COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong pale lager.
No doubt : men prefer blonds, but Gordon Finest Silver will enchant everybody, men and women, young and old, real connoisseurs or occasional consumers. Gordon Finest Silver is a strong beer (7.7 % alc.vol), yet light in taste, smooth and pleasant. Its refined flavour is the result of a subtle hop-blend. Gordon Finest Silver with its gold blond colour is available in 50 cl cans, as well as in 33 cl long-neck bottles.

BigMomma (223) - Leuven, - JUL 11, 2012
Details: 50cl can.
Tasting notes: Pours a clear yellow color with almost no head. The aroma is quite malty with a slight spicyness, some alcoholic touches. Flavor is malty, sweet and ends fairly dry sweet with a slight bitter spicy finish.
Conclusion: A decent strong lager, the price however is a bit on the high side for the given quality.

Pale yellow blond colour, very sweet and artificial aroma. Medium carbonation. Alcoholic nose. No hops or malts detectable. Bad.

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Das -fast- schon übliche Gordon Einerlei: Goldgelb, Schaum kaum vorhanden und schnell weg, diffuses Süßaroma mit etwas muffig-künstlichem Malz und Bitterhopfen und das ganze schwimmt in Alkohol, dass der Gaumen nach drei Millisekunden bereits betäubt ist. Schlecht, was sons!

jaghana (3500) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - OCT 16, 2013
Can 50cl @Auchan, a clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is sweet and alcoholic like. Aroma is on sweet caramel with corn sugar, near to poor heller bock, still drinkable but nothing more;

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 13, 2013
Canned 0,50L. Charged and solid copper color, poor bubbly presence, escaping head. Moderate malty and alcoholic nose. Medium warm taste, solid mouth with poor cereals and alcoholic final. Too sweetish end.

mile (2738) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Can. Golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweet aroma, caramel and some fruitiness, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty - lightly wheaty and sweet flavor, some caramel and light fruitiness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty - faintly wheaty and sweetish, some caramel and some alcohol. Sweet strong lager with caramel - really nothing special.

MichaelAwesome (2982) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
Ein einfaches, dickes Bier mit einem ordentlichen Bumms. Erinnert in seiner Art und Abgang an Klassiker wie Warka Strong und Co. Etwas hopfig, leicht malzig und voll süßem Alkohol zum Abschluss. Naja...

McTapps (2980) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
Can. This beer was the starter of the evening and it was okay for coming down and relaxing after a hard day. But that’s only because of the high alcohol content and not due to some nice taste or whatever. It pours out of the can in a clear deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of strong hops and malt. Taste of dull and dusty hops, light strong malt, hay, red apples, mild fruits and clover. Not easy and not that easy to drink, but not worse than expected.

thanatosti (820) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2013
50 cl. can @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Golden with a white head. Light grainy sweet smell with some hops. Taste is regular strong pale lager: grainy and sweet. Boring and bad.

SilkTork (5121) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2013
500ml can from Carrefour, Namur, Belgium. I find cans of cheap strong lager quite irresistible. This has the John Martin Gordon brand, so there’s a whiskey aroma to the beer to set it apart from other strong lagers, but it tastes like some artificial flavouring has been added. The ingredients listed are straightforward - water, malt, sugar and hops, but there’s definitely whiskey flavouring added. A glowing pale gold colour. Quite drinkable, but the plastic notes and the plastic feel are mildly off-putting.
