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.

Swaroga (1272) - Brussels, - 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.

Pure lager color, all gold and transparent with tiny head. The aroma is malt and lager too. The taste is classic lager with some hints of Belgian base. One can also feel the 10% alcohol! A good lager, maybe too much alcohol to drink it as summer refreshment but still ok.

33cl bottle from ’t Drankenhuys. Clear golden with medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet some acidic bitter tones. Wheat, grain and booze. A very flat and boozy brew.

¡Por fin! Una cerveza belga que me van a tener que regalar para que la vuelva a probar. Lo único destacable son los 10º que tiene que, desafortunadamente, no consiguen ocultarse tras el amargor de la cerveza. Esta cerveza me parece un autentico despropósito. Carece de objetivo. Parece una cerveza de mala taberna a la que le han echado más alcohol de la cuenta. No sirve para comer porque ya el primer trago te hace fruncir el ceño. No sirve para disfrutarla porque no tiene historia que contar. Es como el feo que va al gimnasio y se pone hasta arriba de anabolizantes para tener un cuerpo 10 (oportuna analogía en referencia a la graduación): algo mejora, pero sigue siendo igual de feo. Como he dicho antes, solo si me invitan... y a lo mejor ni eso.

Birra bionda dal colore oro carico e dalla schiuma ricca e persistente. Al primo sorso risulta dolce e piacevole.Proseguendo con la bevuta la gradazione alcolica si fa sentire e risulta stucchevole e fastidiosa. Una gradazione alcolica inferiore l’avrebbe resa sicuramente più bevibile!

kerenmk (2199) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle. BBD 29.11.13, drank 15.2.14. Clear gold with white film. Lager aroma - a little oxidized, some grain and minerals.Bitter, then a sweet kick and booziness. Medium-bodied, smooth, sweetish finish. Could’ve been worse.

Blonde pour with a disappearing head, malt aroma with an unfortunate nail varnish note. Taste is very sweet, again nail varnish with an unpleasant bitter chemical finish
