Eructoblaster (4098) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Can - 500ml. Limpid amber body with average carbonation and a thin off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with spicy hints. Taste carries some fruity notes. It is rather bland and leaves a bad alcohol aftertaste.

skortila (5660) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2005
Aroma of hops, caramel malts and fruits (abrikot). Clear, dark red-brown coloured with a lasting, off-white-brown head. Taste is sweet, fruity (abrikot), malty. Alcohol present, still quite thin and dry. For a gordon not really bad.
Earlier Rating: 7/20/2004 Total Score: 1.5
Canned. Aroma is alcoholic, apples (yes apples..). Amber coloured beer with firm head. Taste is malty and alcoholic. Sweet, bitter amd alcohol. Metallic and sharp palate. This beer is no good... very much no good. Okay its better than its brother the gold version...

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2005
(Canned, 8.4% ABV, BBE 02/2006) Clear, darkish red-amber color with a small, big-bubbled and mostly fading head. Some toffeeish caramel in the aroma when pouring, but it disappears quickly into mild metallicity and faint toffee and berry hints. Caramely-malty, slightly sweet and roasty, very straightforward flavor. Has some wineous feel, and alcohol is quite clearly present in the finish. Barely medium-bodied - not quite enough for the ABV. Its actually quite hard to believe that this would be top-fermented. It feels like some Estonian strong, dark lagers.

Sten (751) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2006
Reddish appearance with a small white head. The aroma is sweet and alcoholic. The flavour is sweet, alcoholic and a bit fruity. A very boring beer. (Bottle 33cl 6.6 alcohol % in my version)

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 11, 2007
Bevuta alla spina al John Martin a Busalla; colore rosso scuro, aroma floreale molto pronunciato e simile a quello della Gordon Five (assaggiata ieri sera). Sapore tuttavia un poco pi intrigante, dolciastro e con finale scarsamente luppolato, ma non spiacevole sebbene un poco artificioso. Corpo mediamente acquoso, frizzantezza poco pronunciata; buonina...

oh6gdx (26412) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2007
Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol and some malty and quite hoppy hints too. Flavour is the same. I would have guesses the style for a fruitish Malt Likka, but apparently its an ale...
