COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle.
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.

sound67 (223) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2010
50cl bottle, label as shown. Pours a clear hazelnut brown with a medium-sized light beige head. Good retention, decent lacing. Aroma of ripe plums, toffee and bready malt. Medium-bodied bitter with a solid, smooth mouth feel. Very moderate carbonation. Velvety and comforting. :=) Characterful flavour of caramel, roasted malt and some barnyard notes. Bitterness increases towards the finish. Moderately bitter, lingering after taste. A smooth and satisfying bitter, more complex and rewarding than many. Down the hatch - next one, please!
