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%.

TrefwoordPunk (1098) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a brownish red with a yellowish white head and a sweet, nutty aroma that reminds me of chocolate. The mouthfeel is creamy, oily and the taste is sweet, with notes of caramel, milk chocolate, brown sugar, nuts, porto, alcohol, butterscotch and some malts. The finish is slightly bitter. A nice brew

Clear brown beer with a medium baige light brown head. Aroma holds notes of toffee, chocolate, suger, alchohol and bourbon, really really delicious. Sweet malty and sugery flavor very well backed up by the alchohol and some bitter berries. Great beer.
