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.

FatPhil (12760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 29, 2013
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 it’s a bit watery, but otherwise OK.

imdownthepub (12668) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2004
Bottled, Pasteurised. Amber beer with frothy head. Heavily carbonated beer which was difficult to taste, so left it 30 mins, still carbonated! Some thick toffeish malt tasting overbrewed a little spice but no real character.
