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.

Biroholik (1173) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Kolor: Rubinowy. Bardzo lubię ten kolor. Piwo w pełni klarowne.
Piana: Przybrudzona biel, szybko opada , drobne pęcherzyki. Perfekcyjnie oplata ścianki kielicha.
Zapach : Sympatyczny. Generalnie jest słodko-słodowo. Jest tutaj sporo słodkich aromatw: ciemne i czerwone owoce. Najwyraźniej można wyczuć wiśnie i czereśnie. Troszeczkę chmielowych nut rwnież się pojawia.
Smak: Błogi i słodki, ale nie zamulający. Czuć znowu wiśnie i czereśnie, a także karmel i mid. Na koniec rodzynki oraz suszone owoce. Goryczka średnia. 8% alkoholu świetnie zamaskowane.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Belgijski browar a raczej jego przedstawiciel w osobie Johna Martina stworzył to bardzo dobre Scotch Ale. Piwo ma wiele do zaoferowania : od rodzynek, przez śliwki, wiśnie i czereśnie, skończywszy na karmelu i miodzie. Do powtrzenia na bank! Ciekawy styl i gładkie odczucie w ustach.

Cristobal37 (1009) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 12, 2016
Mild aroma. Sweet syruppy caramel brew. Sticky mouthfeel mid bodied. Like a nice brown ale its sweet, nutty, and toasty. Nice brew but nothing exceptional.

Muggus69 (2363) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 09/04/2017 Deep ruby body, beige head is small but persistent. Malty nose - treacle, honey, sweet chewy biscuit, tea cake, heather, red fruits & spicy/floral/earthy sort of undertones. Body is full without being as rich as expected, some stickiness & chewiness nonetheless, subdued carbonation. Loads of caramel, toffee, treacle on the palate, red fruits come through once again, subtle vanilla undertones, cereals, heather, meadow notes, faint peaty smokiness. Booze dries out finish, touch of warmth, decent bitterness. Really enjoyed this - would be lovely off-cask. Despite its origins, it really captures the essence of the Highlands, and the sort of ales native to the region.
