33 cl bottle.This one 6.6 % Abv. No yeast in bottom. Reddish amber colour with a rocky but fast disappearing head. Sweet aroma of grain, caramel and malt. Nice flavour of berries and malt, but overall a good beer but not great.

SHIG (3968) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Bottle with a spooky design: Poured a reddish-orange with a off white color head. The aroma was sweet and hints of cinniman to my nose. The flavor was very sweet candy malt with a berry or fruit finish.

Bottle: First off the bottle presentation is awesome and nice to look at, with all the lines as writing in white which brings out the red. Poured a red amber with a thin white head. Fruity sorta cherry aroma. The taste was sweet berry malt flavor, very candy and lasting finish. The best Gordon I have had from the finest series!

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
Can. High fluffy but lasting off-white head. Clear light red body. Light berries aroma. Relatively carbonated with a fair amount of hops bitterness and some dusty notes. Berries are present but the overall impression is bitterness. Short aftertaste.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 25, 2008
Tasting at my place. Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-golden with an OK head. The aroma has notes of malt and apple and the flavour has light notes of malt, apple, candy sugar and light citrus. The finish is dry. Considering the style this is quite nice.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2008
Bottle, thx to fonefan. A clear, amber beer with a small, beige head. Fruity-sweet nose with caramel and a tiny roasted note. Caramel, sweetness and fruits in the flavor, a little alcohol towards the bitterness, and also some bitterness. Medium, silky mouthfeel and a caramel-sweet finish with bitterness. Dangerously quaffable at 8.4% ABV. (080412)

Sammy (9677) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2010
Radek’s choice, at L’autre oeil in Aylmer. A little reddish colour, thought it was a Vienna and was pleasantly surprised by long bitter finish. Decent mouthfeel, drinkability. Would like more in-your-face hops.

Red with white head, gently bitter malty aroma, but sweety taste, a little carbonation, hints of coffee, vanilla and jelly on palate, sweet aftertaste

Diabobale (307) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una amber a bassa fermentazione veramente strong. di colore ambrato carico, schiuma fine e persistente, dai sentori molto caramellati, luppoli mediocri, buona persistenza

Drink cold (8°C) Eye: pours an reddish-brown color with a medium and quickly dissipating white head and high carbonation. Nose: not much other than hops Mouth: sparkly, grapes, prune tart and red berries. Palate: red berries again, black currant even and hops. Overall: very fruity and refreshing beer. You won’t feel the high percentage of alcohol.
