3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Yard House in Scottsdale. This beer is a slightly cloudy reddish-amber color with a medium thin light beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked malt and hops. Medium body with a mildly smoky character and flavors of grainy malt and hops. The finish is sweet with a short malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Four peaks Kilt Llifter ale is sparkling clear dark amber with a moderate white head and lacing.
Mildly malty nose with a touch of what seems to be a fruity off-odor.
No off-flavors, however. Just a faint touch of smoke. Limited malt flavor.
Medium body with medium carbonation. Fairly smooth.
O: a bit too light flavored for style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy red with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, slight spice, earthy notes, slight cardboard as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight grass, earth and spice notes, leading into a hint of oxidation, metallic note, finishing sweet, slightly dry.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass (~1/3 pint)
From: A Chevron in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: $8.99 for mixed 6-pack
Purchased: May 15, 2013
Consumed: May 15, 2013
Poured a caramel, copper, amber color, just a tad darker than the 8th Street Pale Ale, with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head. Lots of spider web foamy lacing on the side. Average retention on the top.
Smelled lots of malts - caramel, toffee, iced tea and roasty. Some rye hops as well. Sugary and sweet.
Tasted close to the smell with arguably a bit more flavor. Caramel, toffee, apple, nutty and sweet sugary malts. Candied sugary apple. I don’t know why but it really tastes better than I thought.
Light-to-medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Long, watery finish.
Very nice beer. I would certainly get some more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy and cloudy orange copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, pear, raisin, toast, bread, floral, light peat, and floral earthiness; some light phenols as well, but not too bad. Some nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity; the phenolic note knocks it down a bit. Taste of caramel, toast, raisin, pear, bread, floral, light pepper, light peat, and floral earthiness; slight phenols noticed after the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, bread, floral, light pepper, light peat, and earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of flavors with solid complexity; good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. The phenolic note was noticeable, but not too detracting. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice Scottish ale. Good balance of malt/fruity flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle share by Brian, aroma of corn and wheat, almost lager like. Taste is similar, little bit of caramel, light body, blah.
