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.

16.09.2013. 0,5l Can. Golden yellow colour with white head. Strong malty aroma. Rich beer with alcohol and sweet malts. Strong with low bitterness. Aftertaste is soft. This beer is a little heavy and its not very refreshing. Low on carbobation to.

Worthless sugar water. Clear and flat, has nothing but sweetness. Tastes like a failed brew.

Looks like a pale lager (clear with small head). Smells like an under-attenuated eastern-European pale lager (sweet, buttery, corn). Tastes like an under-attenuated eastern-European pale lager with a shot of grain alcohol poured in. Has basically nothing "Belgian" about it. Is, in a word, crap.

Holmen1 (2302) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2013
0,33 flaske delt med Steven og Willy, som hadde den med hjem fra Spania: stor enighet i panelet, og Steven uttrykte seg kort og konsist: "Good heavens, what is this supposed to be?" Høy voltstyrke, men det er også det hele. En ubehagelig sødme gjorde at den ikke kan karakteriseres som lettdrikkelig.

thanatosti (878) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2013
33 cl. can @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Golden with a thin white head. Grainy sweet aroma and taste. Nothinh more than a typical strong pale lager: too sweet, too alcoholic. Strange thing about this one though is that it was not even dirt cheap. What kind of people, besides me ofcourse, buys this kind of expensive crap?

EddyBeer1 (840) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2013
Dorée-ambrée claire, effervescence fine, très peu de mousse. Maltée d’entrée avec trop de sucre (petit goût de miel!), petite amertume en arrière-bouche, alcool beaucoup trop présent. Moins que bof!

fdomig (344) - München, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Aroma is light yeast, slightly hops, little apple. Appearance is yellow with white foam. Taste is sweet and light sour. Has a soft carbonation, medium body, light texture and leaves a light dry mouth feel. Overall OK.

kingstoni (1457) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Can. Clear deep golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of banana essence and yeast. Taste of alcohol and vanilla.

On-tap. Pours golden with a thin head. Very weak sweet and alcoholic aroma. Taste - very sweet with disgusting alcoholic flavors, pretty awful, bitter finish, not balanced. Not good.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2013
Yellow-orange color, but a subtile foamy head. It has an aroma of alcohol which reminds of whiskey. In the taste the alcohol returns firmly, when i noticed it has 10% alcohol. Very nice sweet taste, but almost no palate at all... Oranje-geel kleurig bier, met een bescheiden kraagje. In het aroma is volop de alcohol aanwezig en doet denken aan whiskey. ook in de smaak volop alcohol, toen het mij opviel dat het 10% betreft. Ver een lekkere zoete smaak, maar bijna geen gehemelte.
