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.

Bottle at the Sconser Lodge- Pours Mahagony pours mahagony brown with large frothy head. nose is toast, orange peel, toffee, butter, taste is very light berries, yogurt, and toasty crisp dry finish. nothing exciting.

sound67 (595) - 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!

Hoser (372) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2007
Bottle bought at Kensington Wine Market here in Calgary. Dark in colour and balanced towards malt and not very hoppy for a bitter. Page 457 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 237 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Very bitter with cherry nutes. Full palate. Very bitter, hoppy finish. White foam, stays for long on top. Red-like colour.

500ml bottle from the brewery shop. Frothy off white nose, good lacing. Body is a gorgeous dark amber with a hint of ruby. Nose is sweet and nutty. Flavour is more of the same, a little bitterness on the finish but it doesn't last long. Mouthfeel is a little thin, medium carbonation. Decent but lacks the depth of some of the other Cairngorm brews. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
