COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

scoth (662) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear amber brown with a medium beige head, good lacing. Smells of figs, caramel, and nuts. Medium-thin body, crisp. Malty flavor, much like the aroma, with just a little pine hop flavor and a mild bitter aftertaste. Balanced and drinkable.

drjay44 (3302) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick head, good retention, nice lacing over a clear light brown body...nose of roasted malts, with some coffee aromas, caramel....tastes initially of sweet roasted malts, then hops begin to dominate....mouth feel is creamy because of the lovely carbonation. The whole presentation was light for a Scottish Ale, but I think brewers hit what they were aiming for in a "medium bodied amber ale".

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2008
G.A.B.F. 2008: Deep copper with a tan head. Toasted and peated malts in the aroma- earthy with a brown sugar hint. Has a creamy feel. The flavor offers some cocoa, toasted hints and an earthy peat and mildly earthy smoky finish. Pretty decent.

TKA300 (105) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Very, very dark in appearance. Extremely drinkable, yet very filling. Very thick off-white head. Smells slightly of caramel. Kind of a dry finish on the palate.

On tap. Pours a clear amaber color with a good size whiteish head. Smells a little of hops and burnt sugar. Tastes like it smells. Not bad not great.

Darker amber pour with nice off-white head. I noticed a good big of hops at first with some sweet malt and a touch of roast. Flavor had some caramel hints with a good bit of hop bite to it. Nice carbination also.

this beer is refreshing. i needed a refreshing beer after my travels from texas to colorado. we arrived at our dear friends house to find cold o’dells in the fridge. i did not tarry to crack open a bottle of 90 Shilling - finding it far more complex, enjoyable and relaxing than i ever remembered. slightly bitter hop notes lay atop a caramelly sweet bed of roasted malts. strong thick khaki-colored head, counted down my much needed sips on the edges of the glass. reddish hue, brick like bent of light, architecturally solid column of pure all-out-ale, little carbonation, few bubbles in the foundation, hidden aroma, quasi-polar hop and malt flavors subtly revealed by consecutive sips and chews. i wanted this beer with a fine homemade pizza or grilled reuben club. this beer may have not been designed to stand alone. still, after the two days i just weathered, i liked it. and i poured a second very quickly.
