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.

Palme (4811) - 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

visionthing (5337) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2013
50cl bottle from Meny Grønland. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma with some toasty notes, dried fruits, caramel and hints of hops. Medium sweet and malty with a mild bitterness in the finish. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Quite ok.

OleR (4804) - 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.

Malty aroma. Dark brown colour. Not much to distinguish the taste, slightly sweet, bitter aftertaste.

leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2004
Bottled. Dark amber with an off-white head. Aromas are toffee, roast malts and berries. Flavours are fruity and toffee malts, quite sweet with an earthy, dry finish. A bit thin with bloating carbonation. Not too bad, though.

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.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Dark amberish ruby colour with mediumsized beige head. Malt and caramel in aroma. Flavour is roasted malts with sweet caramel. The roastiness is pretty deep down below. Wellbalanced though.

Hoser (387) - 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 (10212) - 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.
