Kilty Pleasure by Philadelphia Brewing Company

It as been a while since I have had a brew from beer #245’s brewer, Philadelphia Brewing Company.  That beer was #64, Fleur De Lehigh and it was a bad experience being the beer was actually spoiled.  Lets hope today’s beer, and I’m sure I won’t have a repeat experience, is better.

Kilty Pleasure is today’s beer of choice and it brewed in the style of a Scotch Ale or  Wee Heavy.  The ABV of this traditional Scottish brew comes in at a hefty 8%.

The color was a dark brown with a nice red tint to it when it was held up to the light.  It had a nice sized mocha colored head.  The nose was slightly sweet with caramel malts, brown sugar, and  molasses.  At times I thought I got an aroma similar to the raw dough from chocolate chip cookies.  This was a malty flavored brew with a hint of smoke.  Caramel and a bit of vanilla lead off in the taste being just slightly sweet.   That slight smokiness and a raisin-like flavor come in to play near the back end of the mouthful.  There was just a hint of bitterness in the medium bodied beer.  The carbonation was on the lower side.  The ABV was hidden well here.

This was a solid beer from the city of brotherly love…unless you are a Cowboys fan.  Cheers!
