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.

SilkTork (5156) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Pasteurised bottle (Tomintoul). Great name, shame about the beer. Grassy aroma from the co2. Brief malt flavour before the metallic notes come in and then proceed to slash my mouth to pieces until it tastes like jagged shards of tin covered in blood. Best before date is this month. Obviously at this extreme end of the shelf life this beer has completely packed in. [2.0]
Bottle (Cairngorm) BBE Jan 05. Big loose head. Caramel notes in aroma and flavour. Dark tones. Doesn't rock my boat.

gunnar (5102) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 14, 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.

OleR (4762) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle, purchased @Meny Oslo City. A finger of shiny sand-colored head, covering a clear (as claimed) mahogny colored body. A slight acidic dark fruit nose, to some dryish toasted light caramelly malts. Body is light plus. Dryish, light diluted malt base. Subtle bread and caramel. A light earthy bitterness is lurking under. Short malty, subdued bitter finish. Overall, a pretty decent one. Would love to try it from well conditioned cask.
