We put the kettle on for a long boil and this Scottish wee heavy is what we got. Rich Caramel is complemented by sea salt for a complex intense flavour. Another? Aye

Can at home. Was hoping for better from my homeland. The sweetness of the scotch ale somewhat tempered by subtle salty notes. Changed a lot as it warmed up and had a strange metallic finish. Bread notes, caramel and dried fruit. Somewhat thin bodied. Average.
