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.

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.

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Can from tiny 24/7 kiosk/newsstand/beer/liquor store in Brussels, consumed on an empty street (in proper glassware, purchased at the very same store - only in Brussels is this kinda thing possible!) around 03 in the morning. Street ratings FTW! :-D Pours a clear deep golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is maize, marzipan, sugar and hints of pale malts. Taste is sticky sweet maize and sugar tones and hints of pale malts, with hints of resinous grass in the back. Oily palate, medium carbonation. Not too awful actually, but still quite far from good.

Swaroga (1317) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours golden with small white head that quickly disappears. Nose : booze, caramel malts, butter bread toast. Sip : oily and smooth. Decent carbonation. Sweet and cloying. Very malty and seams they forgot to hop it more generously for more balance. The beer is more for the booze and I must admit, I feel already somehow tipsy after couple of sips. That would be, I hope, the last time I drink it.

i remember this. the cheapest per unit alcohol on the shelf. was rather different to the other lager rubbish on sale, but not sure if better. very sweet, malty and alcoholic. trashy stuff anyway.

Bozo_skeleton (485) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 11, 2013
Elle est forte et ca se sent ! Blonde à la robe paille et au col sympa qui laisse une pellicule de mousse sur le breuvage. Aromes legers de caramel et de pain grillé. Un peu trop sucrée. Elle est bonne mais elle tape avec ses 10% et ça passe pas inaperçu !

Golden beer with a high and long head. Not very strong aromas. Sweet notes mainly from yeast: banana, apple . In mouth is sweet, médium bodied and warm. Alcohol is clearly perceived, not pleasant for me. Beautiful look but disappointing aroma intensity. In some aspects it remember a white wine (aromas and alcohol). I must say that it was served too cold for the style. Filip

Przecietne i mocny odor etanolu ktory mi przeszkadza. dominuje zarowno w smaku jak i zapachu. Dla mnie to strong lager słodki, slodki i alkocholowy. Odrzuca mnie na mile. Chyba nawet polowy nie wypilem.
