Great Scottish ales are prized world-wide. Our version pours a dark, ruby red with a rich malty character that you won’t forget.

Ruby red poor with slight head that dissipated quickly. Smokey flavour with a hint of grilled apple. Slight carbonation and some hoppy tones. Smooth and worth 90 shillings.

7/21/2007: Columbus 90 Shilling Ale is malty with a mild sweetness and flavors of chocolate and a hint of dry smoke. The finish is quite dry. This beer is brown with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Medium body, smooth on the palate.

Draught at Casa Nueva Cantina in Athens, Ohio during the Ohio Brew Week 2007. Rating #16 for this beer...

Served a clear yet thick ruby-hued mahogany with an off-white halo. Peaty-smoked nose with sweet, fruity malts pushing thru. Dry, fluffy mouth. Mid-bodied with a rich flavor of bittersweet malts, light smoke & light German bittering. Long-lasting flavors.

From notes. As the bottle states, this pours a dark ruby red with a with a huge three fingers worth of foam, even with a gentle pour. The head takes a good while to fade to a thick cap, leaving behind a solid sheet of lace. Smell; rich caramel and bread dough malts stand pretty nicely, with a bit of a nutty aroma as well. Behind everything though, is a dusty/yeasty aroma that throws it all off a bit. Taste; caramel, toffee and toasted biscuits get things started, but there’s also a bit of roasted coffee bean flavor as well. Not much in the way of a hop presence, but I wasn’t really expect much to begin with, and in the finish there’s a nice earthiness that I’m really liking right now. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly biting carbonation, and a pretty good drinkability. A bit of a different take on a Scottish ale, and a beer that might not work for me every day, but it did today.

Draft from a Growler. Poured with a small frothy, light brown head. Tasted initial of toasted maltiness and a lith hoppy finish. Was very good though alittle flat, because the growler fell over on the ride home.

Massive malt of the nose. Clear copper in color. Nice! Roasted, smokey, scotch flavor. One of the better scottish ales i’ve had.

Dorwart (2497) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Giant, light brown head. Dense and creamy on top. Large and fluffy bubbles below. Good carbonation. Reduces slowly. Fresh cut grass, sweet malts and a hint of smoke. Some vegetal also. Color is a dark brown. Dry and malty with a hint of roastyness. Some unpleasant bitterness in there also. More vegetal overtones and a smoky dryness. Palate is not very pleasing. Finish is dry and bitter. This beer is not as good as the score dictates.

blkitson (158) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Pours a beautiful chocolate color with a nice head. There is a sweet taste to it but I wouldn’t necessarily say a chocolate tase. Not really too heavy and actually quite good

Braudog (6196) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Draft 4 oz sample at the brewpub 10/23/06: dark red with a thin wisp cloud on top. Sourness comes on the first swallow -- over the top of a moderately meavy roasiness, almost to the level of a bitter java. Sourness mellows.

I was a big fan of Hoster’s 90 Shilling Ale when it was around, so seeing another Columbus brewer creating the same style was kind of exciting. The beer is a dark brown-amber with a medium thick light tan head that has pretty good retention. Roasted malt aroma is very prevalent, along with a bit of hops. Medium-bodied with a sweet malty character, plus some caramel and bitter hops. The finish is dry and sweet at first but ending up with a lingering bitterness. Pretty good all around.
