3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock, AR. Pours a deeper brown colored body with a ruby hue. Finger-width, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is clean, medium sweet toffee with a light brown sugar, some earth, touches of honey, a few darker fruit esters, and a touch of roast. Flavor is similar. Clean, medium sweet toffee and caramel with a very light bread. Some fruity esters in the middle with an earthy balance as well as touches of honey and brown sugar before this finishes dry, earthy and grassy, lightly bitter, and faintly roasted with a balancing, light malt sweetness and fruity ester. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium-light body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent Scotch Ale. Not the biggest in body or overly robust, but balanced and flavorful. Good beer.

Solid beer, ive got a growler of it and damn is it tasty. Very thick and malty, lots of caramel and really thick texture to it. Im a huge fan, not alot of hops so that is as nice and unique change.

(draught at the brewpub) no description - simply written up as "Vino’s Scotch Ale" on the whiteboard. I saw "Kiltlifter" on a hand lettered label stuck to the tap (May have been "Kelly’s Kiltlifter, but I wasn’t sure). Nice medium brown, small head but nice lace. Very mild malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malt, a hint of caramel.
