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.

330ml bottle. Clear yellow color. Medium size, white head, stays. Malty, alcohol, farty, sour notes in aroma. Sweet, alcohol, malty taste. Not good. Never again!

330ml (Wines Of Galillee, Tallinn)
Cheesy aroma, a bit of wool, starchy, almond, that white pasty book-binding glue. Wow, what a range of aromas. And that "wow" was nothing compared to the spine-tingling shock that hit me once the liquid had entered my mouth. Jeebus, that’s boozy, scarily so, one of the booziest beers I can remember. Sweetish retronasals, but very soon even the sweetness gets completely obliterated with pure raw booze. Horrible raw acrid bitterness in the finish, it’s disgustingly chemical. Was a nice gold, and had a nice head that was fairly persistent. My god, this was so rough, boozy, and harsh. Jeebus, we’ve still got the 12% one to go. God help us.

suurjuust (2742) - ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2015
Clear gold, medium white head, filmy retention. Sugary, malty nose, toasty notes. Sweet, malty, toasty flavor, finishes with alcohol and malt sweetness. Lingering booze and sugar. Pretty full mouthfeel.

Icedwarf (1160) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2015
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is lichtzoet en sterk. Lijkt wat op een Grolsch kanon of een Gulperner gladiator. Best wel goed te drinken maar niet bijzonder, er zijn verschillende van dit soort bier die vergelijkbaar zijn.

Goudgeel bier met snel zakkende schuimkraag. Honing en hop in de neus. Moutigzoet in de mond met zachte afdronk.

Keg and bottle, several times.
In short: boozy beverage.
Quite unbalanced beer, some harsh mouthfeel. It is really aprreciated by many people i know, mainstream beer drinkers. Average to poor.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde qui tape beaucoup trop sur l’alcool. Sucre candi bien présent aussi. Pas terrible.

VDuquerroux (1132) - Airvault, FRANCE - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear golden orange beer with yellow hues at the bottom of my glass. Medium white head with a medium retention. Good lacing. Herbal aroma, biscuit, fruit, alcohol. Medium warming sweet, light bitter. Full body, thin texture, soft carbonation, sweet caramel finish with a herbal note. Overall, great look, pleasant aroma but a bit too warming. Lack some character.
