COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kilty Pleasure Scotch Ale exhibits a subtle aroma of vanilla and boasts a rich six-malt body tempered by heather and hops. Remember - when enjoying our latest seasonal draught in the nearest cozy pub, take your time.. because it’s cold outside.

Bomber. Big floral aroma (heather) with vanilla, toffee, chocolate, woody hops. Dark, nearly opaque brown body with a little scarlet peaking out, supports a dense but short light brown head. Sweet fruity taste tempered by light-medium bitterness, some mineral and yeast play, mild smoke. Nice earthy undertones and heavily floral, caramel; there seems to be good malt depth without heavily reliance on the crystal family, and although the roast is muted I know it’s there. Very light woodiness and mild herbal hop contributions, with a bit of spice, but this one’s malt-focused, as it should be. Medium body, alcohol’s about where it should be, perhaps a bit hidden.. A pleasure.

Pours very dark brown almost black, with a very nice tan head. The smell is malty with some earthy hops, but much stronger of malts. The flavor was a little disappointing. It lacks a certain punch that most wee heavies have. I think they try to use caramel malt in place of kettle caramelization. Overall it is a decent beer but it is not a good scotch ale.

Pours a cloudy brown with a thick frothy head. Aroma of scotch whiskey and dark roasted malt. A bit of smoky overtones as well. Taste is dry smokey and peppery with a bit if residual sweetness. Crisp in the finish. A true scotch (as in barrel aged) beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had from bottle. Good aromas and appearance. Disappointing taste. Doesn’t taste bad, but the flavors aren’t as great in comparison to most other scotch ales. This is one of the better PBC beers I have tried but still not quite worth the 5 dollar bomber price it sells for.

Bottle sample. Murky brown with a small off white head. Heavy sweet maltiness aroma, with toffee and earthy hops. Flavors of dried fruits and caramel malts. Full bodied and alcoholic, not easy to drink.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Dancing Camel Pub. Thanks David Cohen. Murky reddish brown, tan wave. Sweet, berry, fruity aroma, a little sour, sweet and weird taste. Medium-to-full body, sweet finish.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. Clear reddish brown. Pretty fruity aroma with malt, caramel and fruit liqueur. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, cookies, fruits and a bitter and somewhat hoppy finish with a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied, oily rounded mouthfeel. Not bad.

Bottle. Sounds like some folks have had some sketchy versions of this beer but this bottle poured fine, dark brown, decent tan, dissipating head. The sweetness for me was not at all overwhelming, making this a scotch ale I can enjoy as opposed to just being too sweet. Solid offering.
