COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gordon Scotch Ale was born in the limpid highlands among isolated lochs and haunting Scottish castles. This brown beer, reminiscent of a dark ruby, is full of contrast - both strong and smooth. Its creamy head is delectation for the palate. This unique nectar can also be discovered under the name of Douglas Scotch Ale. Has been renamed Finest Scotch in 2006.
Note: ABV at some point from 8.6% to 8%.

Mais que a aprendia, ao servi-lo há uma explosão de aromas. Sua cor marrom acobreada, opaca, com creme bege baixo e persistente que ganhe um renda linda no copo. Formado por bolhas assimétricas e carbonatação média para alta. Aroma defumado Apresentou coloração avermelhada, quase chegando ao cobre e com pouca translucidez. Acima do líquido se forma uma creme de coloração bege, formação abundante e uma duração razoável. Aromas de malte dominam (malte whisky e defumado) caramelo, Frutas secas. Na boca textura licorosa, dulçor e malte bem presente justificando o alto corpo, picante e amargor suave (floral) e bem inserido se acentuando no retrogosto . Apesar de esperado, notas de madeira são suaves. Uma cerveja que impressiona. Garrafa de 330ml - Luxemburgo, Luxemburgo (3/4/2016) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, picked up in a Brussels supermarket. Clear, dark copper colour. Lasting, light tan head. Nose is nutty. Some squidgy malts. Toffee. Burnt caramel. Booze and yeast. Taste is caramel sweet. Vine fruit dryness. Some burnt bitterness. Bit of booze on the palate. Not overly smooth. Dryish finish.
