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%.

MOARBEER's rating

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
MOARBEER (791) - - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a mahogany/deep ruby with tiny off white head. Little in the way of aroma but you can tell it’s going to be sweet. Taste is sweet malt and some berry fruit, also get some sweet liquorice. Not offensive but not exciting.

Ritzn (1994) - GERMANY - JAN 12, 2018
Aroma is murky moss some ash some overly sweet syrupy malt. Taste is sour and sweet syrup. Not balanced. Quite ugly. Aftertaste is sweet and more pleasant. Still bad.

kaserov (1109) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2018
Color marrón oscuro, rojizo si le da la luz, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio de dos dedos de grosor y retención decente. Carbonatación alta. Textura oleosa y ligeramente chispeante. Aroma ramplón y poco expresivo. Caramelo, alcohol, metal. En boca hay caramelo, pasas, metal, alcohol. Postgusto alcohólico y ligeramente metálico.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 14/11/2017 - 33cl bottle @Orient Express, Brussels. Hazy brown with nice creamy head. Nose is malts, some dark fruits, hint of licorice, aniseed. Taste is sweet, caramel, easy drinking.

Bottle. Very delicious and warming, just what one wants when it in cold weather. Quite syrupy.

redders1974 (1702) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2017
A nice brown with big froyhy head fudgey rum and raisin with a sugar sweet finish medium bodied decent scotch ale but ive had better.

nathanvc (798) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle from Delhaize. Pours dark amber/brown with a minimal tan head. The aroma contains caramel, sugar, butterscotch, roasted malt and toffee. It tastes medium to heavy sweet and very light bitter, which counters a possible cloying. Soft fizzy carbonation, syrupy texture, medium body, slightly metallic finish. I might even have this again, but not too soon.
