Clear dark red with fading white head. Aroma is a mixture of other Gordons and some red fruit. Taste is rather sweet with red fruits, like a soda drink has been added. Dry mouthfeel. Different from the other Gordons, but still as bad. Grzesiek79 (4294) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Mega obrzydliwe piwo, spodziewałem się zupełnie czegoś innego po Gordonie. Miedziano czerwony kolor zupełnie bez piany, a co najbardziej denerwuje i przeszkadza to zbytnia słodkość i etanol dominujący wszędzie: w zapachu i smaku przedewszystkim. Mocno alkocholowy posmak co mnie odrzuca totalnie kraddel (8074) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2012

330ml bottle. Pours a dark reddy brown with a thin head. Aroma is grassy, skunky and sweet, caramel malt. Taste is sweet toffee to start, with a raisin finish and a skunky, grassy aftertaste. note666 (1300) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2012

Tasting notes: Pours a dark amber to red color and almost no head.
Gentle aroma of sweet caramel. The flavor is sweet, caramel, malty and ends into a dry sweet slight bitter finish with some lingering caramel notes and a slight floral touch.
Conclusion: Decent, quite flavorfull beer with a good drinkability.
Una delle prime rosse che ho amato, non eccezionale ma una buona birra per ogni occasione vipinvelp (4424) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2012
Clear redish amber with small foam head. Not to much aroma, some caramel, sweet. Taste is like a watery brune, the alcohol is compensating. (Velp, 201205) sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2012
50cl can. Love me concert beers on a parking lot, refined flavours?
Couleur rousse, col beige/blanc.
Le tout reste très doux avec ce relent de faux sucre E150 bien indiqué, et ce profile cerise industrielle. Note de grains et caramel avec un fini dans les normes de houblons nobles laissant ce profile typique métallique.
Je donne le bénéfice du doute, la moins mauvaise de la série, mais ça reste de la grosse production avec un publique bien ciblé, genre les dehors de la gare centrale de Bxls. BlackHaddock (7312) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
December 2006 review from BA: I bought this can from a Night Shop in Brussels, as I staggered back to my hotel after an evening of beer tasting. Thank God I didn’t drink it that night, or my head would have exploded. There would have been blood all over the bathroom mirror and all sorts of problems with getting my body home etc.
The 8.4% alcohol takes over this drink completely.
It looked very good, poured into my Gordon’s Thistle glass. not really red, more a copper/amber colour, but bright and clean looking.
Caramel and yeast, no other aroma.
Strange taste, not an Irish Red, nor a Belgian Red, more like a dark lager, sweet, but also a dryness which takes away the flavour of malts and hops.
A battle between the sweet and dryness is not won by either side and the aftertaste just goes.
I would rather have two tasty 4.2% beers than this alcohol laden brew, but as a one off, not a bad beer.
