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%.

Got it from a Irish pıub in Fiesole. Nice aromatic scents and caramell, malty taste. Medium head nice balanced quite hoppy taste but not too much hoppy. Very nice ale.

drpimento (3634) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Got this bottle from a shop on the corner across from the train station in Schaerbeek, Brussels, Belgium. Think there’s something wrong there as a lot of the beers have off flavors and aromas - even in cans. No idea why. Anyway, this one poured with an excellent head and lots of lace. Great mahoganey color. Aroma has definite skunk. After being open for a bit fades. Good scotch ale, but a little oversweet in a neutral way. Very nice body. If it weren’t for the skunk thing, good beer. Scotch ale finish, a bit warming. Little too sweet and strong for a session.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
Dégusté a l’autre oeil avec Agaguk et Pyrozoid. Apparence cuivré foncé claire avec un beau collet beige mousseux. Aromes de vin rouge, cassis, liege, cassonade et pomme rouge. Bonne amertume prononcé au debut qui se marie tres bien au coté sucré. Palait liquoreux avec une belle finition sec. Gout de caramel, cassonade et le liege reviens.
