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%.

On tap. Poor creamy head, not persistent. Dark amber with coppery shadows. Not very intensive and persistent.Chestnut honey, raisin, dry plums, caramel, toffee ato nose. Medium body. The sweet in the entry is balanced with a bitter lingering in the mouth.The alcohol is a bit harsh in the throat. Balanced and armonic
