Brewed with seven varieties of malt, including a wee amount of Scotch "whiskey" malt, Tilted Kilt Ale is a rich full-flavored ale with a deep red color.

dark ruby-brown colour, few head, fruity aroma, very malty, sweet, buttery with a long fruity (apple ?) finish

I was actually impressed with Pyramids’ Scotch. Nothing amazing but better than I expected. I like the full fruity flavor and the aftertaste.

NW brewers would all love to brew a decent Scottish ale, mainly because Scotland’s so cool. One problem: the Scots have no hops and NW brewers are hop fiends. Thus they’re usually poorly made (see Grant’s and Mactarnahan’s). But the Titled Kilt is a fine example--it’s a malt fest, sweet and smoky. The peated malt is exactly what it should be, a minor note that adds complexity and a meatiness. A beer that might actually have been brewed in Scotland.

You call this a scottish Ale? I thought this was terrible. Where’s the peat? totally unbalanced and overrated.

This made my day. Though a modest brew, this is the best Pyramid offers by far. Malty aroma with a hint of smoke or spice, a full body that avoids excessive carbonation and foam, and a swallow that you feel hit your gut. This is a substantial brew. Kudos Pyramid!

Deep ruby color; head fizzy and cola like; Candy apple nose. Thin palate. Nice flavor profile if not exciting. No earthiness that should be in a Scot. A cloying sweetness emerges at 1/2 mark.

Complex flavors but not a classic scotish ale. I tasted the whiskey malt but just did not enjoy the brew

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 19, 2002
Super clear dark copper with a thin off white edge head. Moderate carbonation. Malty aroma, toasted and sweet and lightly roasted. Where’s the peat? Light bodied, watery sweetness, bitterness that teases. This tastes like a ’macro’. No peat tanginess or hints of smoke. Fizzy texture with dollops of light maltiness. This is so unattractive. Ever so slight earthy flavor emerges with the lightest tang of peat. They must have bought their peat from the Home Depot garden center. Turns fruity? towards the finish and finishes clingy and sweet. Yawn!

Surprisingly refreshing while I drank it on the first real nice day of spring.

Brick red color and wee bit of head. (I couldn’t resist) They boast 7 varieties of malt, but the whiskey malt is most prevailant and dominates the nose. A very smooth ale with a sweet finnish. 30% cheaper than Pike’s Kilt lifter (the way American Scottish ales should be priced).
