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.

Voivod (304) - Como, - MAY 11, 2003
Golden colour, decent head, not really lasting. Malty aroma. the flavour is malty too, dominated by sweetness (caramel and vanilla). The aftertaste is quite hoppy and bitter and unfortunately very alcoholic. This could have been a great beer with a better balancement...

Salmaneser (50) - BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Clear golden yellow beer with white head. Grassy, herbal aroma, with the sweet smell of caramel and honey. Taste starts off sweet, with a bit of a watery palate. Afterwards, the bitterness joins in and the palate gets lively. Decent beer.
