3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I guess Iím biased because they brew this stuff down the street. Itís much better on tap, and if you live in AZ itís almost impossible to go to a bar and not see Kiltlifter on tap. Sweet, malty, and Iíve seen "smokey" used in some of the ratings and since thatís as close as I can pin point it weíll go with that. Great for those nights you feel like getting laced by something that tastes decent.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper. Moderately aromatic, with scents of herbs, grass, smoke and toasted malts. Flavor is very similar to the aroma with an added hint of caramel, toffee, wood, smoke and vanilla. Toasted malts are very evident. Very sweet for the style. Very light in nody. Mediocre.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: a clear, deep amber hue, and an impressively thick, full, creamy head. Aroma: much on the mild side, and shy to offer itself up, but we do perceive bits of nuts, toffee, cocoa, soft spices, herbs.
On the palate, a nice malty-sweet flavor at first. Body is medium, texture is good, hops are very light, if attending this function at all. Thereís a slight smokey feel, if Iím not imagining it, with lush taste of caramel and such behind. Body feels too thin, though, and those promising flavors soon fade out. Easy to drink, but not much to admire, Iím sorry.

Tasty brew if youíre in the mood for something a little heavier than average. Little if any hops. Malty, slightly sweet with a bit of cafe aroma and flavor. Didnít really quench my thirst, actually it increased it. Popular brew however, and worth a try.

Thanks to my future sister-in-law for this bottle. Not a bad beer. Very drinkable. Just boring. Tasted like a beer with a hint of malt flavor to it.
