3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours brown in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by caramel. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a mild citrus and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. An interesting interpretation of the style and definitely worth a try.

Golden amber, sweet character...almost flavoured, i like the salty caramel notes, but it’s too sweet to drink too much.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep reddish copper pour with a small ivory ring for a head. Only a single spot left inside the glass. Nose is subtle and sugary with toffee, butterscotch, caramel malt, honey, macadamia nuts, and maple syrup. Flavor shows all of the before-mentioned redeeming qualities with the addition of crunchy, coarse sea salt. The sweet and briny quality is reminiscent of incredible ice cream. Great combination of flavor and surprised by the average rating.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Earthy malt raisin nose with a a hint of fruity esters. Has a caramel characteristic . Coppery coloured with a tan head and a good carbonation. Clear and inviting.. Big malty base with caramel characteristics and an interesting salty flavour, which fights to balance the crystal malt sweetness. Low or no discernible hop character , and almost cloying sweetness on the finish. No noticible peatiness. Somewhat doughy character to the yeast.. Medium bodied with a slickness on the tongue on the finish..carbonation at a farliy high rate fir style. Overall, a tasty 80 shilling with not much peat, but an interesting sweet/salt dynamic.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured as a taster at local shop. This smells of caramel and malt. Taste is somewhat anemic and not very full of flavor. There is a clear taste of caramel and salt, but it’s just not very fulfilling. Wanted to like it more, but just didn’t.
