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.

Swaroga's rating

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, - MAY 16, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours golden with small white head that quickly disappears. Nose : booze, caramel malts, butter bread toast. Sip : oily and smooth. Decent carbonation. Sweet and cloying. Very malty and seams they forgot to hop it more generously for more balance. The beer is more for the booze and I must admit, I feel already somehow tipsy after couple of sips. That would be, I hope, the last time I drink it.

nathanvc (391) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2017
Pours clear and fizzing with a collapsing, off-white head. The weak aroma contains corn, maize, lots of sugar, cardboard and alcohol. It tastes medium to heavy sweet which becomes cloying in the end. Almost no sweetness our sourness detectable. The alcohol burns though I expected it to do so even more, whilst I wouldnt say this is 10%. Medium long finish, light body, soft carbonation, oily/sticky texture. Alcoholics delight; avoidable!

bartlebier (3929) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2017
33cl bb03/2017 (...), BLsampler 04/2017. - Bref: sugar-boosted Cointreau runnings, the discerning European bridgedwellers canned booster of choice and still a classy step up from most US malt liquor thanks to generic Belgian coriander broth or the like - Drinkability among the heated malt fumes is sheer evil. In Belgium also handily available in throwaway cans.

Espuma blanquecina que se disipa, color dorado transparente con apenas burbujas brotando, aroma ligeramente dulce en nariz, sabor potente.

Pours flat and amber, could be any generic lager even in a chalice. Smells of caramel, butterscotch and alcohol. Tastes sweet caramel developing into a long bitter alcohol finish. Grew on me throughout the bottle, doesnt hide its strength.

Ysok02 (1450) - Mons, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2016
Robe blonde, reflets dors, mousse crmeuse. Nez sur le houblon, le caramel, le malt. Bouche ronde, onctueuse, mais milieu de bouche creux et mou avec une finale doucereuse. A oublier.

Ferris (14786) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle - Sweet pale malts and boozy notes. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet and some fruity notes, touch of bitterness and booze. Not a fan.

VueltaBirrista (98) - Murcia, SPAIN - NOV 4, 2016
Aroma dulce a miel y licor. Entra dulce y licorosa durante unos segundos, pero al rato se torna amarga, sensacin que va creciendo en boca hasta convertirse en retrogusto algo seco y metlico. Muy carbonatada.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2016
- helle durchsichtige gold-gelbe Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Honig, Karamell und etwas sem Sherry - ausgewogene Carbonisierung - im Antrunk wird man erst einmal von der Se regelrecht erschlagen - der stark schmeckbare erhhte Alkoholgehalt bringt ein wrmendes Element ins Spiel - leider kommt nichts weiteres mehr hinzu, Hopfenbitternis o. . ist kaum wahrnehmbar Fazit: Ein seltsam ses Getrnk, ohne jegliche Hopfenbeigabe

klukas (248) - Rijeka, CROATIA - OCT 1, 2016
Enjoyed: On tap. Appearance: Clear deep golden colour, with rich white foam. Aroma: A hint of alcohol. Palate: Medium to full body, low carbonation. Taste: Sweet than bitter and then again sweet/bitter aftertaste; hint of alcohol. Overall impression: Pleasant, drinkable.
