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.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - DEC 7, 2005
some friends brought this over from scotland for me. poured deep brown with a tan-mushroom head. malty wet nose with roasted nut essence. mouth continues the same malted toffee flavors not particulary sweet but non impressive on the palate. needs more substance and less water.

Hoser (367) - 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.

Maria (10143) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2007
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.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 1, 2010
[500ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours reddish brown, with a thin white head. Malty aroma with some yeast notes. More malt on the taste, a little stone fruit, caramel and nuts. Reminded me very much of their Stag - a nudge up the abv meter, maybe a little more malt on the palate, but that’s about it [23042010]
