Kilt Lifter is a nice, mellow Scottish Ale. Not quite as malty and caramel-y as other beers within the style but thats not a bad thing. This beer's smoothness while clocking in at 6% ABV makes it a pretty palatable offering that you can sip on all day. I tested my own theory by trying this beer first at the tasting room then again at a local Tempe, A brewpub that sold in a 32-ounce mug. Good stuff and easy/delightful to knock back

It's pretty good for a brown ale. Pours medium brown..almost amber. Tiny head and tiny bit of lacing. Aroma is somewhat smokey chocolatey and honey. Taste is a smokey honey, chocolate and coffee. Feel is medium carbonated. Overall, decent to say the least. Can't imagine anyone disliking this.

Amberish copperish brownish appearance with not so much head. Smell earthy. Taste earthy, sweet, and mildly sour. Rich mouthfeel. Very enjoyable. Cheers
