A pleasant mahogany coloured best bitter, malt predominating, gives a satisfying fullness of flavour. A glass or two of "Nessie’s 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.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2013
500ml bottle, trade with JohnRMurdoch. Frothy, beige, bubbly head. Clear mahogany coloured body. Laces nicely. Good looking, indeed. Slightly roasted malts on the nose, mid-sweet. Malt-accented taste with nuts and caramel followed by dried fruity, bitter ending. A fine version of the style (hotel room, Edinburgh 10.08.2013).

Bottle from the brewery. Pours clear chestnut coloured with a big frothy off-white head. Aroma of bready malts. Taste is malty as well, dark roasted caramel, weak herbal hops in the finish. Ordinary, but good.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a clear light cola brown one with a good looking big light brown head that’s 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. It’s really thin and watery on the mouthfeel unfortunately. Wasn’t 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. I’m enjoying it more and more, and it’s really lightdrinkable. Not bad. 24.04.2013

ClubGonzo (4900) - 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.
