.
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.

For something this strong, the Gold is very drinkable and not too offensive. How do they manage that when so many of the beers beside this one are very poor? Well, that’s it for the praise: this is all malts and that’s bad, but still, there’s a bit of a redeeming taste that I have to label as poppey, though I don’t eat poppey.

Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma and flavor of malt, honey and alcohol, the flavor is stronger than the aroma. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and moderated carbonation.

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.
