12/17/17: $13 Pint purchased by my brother at T Mobile arena for Las Vegas Knights vs. Florida Panthers game. Brown pour into plastic stadium cup, light head, barley and chocolate aroma. Mild taste similar to aroma, very light mouth feel, easy drinking. Overall OK offering.

Can poured into a thistle glass.

Pretty average Scotch Ale. Not in the same league as Dirty Bastard. The name is fantastic though; I wonder if my gay uncle who works in a kilt shop would appreciate it (not joking)?! Wouldn’t be in a huge rush to get this again. Cheers anyway

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter via the little lady's daughter and beau---Thanks Jeanette and Jamie!
This decent Scottish pours a clear medium dark brown tinged amber with a nice head of off
white foam that settles fast to a thin ring, light pool, and shows subtle sudsy lacing. Nose of
caramel malts, brown sugars, and subtle chocolate mingling with light herbal hops. Flavors
follow the nose with light exceptions with a light black berry note mingling with subtle chocolate
and caramel flavors that is lightly touched with herbal hops. Nice mouth feel; medium body,
medium carbonation that is lively, and a sweet caramel finish.

Overall a decent Scottish.

Cheers

Okay Scottish Ale, no head and a bit sweet. Pours amber and drinks like a dobblebock.

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
