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.

ruigo (1091) - PORTUGAL - DEC 8, 2013
Shared a 33cl can from Delheize (Luxembourg). Pours a clear golden colour with thin white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and alcohol. Average carbonation and medium body. Flavour is more sweet than bitter, with some boring vanilla notes. Overall, not bad but probably not to repeat.

tricksta_p (1098) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of sugary malts, alcohol, not much else. Very nasty booziness to it. I expect more from this brewery. This is dangerously close to the trash alcoholic bums buy at supermarkets.

vipinvelp (2176) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2013
Clear golden yellow with lacing white foam head. Aroma is yeast, barley and alcohol. Taste is strong pilsener with alcohol clearly present. (Velp 201311) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2076) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2013
Clear golden body, small white head. Piss, alcohol, dissolvent and bit nail polish remover. Quite horrible.

Pringao_Toribi (246) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
Its like a strong version of a blonde/bruin, with more explosive flavour and aroma, and a bit too alcoholic.

RuneStumo (2183) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2013
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.

ThreeCats (567) - ISRAEL - SEP 10, 2013
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 (2467) - 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 (906) - 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?
