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.

I always have this one draught from keg, so maybe the experience differs a bit. Pours a dark bronze-orange liquid, with a big and dense fluffy head that collapses quickly. Flavour is malty and sugary, with a dry and bitter finnish that does little to hide the alcohol.

susonagger (200) - spain, - AUG 7, 2016
Excelente cerveza rubia fuerte de tonos sedosos y generosos. Su sabor amargo es armonizado por un volumen alcohólico importante, asistido a su vez por las maltas claras, que le aportan su sabor aterciopelado, con una caricia sabrosa en su conclusión.

On tap. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma compatta ha una discreta resistenza. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La carbonazione è praticamente piatta. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è strutturato ma duttile. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è godereccio. Le sensazioni boccali finali inducono a bevuta compulsiva. Il finale è lungo, secco, pulito e complesso. Il retrogusto è intenso. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, miele, pane, cereali, resina, vaniglia, whisky, torbato e tannico.

Burk, brygge. Gyllengul klar kulör. Plåtig doft med lite äpplemos och ljust bröd. Spritig smak med lätt örtiga toner.

KoNrRiI (1229) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2016
0.33 can. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, water, and damp. Taste is also primarily marked with pale malts, sweet and a tad spicy - nonetheless mediocre. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and relatively soft. Overall this is a subpar brew.

BlueGaljoen (123) - FRANCE - MAY 14, 2016
Joli couleur jaune très franche. Sans être une mauvaise bière, elle n’amène rien de spécial. Aucune subtilité mais pas non plus de points rédhibitoires. Trop d’alcool pour ce type de bière.

En øl der ikke smager af sprit, men har spark Meget frutgagtig i det, smager lidt mild og blød. Meget sødlig i eftersmagen.
