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

A: Pours copper brown with a slightly fizzy tan head that settles quickly fades to a thin layer and leaves a little spotty lacing.

S: Dark fruit, toasty bready malt, lots of toffee sweetness, and a hint of spice.

T: Toasty bready malt, toffee sweetness, a hint of molasses, dark fruity notes, fig, raisin, and faint floral and spice notes.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Just meh for me. Not terrible, but it doesn't get me all that excited either.

Trying this outside of ASU campus at Devil's Advocate. It poured a clear amber with thin white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The had hints of sweet malt. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink.....nice caramel malt base. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

Very good Scottish-Style Ale. Smells a little heavy but it's not at all once you start drinking it. Very disappointed that they sold out to Budweiser; but I still feel they're the best craft'r in the Phoenix area.
