In 1992, Gordon launches Finest Gold, a strong and refined beer with a typically Scottish character, combining the forces of charm and persuasion. Its origins and its strength (10% degrees of alcohol) give it its smooth taste and explosive nature. The taste of this incomparable beer is nevertheless entirely suited to the new demand of its many enthusiasts. Gordon Finest Gold is today available in 33 cl and 50 cl cans.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2007
Yellow-gold beer with a nice white head. Notes of fruitiness in the aroma. Sweet malty flavors. Alcohol present but not to much for a 10% vol alc. Notes of spices and some hop bitterness.

johndoughty (5306) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
Golden and misleading. Strong but not as much as you would expect from a ten percenter. Some bitterness but well balanced with the other flavours. Recommended.

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2007
50 cl can. Not Belgiums finest, thsi beer is similar to other strong blones, but it does not have the seduciveness of, say, a Duvel - the alcohol shines through a bit too much.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2007
Small white head. Amber body. Milky spicy mild aroma with fruity notes. Strong roasty milky fruity taste, quite dry, and yet sweetish. Spicy banana notes, and perhaps a faint touch of wood. Dry, herbal aftertaste. Mild, smooth, rounded mouthfeel. Quite nice. The alcohol isnt very noticeable. Dangerously drinkable. (0.33l bottle from Dorstvlegel.)

Jerre (3275) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl @ home. Dark golden color, with a thick creamy white head. Aroma alcohol, and light malt. Medium body. Taste in mouth, malts, very little coriander and sweet malt, with some warming alcohol, and light peppery.

fonefan (47622) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle. Clear medium amber orange color with a large frothy / creamy excellent lacing mostly lasting off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy yeasty, moderate malty, toasted, light alcoholic, notes cardboard / paper. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Embrouille (2844) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 It pours a golden beer with a rather big chaotic head. Notes of alcohol, bubblegum, caramel and glue. Rather malty, some marzipan and banana elements. Enjoyable in a strange way. The taste is worse: Pretty cloying, alcoholic and metallic. A pretty strong beer! Its sweet and has some good hop character, I must admit. An alcoholic dry finish follows with notes of brown sugar. Extremley syrupy. Not that bad after all... But far from being truly enjoyable. Notice: This beer isnt easy drinkable at all! A nice sipping beer...

Had itbefore already from bottle and draft. Now once more from draught. A very nice and good tasting strong beer. Something sweet and fruity in the taste

oh6gdx (26415) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2007
Canned. golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is alcohol, sweet malts as well as some spices. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts and some fruit. The fun thing is, if I wouldnt know its a belgian strong ale, I would go for the fact its a very wellbalanced ESL or ML, I still think its a wellbalanced thing, even though I would wait for a bit more both aroma and flavourwise from a Belgian Strong Ale.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2007
Can in Belgium. Strong and sweetly alcoholic. Perhaps marginally more refined than your average tramp juice this is still rubbish.
