Gordon Five is a special light beer with a refreshing taste. Delicate and refined, it is in a world of its own thanks to the quality of its ingredients. Pale gold in colour with a 5.5% degree alcohol content, it is thirst-quenching and easy to drink. Gordon Five will convince the most demanding palate.

Shared 20cl on tap. Pours a clear light golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is hay, malts and floral. Average carbonation and light watery body. Taste is metallic and light, more bitter than sweet and dry finish. Overall, a regular lager... And the bartender told me that it was very good. Never trust him again.

Poured a light amber with a small off white ring. Aroma of chemically sweet malt. Medium body, flavour is cloyingly sweet and unbalanced.

On tap at a pub. Average looking lager. Golden color, persistent white head. Somewhat grainy and straight forward lager, average.

77ships (3546) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2014
33 cl. – clear green – bottle @ home. Procured from Carrefour. Pours a clear amber orange with a tiny synthetic white head. Smells like an industrial lager but rawer, touch solvents and superglue mixed with this odd sweetness like watered down cheap candy sugar, I am not feeling it. Taste is bitter, surprisingly some hops here mixed with a watery mess of watered down brown honey and chemicals, sweet grains and caramel. The whole thing is really watery. Despite all of this you still get a light alcohol burn, garbage ingredients I suppose. A total mess, not much of a surprise there. Label at least doesn’t look to bad.

Bottle. Pale piss yellow. Flavour is sweet caramel and some itchy hops. Thin and unacceptably poor.

Super dulde, galleta, caramelo en nariz, malta y miel en boca, un poco empalagosa, alcohol demasiado presente

A lager not very special...a pils like other, a bit stronger and with a light taste at the end

16/VI/13 - 33cl bottle from Carrefour Planet (Oostakker) @ Akke’s place - BB: 25/VII/13 (2013-565)

Clear orange beer, small irregular white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sugary, floral, some honey, bit chemical and smelly. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: little bitter, metallic, some grains, sweet and sugary. Aftertaste: grains, cow fodder, sugary, bit metallic, some banana. Gordon Five did not convince my most demanding palate.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours a clear light amber body with a small white head and massive, alien-looking floaties...is that yeast? Is it moss? Is it the remains of some extra-terresial life form, which the brewers tried to preserve in beer? Damn if I know, but this shit is gross as hell. :-P Aroma is strange sweet caramel and chewing gum notes with hints of wet grass. Taste is cellar must, wet grass, watery sweet caramel. Weird, and/or possibly infected or too old (couldn’t find a best before date). Drain pour, of course.

Bottle from their webshop. Pours clear dark golden with a tiny, white film head. Aroma is sweet, brewing cereal, crystal malts, light grainy. Medium carbonation, very thin and watery. Flavour is sweet, metallic, some maize, sugar. Just bad.
