3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gordon claim to be the original and first christmas beer. Thats bullshit…. But not the beer! It has a sweetish and strong overall taste, accompanied by hints of sandlewood, licorice and coffee. If one takes the lead, it’s the sweet taste of brown sugar. The alcohol is very present, giving a light sparkle in the nose and throat. The finish is bitter sweet and lasts.
