COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

much drier malt flavor, only a touch of sweetness, just too dry for a scotch ale, must be a mistake, a big drop for this usually fine ale

Name: Glenkevin Wee Heavy Scotch Ale

Score: downgrade iii to ii
still dry, and now a bit thin, too, a touch of smokey peat character, the sweetness barely shows up at the end but it remains too thin

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Tap. Sweet bing cherry and malt aroma. Dark amber color with small head. Initially a moderate hops flavor followed by a very nice caramel and cherry flavor and a hint of smokiness. Has a nice hops finish. Very nicely blended on the fruity side.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a thin light tan head. Caramel malty aroma has a touch of green English hops and a hint of lager yeast. Starts sweet with nice subtle malty caramel flavor but it very thin and watery, especially toward the finish. It hides it’s alcohol well though, somehow, but could really use some more body.

deyholla (6490) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 18, 2012
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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2006
Pours a medium amber- almost lighter than I expected a wee heavy to be, with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, raisin and a touch of smoke and roasted barley. Flavor was a bit weak as indicated by its lighter color, with some sugary sweetness, candied friuts, raisin and light caramel malts. Finish is slightly sweet and somewhat smooth but lacks a bit of body.

Mahogany pour with off white creamy head and lace. Semi sweet malt caramel malt and abv on the nose. Abv, semi sweet malt, brown sugar, and a mdium bitter finish. Medium/full bodied with nice carbonation. Very warm sweet and smooth. Very nice.

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.
