COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%.

Dla mnie to niezbyt udane piwo. Nawiazujace do szkockich ale produkowane w Belgii a do tego jest mocnym angielskim Ale. Przedziwna kombinacja. Piana ok. Spora i nawet trwala. Barwa ciemno bursztynowa i rubinowa. Spore nagazowanie. W smaku najpierw uderza alkohol przeszkadzajacy mi, wyraznie odczuwalny i zbyt sporo karmelowego slodu.
