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.

sudomorph (1095) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
Real ale at the Stein Inn, Isle of Skye. Pours a dark caramel/copper with a thin, bubbly head. Aroma has mild notes of caramel, toffee, roast, and traditional grassy/spicy hops. Taste is balanced. Toffee, caramel, slight roast, and some spicy hops to end. Medium body with a low-medium cask carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a big, dry finish. Overall a really tasty cask. Mild caramel, toffee, roast, slight spicy hops, and a dry finish.

AshtonMcCobb (5392) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2014
On cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - dark brown to chestnut. Decent head. Nose - toffee and nuts. Taste - more praline. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish if a little sweet though that is expected from the style. Overall - yep 80 shilling fairly well nailed.
