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.

OleR (4849) - 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.

Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a clear light cola brown one with a good looking big light brown head that’s leaving some serious lacing on the sides of the glass. On the aroma it has a good cola sweetness. Could of course be the imagination, but I clearly smell old still cola here. Also, it has a light herbal tone, almost grassy. Not extreme, a bit sticky sweet and definitely not bad. It’s really thin and watery on the mouthfeel unfortunately. Wasn’t expecting a full-bodied experience, but this was really thin stuff. Flavors however is quite nice. Lots of internal, thin sweet, really earthy flavors with traces of both cocoa, bitter almonds, chocolate, light roasted malts, really thin coffee and biscuits. Mmhhh, lots of flavor packed in a really thin beer. I’m enjoying it more and more, and it’s really lightdrinkable. Not bad. 24.04.2013

5 May 2011, bottle. amber, clear w/ steady bubble and a foamy tan head. nose is a slightly yeasty, nutty malt. med body and slightly fizzy. Actually a decent amber ale. has a bit of a woody element that is a bit drying w/ some bitterness that doesn’t have any real hop flavour.

Orangebrun klar i fargen med beige skum. Karamell, melkesjokolade og malt. Søt og bitter brent karamell i smaken. Fruktig. Kort ettersmak, frisk munnfølelse.
