BigMomma (249) - Leuven, - JUL 11, 2012
Details: 50cl can
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.

eduardovl (1475) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 25, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2017 500ml can server in an ordinary glass. Pours a deep amber color forming a medium and creamy beige head. Low persistence. Nose is sweet and caramel. Very grainy with some grassy hops. Sweet upfront taste. Actually, sweet in overall. Strong notes of caramel malts and toffee. Light grassy hoppy bitterness. Heavy body. Average carbonation. Caramel in the afteraste. Medium to low drinkability. Too sweet and booze. No big deal as expected.

50cl can. Pours clear dark amber with a lasting, small, off-white head. The aroma contains caramel, sugar, some nuts and red fruits, and alcohol. It tastes heavy to medium sweet and light bitter, with an astringent, bit dry, alcoholic finish (the typical ’Gordon’s Finish’ which I’ve already encountered in the Finest series). Surprisingly light body for 8,4%, watery/sticky texture, fizzy carbonation. Not as bad-tasting as some other beers by Gordon, but never likeable. Wonder what those "finest ingredients" are...

roldano (157) - - FEB 13, 2017
Espuma marrón claro / beige que permanece como una fina capa, color rojizo bastante translucido donde se aprecian las burbujas brotar, aroma ligero en nariz, sabor con notas dulces que finalizan en amargas y puntos picantes.

Grumbo (3980) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2016
On tap at a restaurant in Genoa. Pours red/brown with a small off white head. Aroma is spiced, malt, and caramel. Medium sweetness, somewhat tart bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture. Heavy going really and seems to punch above its abv - would perhaps work better on a park bench than with good Italian food...

Hamirubi (595) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2016
50cl can (6 II 2016). Perfect amber brew, one for the road. Pretty shabby, with a brownish look and easy spotted yeast nose. The flavours are medium sweet and bitter, with thin texture of modest carbonation and likewise body. There are keen notes of iron and fruits - an odd combo for sure. Although the alcohol volume is quite high (8.4% ABV), the mouthfeel is full of malts and water! A pitty. The taste still is long lasting and fine enough.

erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2016
I’m not going to say this is a great beer, but put a craft name on it and say how you recreated a classic euro style and scores would have been different... Having said that, it’s too filtered for its own good. The red copper looks are okay, but the taste is flat and alcohol is way too prominent. On the other hand, it has a certain herbal tea appeal that I did oddly appealing. And it drinks surprisingly well. As said, not a good beer, but easy to bash just for its alcoholic heritage. (33cl bottle from Comptoir Ferme de Mont-Saint-Jean)

Boxereddy (485) - BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2015
Dieprood bier met een grote lichtbruine schuimkraag. De geur is zeer zoet met noten van alcohol, bessen en citrus. De smaak is zoet met sterke accenten van alcohol en hints van metalen. Zoet mondgevoel maar wel een droge afdronk.

thanatosti (1793) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
50 cl. can @ home, bought @ Intermarché, Givet. Clear brownish red with an off-white head. Caramel aroma. Sweet taste. Cheap tasting and simple but not horrible.
