Can @ AD Delhaize, Brussels.
Nice, clear amber with a small, frothy, bubbly, white head. Aroma has mild caramel, viniousness, some red fruits. Medium to low carbonation, fair light mouthfeel. Flavour has mild sugary caramel, but really nothing more. Yeah! I want more!

Can. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours a clear, lightly red, brown. A fizzy off white head on top. Lacing in large blotches on my glass. Aroma is very sweet, some caramel, a little toffee and lots of alcohol. Light carbonation - making it rather oily. Quite dry flavour, very sweet, notes of strawberry, but very overwhelming alcoholic in the end.

Koelschtrinker (19399) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Sffige slicher Beginn, spter trockener und fruchtig, zudem etwas alkoholisch, weiter aber s. Zunehmend knstlich, was in Teilen auch dem Alkohol zuzuschreiben ist. Nun laffer, auf den Aromen zum Beginn wird sich anscheinend ausgeruht diese reichen aber bei Weitem nicht.Daher entsteht ein langweiliges, zum Ende hellmalziges Bier. Naja...10/7/8/8/5/7

77ships (9215) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2011
[email protected]: clear, light amber colour with a red hue to it, tastes of medicinal alcohol, the cheapest of cheap whiskey plus lots of sweetness from caramel, sugar, nuts, rotting berries, wet moss, this is how I imagine what the slightly better moonshine taste like or perfume, oily texture, very bad overall

2004 [email protected], consumed in Feb. 2011: ouch, this clearly shouldnt have been aged, I assume no one has simple ever ordered this before, looks kind of light, watery orange, hints of purple if you hold it up to the light, according to the bottle it should have a purple hue, tiny white head, smells like chlorine, swimming pool water basically, appallingly enough it also tastes like swimming pool water, chlorine, watery, with hint of caramel, malt & sugar at the very end, disturbing & weird, this really shouldnt have been aged, I cannot imagine that this is how it was ever supposed to taste, very watery, seriously everything about this beer screams swimming pool water

Actually drinkable. I was not expecting too much from this beer, but it turned out alright-ish.

Bottle. Dull brown with red and a thin head. Aromas are caramel with red berries and earthy hops. Very peppery alcohol. Flavours are sweet grain with sugar and caramel. Fruity with alcohol on the finish. Average.

suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a light, light red. Weird for something that bills itself as a Red. And plasters tartan all over its can. Fast fading head, with no lacing. Slightly malty. Slightly. Maybe I smell hops? Maybe. If I didnt try hard to smell something I wouldnt have smelled anything. Little malty up front. Floral hops out back. Might not even be hops. They may have actually thrown flowers in here. Little sweetness that sticks around on your lips for a while. Like after eating a lollipop. Sticky and thin. I could drink maybe one of these at a sitting. Maybe, but Im having a tough time choking this 500ml can down right now.

Ah, nothing better than a sleazy can of Gordons on a saturday night! Indeed, I have not been too impressed with the other high-alcohol version of this Gordons brew. This one is, in theory, "softer" at only 8.4% alcohol. Thus, we have a beer that pours with a flat amber body and huge head. The aroma is cherries and barley, a bit smooth, a bit not. Taste is a soft mix of amber ales and lagers.... cherry hints and some malts in the midst of an extremely watery finish. This is better than the other Gordon beers, but still nothing to cry home about.
