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.

Intense golden hue. White head, swiftly disappearing. Aroma is porridge, iron, honey and wheat flour. Powerful sweet start. Full body. Bitter ending. Long sweet aftertaste with hints of honey. Very interesting.

This is a pretty good beer, I thought. Couldn’t tell it was 10%. I thought it seemed like a light triple. However, I did have this near the end of a very large tasting, where scores generally go up.

Had itbefore already from bottle and draft. Now once more from draught. A very nice and good tasting strong beer. Something sweet and fruity in the taste

Een enorm lekker bier met een rijke, volle smaak zoals de meeste bieren van Gordon.

MADpalace (219) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2010
Dit is een heel sterk biertje (smaak) waarbij je ook nog voelt dat het een sterk alcoholpercentage bevat. Het drinkt echter toch redelijk makkelijk weg omdat het een ietswat zachte/milde afdronk heeft.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2002
I had one brewed by Palm, Belgium. Banana aroma. Golden/orange colour. White rocky head. Sweet, bit syrupy, alcohol bitterness, nice but not interesting. Long sticky finish with alcohol burning.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2002
Nice mix of hops and malt in scent. Golden amber, big fluffy head. Strong alcohol at first, with some bitterness and sweetness. Typical Belgian Strong Ale tingle. Complex. Very good.

Bright blond beer with a white head, little carbonation. Taste is sweet, fruity, bitter, honey and wheat. Sweet alcohol aftertaste, very tasty strong beer.
