Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale brewed by Monday Night Brewing - Atlanta, GA

Drafty Kilt is a roasty scotch ale with a hint of smoke. Full-bodied, but not overpowering. Smokey, but not in a creepy bar kind of way. Sweet, but not obnoxiously so. Sound like your ideal mother-in-law? Fair enough, but it also is a pretty dead-on description of our Scotch Ale. In a difficult hop-growing climate, Scottish brewers relied on other ingredients to impart flavor and bitterness – one such ingredient was smoked malt. Drafty Kilt is a dark, malty bombshell of a beer.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Slips from the growler a very dark ruby-hued body with a smallish, faintly beige-tinged head.

Aroma: Sweetish aroma of dark brown sugar, caramel, toasty malts, and ripe plums, with a teensy sniff of well-applied smoke and an appeased roasty accent.

Taste: A deep, welcoming maltiness, from brown sugar to toasted malt to caramel, with a hint of darkened barley. Touch of dark fruitiness akin to a bit of fresh plum. Thin sliver of clean smokiness. Low earthiness and a subtle herbal hint to the hops, with a subdued bitterness, leaving it fairly sweet throughout, though not cloying. A further hint of fruit, some very faint alcoholic heat, and still a deep sweetness on the smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: A quality scotch ale. It's got an inviting richness to it without being bloated and enough soothing alcohol without being boozy or putting me in a coma for the evening. Yes, it's fair to say I enjoyed it.

About Monday Night Brewing
Monday Night Brewing is an Atlanta-based craft beer company. We currently offer two delicious styles of beer on draft in select Atlanta establishments.

Believe it or not, the idea for Monday Night Brewing grew out of a small Atlanta Bible study. We started brewing beer together on Monday nights as a way to get to know each other better. As we got more engrained in the industry and more people started showing up to brew with us, beer quickly became more than just a weeknight hobby.

We spent almost 5 years perfecting our Eye Patch Ale and Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale before bringing them to market. Years of minor tweaks, arguments over hop profiles, and experiments with different brands of base malts are poured into every glass that we brew.
