Bottle share. This beer is exactly as described on the bottle. Heavy nose of caramel and salt. Taste is heavy caramel with sea salt cutting off/balancing the flavour. It's a fun beer.

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.
