sudomorph (566) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
12oz can. Pours a clear, ruby/caramel with a finger of off white head. Aroma has nice notes of malty grain, caramel, dark fruits, and a touch of fruityness. Taste is semi-sweet with mild notes that match the aroma. Grain, caramel, and slight dark fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly dryer finish. Overall pretty tasty. Not huge flavours but they are there and well blended. Would have again.

Kilt Lifter isnít terribly exciting - it offers little in terms of complexity and body. However, its malty caramel sweetness, smooth mouthfeel, even balance, and slightly roasty finish make for a brew thatís easy to tip back and almost impossible not to like.

Draft in a sampler at the Wilson Taproom. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, brown sugar, and dried leaves. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. A little disappointing.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Location: Draft at the Production Facility Tasting Room, 3/8/14

Aroma: The nose is caramel malts, with some fruity notes, a little spice, and some peat notes
Appearance: It pours a clear amberish color with an off-white head and average lace
Flavor: The flavor is medium sweet, caramel malts, with spice and peat notes
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft-to-average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a decent, drinkable beer. I didnít have any issues with it. It wasnít a favorite for me, but if this was the only craft on tap at a restaurant, Iíd be happy to drink it again.
