3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
If you've never had it on tap then you need to ASAP. It is not even close to the same beer in a bottle. The stuff in the bottle is boring like Al Gore, but on tap it's spicy like Charro. Bottled it seems like a basic amber with too much fizz. Since draught is often less carbonated that might be the major difference. My go-to beer when on tap, but NEVER from a bottle. Goes well with mexican food.

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.

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 donít 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.

Deep red, slightly cloudy pour. No head. Aroma is very sweet. Hints of scotch in the aroma. Some apple notes. Huge syrupy mouth. Taste is estery with hints of booze. Some scotch notes along with cereal and bread. It didnít quite life my kilt.

Tap @ Four Peaks Tempe. Pours a clear, dark orange appearance with a white head. Light caramel, toasty malty, a bit sweet aroma. Fruity, a bit citrusy, sweet caramel malty flavor. Ok.
