Appearance: Cloudy. Deep Amber. Some, not much head.
Smell: Nutty and sweet. Little honey.
Taste: Mmmm...think of a caramel apple when you drink this. Hints of sweet hops and malt.
Drinkability: Oh yeah - I'll definitely drink this beer again. Mild-light carbonation, but perfect for this beer.

About two weeks before I started writing reviews, I had a Kilt Lifter for the second time. Couldn't stop talking about it for at least a week. Just blew me away. When I decided to start writing reviews - this was one of the first I got. After every sip, I couldn't wait for the next. Try to take your time, as you should with beers like this - but it's tough. I wouldn't say the flavors are complex, but very distinct. Think of a caramel apple - and you'll taste one in this beer. But I wouldn't say this was a sweet beer at all. Light on the hops, and definitely not bitter. Oddly enough, by the end - as the last few drops had warmed up - it maintained that original flavor. I love this beer - maybe you will too...

Lots of breadiness and some butterscotch/caramel flavor that creeps through. Wasn't my favorite at first sip but as I continue to sip on it the butterscotch seems to come through a little more for me. Then again, most Wee Heavy ales aren't my favorite at first sip.
