Salty Scot: Sea Salted Caramel Scotch Ale // Parallel 49 Brewing Co.
“Building upon a Scottish “Wee Heavy”, this unique beer was developed to provide a strong caramel malt flavour with enough salt to give it a bit of a bite. Stronger in alcohol, this beer starts off sweet but remains fairly light to drink.”
