3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Pikeís Kilt Lifter was one of the first beers that I drank when I moved out here to the Seattle area. Since there are so many beers to try and so little time, I havenít tried the same beer twice since Iíve been out here, but since I hadnít done a quick review on this one and It was so good, I had to try it again.
The Kilt Lifter pours a nice reddish amber color with a thick tan head.It smells a little like a sweet yeast bread. It tastes mildly of a smoke and orange with a hint of sweet malt. It is nicely carbonated, itís like a peach on the palate. It is easy to drink and went well with a spicy meal.

Don't really know Scottish ales but this it's a stout to me. Carmel flavors and aromas. Nice and smooth but that's about it

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours two fingers on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is fruity: apricot, apple and pear. A touch too ripe though.
The taste is ripe apricot, bitter grapefruit, with a sweet finish. Unbalanced.
The texture is heavy, a little sticky with moderate carbonation.
This one never gets it all together at the same time. Individual elements were okay, but...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
No bottle date
Pours a nice bourbon caramel with a small fleeting white residue. Brilliant clarity. Smells of toast, english tea, some brown sugar and a wee bit of cinnamon. Flavor carries plenty of bread, some yeast and slight oxidation (cardboard), hints of tea. Medium bodied with light carb and a noninvasive finish. A decent, approachable beer. I can see myself grabbing this on a cool fall day.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale straw golden color. Sweet bread aroma. Sips malty and surprisingly crisp. Big malt and hop presence in this one. Does have slight whiskey flavor as advertised. Typical hoppy pac west version of the style.
