COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
A pleasant mahogany coloured best bitter, malt predominating, gives a satisfying fullness of flavour. A glass or two of "Nessieís Monster Mash" is a must before seeking an audience with the monster. The legendary monster is a source of constant speculation and rumour as he watches from his lair deep in the dark and mysterious depths of majestic Loch Ness.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a clear light cola brown one with a good looking big light brown head thatís leaving some serious lacing on the sides of the glass. On the aroma it has a good cola sweetness. Could of course be the imagination, but I clearly smell old still cola here. Also, it has a light herbal tone, almost grassy. Not extreme, a bit sticky sweet and definitely not bad. Itís really thin and watery on the mouthfeel unfortunately. Wasnít expecting a full-bodied experience, but this was really thin stuff. Flavors however is quite nice. Lots of internal, thin sweet, really earthy flavors with traces of both cocoa, bitter almonds, chocolate, light roasted malts, really thin coffee and biscuits. Mmhhh, lots of flavor packed in a really thin beer. Iím enjoying it more and more, and itís really lightdrinkable. Not bad. 24.04.2013

ClubGonzo (4239) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear deep bronze-hued brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is the oh-so-conventional caramel and burnt sugar tones, with hints of vanilla and grains. Taste is sweet grainy caramel tones with some nuts, biscuits and vanilla. Slightly bitter finish with burnt sugar tones. Light body, soft to medium carbonation. Decent enough, but dull as expected.

500ml bottle (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki)
Super malty aroma, and perhaps a bit yeasty. Dark roast in the taste. Palate is a littel watery, but not thin. Some yeastiness in the taste too. General feeling is that itís a bit watery, but otherwise OK.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
500ml bottle: best before 28 May 2013. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 30 Dec 2012. The beer looked good: deep reddy brown body with a full biege head on top. Malts all the way in this brew: semi-sweet and fairly mild roastiness wise is both the smell and taste. Some hints of peat smokiness try and sneak into the flavours along with dark chocolate and a hand full of mixed nuts (unsalted). Pleasant enough and although a ítourist-beerí it was OK.
