Moylan’s Kilt Lifter Scotch Style Ale has a thick, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, ruby, appearance, with ascending stray bubbles and some nice sheet lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, mildly fruit, bread crust, and a touch of alcohol. Taste is of those elements, plus some caramel, alongside subdued alcohol and low level bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Moylan’s Kilt Lifter Scotch Style Ale finishes semi-dry and relatively drinkable. RJT

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle. Murky, copperish-brown colour, amber glimmer, with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Nuttily, malty aroma, notes of toffee, ephemeral fruity overtones with hints of red berries and stone fruit. Taste is initially minimally tart-ish, dry fruity, hints of red berries, later minimally sweet malty, some toffee, a touch of caramel. Unconvincing.

"great looking beer on the pour. heavy peat tones, sweet, alcohol nose. Same on the palate. A little sweet, a little smokey. As with Sacsquatch, the lack of consistency prevents me from giving it a really good score, but that’s it. you can count on the quality from the tap, just not the bottle."

Transfer from BA review on 4-29-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a deep amber/copper color with a one finger tan colored head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the heavy of toasted grain and sweet dark fruit of raisin and prune. There is also a big and heavy boozy smell of a Scotch whisky as well as a lighter aroma of a toffee sweetness giving it a big and sweet boozy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a flavor of roasted malt and a brown bread taste. There is a big sweetness of caramel and brown sugar up front that transitions more toward a toffee like flavor as a buttery taste joins the flavor as well. Along this time some other sweeter dark fruit flavors of raisin and figs hit the tongue, with the first taste of a bit of alcohol mixed within. The alcohol is light with the dark fruits taking on a light rum soaked flavor with a slight amount of smoke also coming to the tongue to produce a somewhat whisky like boozy taste. Toward the very end some notes of a bittering earthy hop join the tongue and will all the other flavors leaves a rather sweet taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and smoother side with the carbonation level being lower to moderate side. The creamier body and thinner carbonation suit the style rather well with the smooth flavor at the end making for a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – A sweet and tasty brew with a great drinkability at 8 % abv.. A nice drinker and one to try.

Bottle from Marketplace Alehouse and Deli, Doncaster. Clear, reddy amber. Thin, lasting, off white head. Sweet, spicy malt. Some vanilla. Taste is vanilla sweet. Spicy dry. Bit of chew on the palate. Finishes light dry. Still some sweet on the close. Not normally my thing, but I enjoyed this.

This was a much better beer that I was expecting, loads and loads of malts, caramel, with a bit of smoakyness and vanilla.
