Daniel's point on the hops is well taken. But I dissagree with him on the body being too light. Kiltlifter does have a lighter body but not every Scotch ale is a Wee-heavy. I think if you were to put this beer in a 60 shilling (or light) catagory then the body fit just fine. The malt profile is supurb and could not be better. I did take off a point for too much hop for the style but in their defense it is brewed in the middle of hop country so extra hops are hard to resist.

A little to light for a scotch ale, both in terms of taste and color. Instead of a chewy brew you get a medium-bodied ale that is a touch too bitter. Since most scotch ales are naturally sweet (though not overwhelmingly so), I was slightly disappointed with this one.
