Gordon Scotch Ale was born in the limpid highlands among isolated lochs and haunting Scottish castles. This brown beer, reminiscent of a dark ruby, is full of contrast - both strong and smooth. Its creamy head is delectation for the palate. This unique nectar can also be discovered under the name of Douglas Scotch Ale. Has been renamed ’Finest Scotch’ in 2006.
Note: ABV at some point from 8.6% to 8%.

Beer4000 (4946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark amber body with a small off-white head. Quite strong aroma of roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar and dry fruit. Flavor is sticky sweet malt, roasted caramel, dry fruit, syrup, dry fruit and some sharp bitterness towards the end. Full body and sweet malty aftertaste. To sweet and sticky for me and a bit too boozy as well.

lello4ever (203) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Una scotch dal colore ambra scuro, netto sapore dolce di malto e caramello. 8% che si sentono tutti. Forse è la migliore delle Gordon, buon livello di schiuma, buona la corposità, molto bevibile con una predominanza di malti ma anche una punta di amaro a controbilanciare.

Une jolie mousse blanc cassé, une couleur ambrée. C’est une bière forte en alcool mais tout en douceur sur le caramel, quasiment aucune amertume. 33 Cl chez La Vignery
