Highlanders and Lowlanders agree, a good kilt lifting on occasion raises the spirits. With gentle roasted graininess and a touch of sweetness, Kilt Lifter is warm and strong enough for all ye lads, lasses and sheep. Put it in yer belly!

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain with hints of toffee and sweet fruits. Flavor begins with sweet fruit but has a good amount of toffee that comes out in the finish.

On draft at Prado location. Pours a red-amber with a white head. Nose is malt, slight fruit, slight maple, and a hint of smoke. Flavor is similar with some dark malts, and some maple flavor. Decent scotch ale with a medium body and lingering sweet malty finish.

My second favorite here. Dark reddish brown with an everlasting head. Hides the alcohol well, because none on the nose, just malty sweetness although slight. Flavor was like warm caramel, finishes like velvet.

Pours a dark brown with a beautiful purple hue when held up to the light. Unfortunately the aroma was a little buttery but there was some nuttiness in there too. Flavor was chewy malt, purple fruit, flat cola, and nut again. Finish was a little bitter, metallic hop bitter. Judging by previous ratings it looks like this brew has its good batches and bad batches.
