Richer than most amber ales, 90 Shilling is smooth & deeply satisfying, with a crisp, clean Colorado taste. The name comes from the old Scottish method of naming a brewery's beer, based on original gravity and resulting tax rating.

Bottle. Dark Amber colour with a white head that clears quickly. Smells like toffee, caramel and forest fruits. Not as hop dominant as other amber ales. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Very refreshing and smooth.

Bottle at home. Amber with a white head. Light-medium body. Pretty good. Worth every shilling indeed.

Luvystypotables (968) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Mild aroma of malt. Pours a reddish brown color with a short lasting white head. Sweet malt taste with a watery feel and a sugary finish.

Sweet malt with shiny of spice(?). Pours clear copper with a thick foamy off white head. Thin bodied. Earthy. A little edge on the finish. I'd kind of expect something called a "flagship" to have some kind of distinction. This is okay and everything but just that.

Easy drinking scottish ale. Caramel malt aroma with a tinge of hops. Coppery color with a tan foamy head. Average-weight palate with a certain smoothness. Calming flavors of strong malts up front but not too sweet. Slight hops bitterness to balance. Easy to drink more than one.

"Classic scottish style ale. Copper color. Sweet leaning with some dark fruits, toffee and a hint of peat in the nose. Flavor much the same. Sessionable yet complex."

Sammer (1079) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Taste is caramel, malt, grain, leather, hay and wheat. Smooth drinking beer. Nice.

Tselloufc88 (206) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from the Rugby tap. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Taste is quite heavy, more toffee and caramel coming through. Goes down smoothly. A bit basic, but still decent.

Bulk_Carrier (2581) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Ah, thank you, Arianna. This was poured into a thistle for review, but often had a couple in a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within a minute. The smell had a nice semi-sweet smoky meatiness to it. The taste was basically the same-with a decent sweet aftertaste to it. On the palate, this sat right at a medium on the body. Overall, good Scotch ale I could have again.

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2014
A crisp, refreshing, good hot day beer. A little bit of malt to give it the Scottish Ale flavor.
