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.sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2005

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 it’s better than it’s brother the gold version...
(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. It’s actually quite hard to believe that this would be top-fermented. It feels like some Estonian strong, dark lagers. Sten (755) - 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 più intrigante, dolciastro e con finale scarsamente luppolato, ma non spiacevole sebbene un poco artificioso. Corpo mediamente acquoso, frizzantezza poco pronunciata; buonina... oh6gdx (26487) - 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 it’s an ale...

50 cL can. Pours clear orange to amber with a collapsing light brown head. Light spiced to herbal aroma, mild malt note and light alcohol note in addition. Flavour is light spiced towards perfumed and sweet. Light fruity too. Ends light alcohol warming spiced. leaparsons (10712) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2011
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. Koelschtrinker (21318) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Süffige süßlicher Beginn, später trockener und fruchtig, zudem etwas alkoholisch, weiter aber süß. Zunehmend künstlich, 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
