12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium frothy tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of toasted malts, graham crackers, caramel, butter. The taste is caramel, toasted malts, faint earthy notes, very faint hops in the finish. Medium bodied. OK.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of diacetyl and caramel malt. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, tan/off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet. Tastes of diacetyl and caramel malt. Medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Caramel malt and diacetyl finish. A buttery mess.

Twisted Kilt had a lot of promise. I do really enjoy everything Iíve had from Thirsty Dog, and Scotch Ales are rising on my list of favorite styles. The color was like iced tea, maybe a bit more orange. Some moderate malty flavors with some light hop bitterness and some fruit notes. Thereís an unexpected sour finish, but once I knew to expect it, I liked it.
Overall, I thought it was alright. I might get it again, but there are other Scotch Ales I much prefer

Poured a clear caramel color with a small offwhite head. Aroma is quite sweet with a candy corn hint. Some scotch with lots of caramel. Taste is a little watery with lots of caramel and sweet doughy flavors. Not as harsh as other scotch ales. A little too sweet but overall pretty good.

Again this is from cleveland (well akron). Unfortunately I didnít like this as much as some of the other beers from the classy "thirsty dog" brewery. This bottle has a girl wearing a kilt which appears to be being eaten by some sort of dog. I canít tell you if it is a golden retriever, or if it is just a common mutt. I suppose I am happy that it is not a male with a kilt. I am not very familiar with these scotch ales, but this tastes pretty watered down, and sweet. Not really the best combination in my book. Bah!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep caramel pour with minimal off-white head. Nose is Wheaties. Tastes like liquid Wheaties with some hops and brown sugary notes. Medium palate, not offensive, like a Celebrator light.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark honey and hay aroma. Clear auburn, medium yellow head, poor retention. Slightly sweet barley malt, toast. Finishes with subtle toffee notes. Creamy and light mouthfeel. Alcohol not noticeable. Really quite nice in many ways. Very quaffable and a good American take on a British style.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear reddish amber, one finger white head dissipates quickly. Aroma is very faint; I first notice something that almost smells sour? Mostly musty and slightly fruity. Taste is just a bit tart; malts, and a slight caramel are evident. Iím getting almost a corn type taste? More bland than other Scottish ales Iíve had; would have thought this was a lager if it was a blind test. An easy drinker; light body and medium carbonation.

Dark amber with a big beige head. Sweet malt and spice aroma. Flavor of malt and caramel. A little syrupy and dry in the finish. Thanks for the Christmas present Patty.
