   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
BigMomma (223) - Leuven, - JUL 12, 2012
Details: 50cl can.
Tasting notes: Pours a clear golden color with a tiny white head that fades away and leaves a headless beer. Aroma is sweet but almost not apparent. The flavor consists mainly of a slight sweetness, maybe some malts but in the end an alcoholic metal finish that ends dry but leaves some sticky sweetness in your mouth. Medium body, too few carbonisation in my opinion.
Conclusion: Quite a dissapointment. From al the ’Gorden Finest’ beers I’ve had this one has the least flavor but the most alcohol. This makes me conclude that this beer is interesting if you want to get drunk easily, however considering the high price there are better alternatives.

jamaty (1246) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Dorada anaranjada y sin apenas espuma. El aroma es alcohol. Poco más. Y en boca es un aguardiente con sabor a malta, no mucho mas. Mala.

Rubin77 (140) - 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, don´t 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.

lello4ever (249) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
L’unica cosa che veramente si ricorda di questa lager č l’alcool, che al primo sorso di colpisce visti i ben 12%. Per il resto non ha molto da dire.

Icedwarf (724) - 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.

Light amber with samll white head. Malt aroma. Strong lager bitterness, unfortunately with alcohol notes. Not worth its name....

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 it’s 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 it’s 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 it’s even spirit-like, it’s actually hot. This is a truly horrific brew, I don’t think I’ve 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 wasn’t a beermix I’ve ever had. Is this a beermix of shitty lager and methanol? Cna’t tpe, goinh bl;imd

suurjuust (1805) - ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2014
Clear orange golden, small white head that quickly dissipates. Weak nose of malts, perfume and sweetness. Flavor is metallic-perfumey notes and malt, sweetness, spice. Peppery-alcoholic finish. Alcohol, pepper and metallic notes linger. Mouthfeel is almost dense, oily to dry. Alcohol steamrolls the finish. Almost out of the hobofuel league, but not quite. "Finest Platinum" feels like trolling at this point.

Boxereddy (201) - BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2014
Helder goudkleurig bier met snelzakkende schuimkraag. Neus van alcohol en oud fruit. Sterke smaak van alcohol en suiker snoep / caramel. Zoete afdronk met sterk alcoholische toets. Een echte moutlikeur!
