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.

kmacphail (37) - Isle of Lewis, SCOTLAND - JUN 4, 2008
I have the same problem with this beer as I do Stag, it’s not available anywhere except from the brewery direct. A gorgeous dark brown ale with an off white head. The taste is dominated by roasted malts and caramel, very similar to stag, except this has an added hint of smokiness to improve the flavour. Great for any lover of dark Scottish ales.

August 07. 2005 by Morag and Donald in Scotland. Mahogany red with a nice head. The aroma is malty, and this is the major note in the flavour too, especially roasted malt. it has notes of caramel, fruit and aroma hops and a light, dry bitter finish. A bit on the thin side.
