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 (1015) - 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

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - JAN 18, 2009
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.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2008
VRBT. Medium amber. Little aroma, and I literally soaked my nose in it. Flavor is butterscotch accented malt, and not much else. Decent though. I wanted a bit more body.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - NOV 16, 2008
Davvero notevole, sicuramente la migliore Gordon assaggiata (le altre sono veramente qualcosa di disonorevole); ha aroma dolce e pieno, di frutta secca, sapore molto dolce per con una sua complessit e un buon calore alcolico che per non sopravanza mai sul resto. Alla spina al Blackwood di Napoli.

A dark amber ale with a thin offwhite head. Apleasant caramel aroma, non-descript. In mouth, a peaty malt, oily mouthfeel, light licorice, not bad but not what I expected. Medium bodied. Bottle at De Bekeerde Suster, Amsterdam, Nov. 2006, 3.90 Euro.
