Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Can, consumed at Nic and Anna’s leaving party, Merton, Oxon, Saturday 12th July 2014 Drinking this straight from the can at about 2-3am when if truth be told I didn’t need anymore, so no idea on colour. Sweet malty with a fair bit of toffee and caramel. The can gives it a very industrial look which fits rather well. A6 A3 T5 P3 Ov10 2.7

Dark reddish color, with white persistent head. Soft notes of red fruits and sweet malts. Finishes with a spicy alcoholic sensation. The best of the Gordon Finest series.

mmahut (909) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 13, 2014
Can. Clear dark red body with no head. Aroma has alcohol with fuzzy caramel notes. Taste has medium earthy bitterness with very high caramel sweetness, pretty unbalanced. Like a strong eurobeer. Body is full, low carbonation.

davidtjm (288) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2014
Dark amber pour with a foamy head, sour lambic aroma. Taste is very sweet, fading finish. Just about drinkable

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Rotbraunes Bier mit wenig Schaum. Malzig-getreidiger Duft mit gewisser Würze. Im Geschmack gar nicht so schlimm wie befürchtet, der Alkohol ist gut versteckt hinter reichlich Karamellmalz mit fruchtiger Würze. Ok ohne Begeisterungseffekt.

Birra con carattere. Buona sorso dopo sorso. Gusto forte e pieno. Amara quanto basta e ben equilibrata.
