Gordon Finest Platinum has a velvety sensation on a bitter but not harsh mantle. Dense in the mouth, it imparts an additional sharper bitterness to the throat toned with some piquancy on the tongue. It expends all its alcoholic flavour down to the last drop on the palate, where it leaves an excellent, lingering aftertaste. It really must be savoured refreshingly cold in order to preserve the severe nature of its particular and fascinating taste.
Golden (as the name says) and very well carbonated with some head retention. The nose is a bit tight, but eventually there are creamy and pale malt aromas. The taste is much bigger with lemon tart and vanilla custard being prominent. The palate has a very large structure, a creamy texture and a refreshing finish. Overall, this is a big but well balanced beer. …..
