skortila (4801) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2005
Aroma of hops, caramel malts and fruits (abrikot). Clear, dark red-brown coloured with a lasting, off-white-brown head. Taste is sweet, fruity (abrikot), malty. Alcohol present, still quite thin and dry. For a gordon not really bad.

Canned. Aroma is alcoholic, apples (yes apples..). Amber coloured beer with firm head. Taste is malty and alcoholic. Sweet, bitter amd alcohol. Metallic and sharp palate. This beer is no good... very much no good. Okay it’s better than it’s brother the gold version...

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2005
(Canned, 8.4% ABV, BBE 02/2006) Clear, darkish red-amber color with a small, big-bubbled and mostly fading head. Some toffeeish caramel in the aroma when pouring, but it disappears quickly into mild metallicity and faint toffee and berry hints. Caramely-malty, slightly sweet and roasty, very straightforward flavor. Has some wineous feel, and alcohol is quite clearly present in the finish. Barely medium-bodied - not quite enough for the ABV. It’s actually quite hard to believe that this would be top-fermented. It feels like some Estonian strong, dark lagers.

Sten (695) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2006
Reddish appearance with a small white head. The aroma is sweet and alcoholic. The flavour is sweet, alcoholic and a bit fruity. A very boring beer. (Bottle 33cl 6.6 alcohol % in my version)

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 11, 2007
Bevuta alla spina al John Martin a Busalla; colore rosso scuro, aroma floreale molto pronunciato e simile a quello della Gordon Five (assaggiata ieri sera). Sapore tuttavia un poco più intrigante, dolciastro e con finale scarsamente luppolato, ma non spiacevole sebbene un poco artificioso. Corpo mediamente acquoso, frizzantezza poco pronunciata; buonina...

oh6gdx (22073) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol and some malty and quite hoppy hints too. Flavour is the same. I would have guesses the style for a fruitish Malt Likka, but apparently it’s an ale...

Bottle. Clear reddish amber with off-white head. Aroma - caramel, sweet apples, apricots and candies. Taste - sweet, fruity, caramel, candy, quite clean but alcoholic and slightly medicinal. Light-med bodied, syrupy texture. Drinkable.

Rossa scura con una schiuma poco compatta, gusto che tende al dolce, molto bevibile ma niente di eccezionale.
