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.

harrisoni (13631) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011
500ml bottle from Dobbies garden centre, Ashford. Clear chestnut colour with lasting thick beige head. Toffee dry malty aroma. Lots of dry malt on the aroma. Bit dull in the mouth. Some malt. Not much hop presence throughout. OK, if just a little one dimensional.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
A beer with a nice dark colour and good looking foam. I was not too carzy about the taste of it though. It seemed to lack a little in the finnish and it did not have the full body that one could hope to find in a good ale. While it was not a bad beer I would prefer to drink the porter from the same brewery.

scotty (1052) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2005
Good lookin’ beer, good tight white head, leaves a nice lace down the glass. Soft sweet malty nose with a hint of hops..nice! Quite thin on the palate, initially good malt but that fades very quickly and leaves little in the way of a finish.

Beese (1707) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2007
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Bottle from Tesco, Wokingham. Poured a bright amber, with a thin, tight white head and some lacing. Malty aroma, with sweet brown sugar and damsons. Similar sweet, malt heavy flavours; toffee and brown bread. Very little hop character. Finish was grain, hay and the smallest amount of residual grassy hops.
