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.

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.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast, caramel, and nutty malt with dates and figs, and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a sweet finish. Medium to full body and medium carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pike Kilt Lifter has a thick, cream-colored head, a murky, light brown appearance, some bubble streams, and a few lacing rings left behind. The aroma is of slightly fruity, sweet brown bread crust, and light brown sugar. Taste is of sweet & sour sauce, brown bread crust, light brown sugar, moderate hop bitterness, and toffee. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and a bit velvety, and Pike Kilt Lifter finishes semi-dry, decently refreshing, and rather rich. Overall, this is tasty and interesting. RJT

Dark amber ale with elements of peat, wood, caramel and smoky malt. Skin of a beige head, medium weight, tangy palate with a slow, mild alcohol burn. Nice sipper for a fall day.
