Mac Queen’s Nessie

Quite how this is a “red” ale, or indeed a Wee Heavy, is really not at all apparent, but here goes anyway.
Pours a dark yellow, and for all intents and purposes, apart from the depth of color, this beer looks like a macro lager. Little or no head and no lacing.
Some fruit and alcohol in the aroma.
Quite oily in the mouth, and the alcohol taste combined with the slick feel make this beer seem much more than the 7.3% would suggest.
Tastes are largely alcohol and a whisky (or other spirit) type of taste. The alcohol comes through very strong, and it drinks above the published ABV.
As it warms it mellows out a little, but this is drinks like a rather strong Euro lager. Not especially smooth, in fact it burns a little. I was surpised at how rough around the edges this beer was.
