    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Bottled (from CrackedKettle, old 7.3% version, had in 2009). Deep ambery golden colour with mediumsized foamy white head. Aroma is quite strong on malts, some slight fruity notes as well as alcohol. Flavour is fruity, a bit roasted malty with some slight caramelly notes as well.

    330 ml bottle. Poured a copper - medium amber colored beer with a two fingers white creamy foamy head that had a very long retention. Active carbonation. Great lacing. The aroma is mild grainy malts, a touch of caramel. The flavour is sweet grainy malts, floral hops, cooked vegetables, cabbage, hints of wood. The mouthfeel is creamy and thin. This medium bodied beer has a slight bitter finish. From smoke,as writen on the beer label, no dedected mark. Not so pleasant as attented.

    Pours a clear light yellow amber with a thin head and some lacing left. Decently carbonated. Sweet malts in the aroma with toffee and very slight smokiness. Taste is smooth and the abv is well-hidden with sweet malts, a butter creaminess and a bit of earthy smokiness.

    I was wondering if Nessie was going to pop out of the dark bottle, then I realized, at 7.3%, highly unlikely Nessie would still be sober enough to do so. Nessie pours a reddish gold colour into the glass, emitting off a nose of sweet malt, and sugar. The flavour is mainly sweet malt, certainly not as sweet as other Schloss Eggenberg offerings

    not much on the peat-smoked malt in the nose or the flavor...and for that matter, it's not Red, as the label implies, but ever so slighlty redder than your average macrobrewed lager. I can smell and taste the faintest of smoke, but only because i'm looking for it. nice body, thanks to a respectable 7.3 abv, thicker than it looks and sweet, which ends up being the predominant factor in the nose and flavor as there is a complete lack of hop presence.

    Can’t see how this is classified as a smoked ale. Nothing smokey about this beer in any way. Semi-sweet nose with some metallic notes. Flavor has more of the sweet flavor, some light fruit notes and a touch of alcohol. If there was any hint of peated malt, it’s long gone.

    Sampled from bottle: pours a dark orange/golden colour with a creamy white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is soft of whiskey, caramel and licorice. Mouthfeel is light, silky- prevalent alcohol taste, flavors of oak, grass and pear.

    Pours with an amber hue, off white head, quite large, stays throughout the experience. Quite caramelly taste very heavy fruity notes that do not entirely please me, overall this is not that pleasant a beer.

    Good looking golden/orange. Smell of some spritsy malt and a small smokey note. Alcohol is the main source of sweetness in this brew. The promised taste of whiskey didn't showed up, just some light notes of a cheap blended scoth. Alcoholc finish.

    nice sweet aroma that has hints of fruit. poured a nice golden color with a short lived off white head. very sweet with a slight hint of peat smoke. kind of buttery. not bad could drink this again
