Pours a clear golden color with a white head that fades away and leaves a headless beer. Alcol in aroma.

Theydon_Bois (14326) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Can, picked up from a petrol station on the N6 outside of Brussels, boosted in the passengar seat of Rilesters car from a paper cup, 21/11/15. Clear golden with a decent egg shell white covering. Nose is grain, malt, booze, hint of caramel, light pish, bready malt, fruit rinds. Taste comprises grain, semi sweet malt, harsh booze tones, raw alcohol. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close steeped in booze. A touch harsh but ultimately good boost juice.

Bottled 330ml (from BBF, BB 11/2016)
Clear amber-golden color, small white head. Aroma is skunky and grassy with notes of cardboard. Medium-bodied. Green apple, harsh alcohol, like C-grade vodka flavor, some paper. Lacks totally finest Belgian yeast flavors. Booze bomb.

jamaty (1547) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada anaranjada y sin apenas espuma. El aroma es alcohol. Poco mŠs. Y en boca es un aguardiente con sabor a malta, no mucho mas. Mala.

Rubin77 (326) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 18, 2015
Foam: with almost no head. Colour: clear golden colour. Aroma: fruity and malty, alcohol. Taste: malty, fruity, some metallic tones, a lot of alcohol, bitterness is also present, hard to say more, donīt try it, I just want to know what kind of beer are there still drinking strange individuals here in Bruxelles, it really warms up, reminds me similar Amsterdam Maximator which is malt liquor too, but in this case Gordon is much better.

Icedwarf (926) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en sterk, toffee en fruit, ietwat banaan en sinaasappel. Smaak blijft lang hangen. Lijkt erop dat het percentage belangrijker is dan de smaak. Niet echt bijzonder.

330ml bottle (Wines of Galillee, Tallinn) - shared by that ubersadist Marduk!
Even before opening, the green glass bottle gave me warning signs, no sign of beer inside it, so itís clearly pale. -1 because of the paleness of the glass, this is not produced and packaged in order to survive storage. Even before pouring, the smell from the bottle was a horrific limey strong lager aroma. After pouring itís a total boozy horror, and again strong-lagery corniness. Taste is tongue-driblingly disgusting. After I got this shit on my tongue, I no longer wanted my tongue in my mouth. Rough, chemical, boozy. And by boozy, I mean itís even spirit-like, itís actually hot. This is a truly horrific brew, I donít think Iíve ever had a strong belgian so bad. Anyone who gave this more than 2.0 is now immediately out of my respect list - you know nothing about beer. No more than "Anthony Martin" do at any rate. Ugh, and the nasty limeyness never leaves. One of the worst lagers that wasnít a beermix Iíve ever had. Is this a beermix of shitty lager and methanol? Cnaít tpe, goinh bl;imd
