3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brownish colour and a little muddy to look at, with a fairly low tan head. Aroma is generally malty; certainly lacks and of the refined toffee or peaty notes of a true scotch ale. The flavour is richly malty with some warmth from alcohol; well balanced and pleasant but once again a purist would say not a scotch ale.
Enjoyable drink that stands well amongst a list of typical Begian beers (some of these "scotch ales" are appearing in Belgian pubs)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brownish-ruby beer with a thin bubbly head. Light fruit and toffee in the scent. A slight sourness there too. Flavour is absolutely delicious. A tangy fruit hit on the tongue as it enters the mouth, mellows into smooth, malty caramel. Leaves a lingering, flowery if slightly sickly aftertaste. It’s a sipper but it’s really good.

A Belgian classic, this. Quite a lot of taste, but a bit too sweet and the finish is slightly watery. Still worthwhile, though. The artwork hasn’t improved over the years.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
