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.

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.

bhensonb (14073) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. Date seems to be 100308. Pours a dark coppery amber with a frothy off-white head. Smells malty/treacly. Medium body with frothy carbonation, but it somehow seems thinnish. Flavor is treacly and fairly roasted caramel. It’s sweet, though not sticky sweet. Finish is hardly bitter, but this one works. It has a lot of flavor. It’s really very drinkable. Something in it makes up for the lack of bitter - and strangely enough something like bitter developed on the edges of my tongue after awhile. Interesting stuff.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Tap at Brown Dog’s. A thick aroma of molasses and tar. Flavor like a porter mixed with an American Strong. A reasonably dark beer with fairly sweet tendencies, but unlike most Scotch ales.

Goodgrief (1994) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Dark amber pour, little head or lacing. Aroma wasnt’ good...like burnt cardboard. Flavor wasn’t as bad as the odor (which is what you call bad aroma). Dry, little sweetness with heavy malts (how did they keep the sweetness out?). I didn’t like this at all. Not worth finishing the bottle.

Drake (11751) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Bottle from a friend. Best by 11/23/08. Pours a clear ruby red with a medium head. Low retention and lacing. Fruity, malty aroma with a nutty note and some hop presence. Very malty and earthy taste. A green-apple, citrus fruitiness and light hoppiness. Full bodied.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2008
This is a great scottish ale, with malty flavors of nuts and chocolate, but still with a hoppy side which gives you a nice balanced taste. The color is a great deep red, a very enjoyable beer.

Surprisingly complex, hoppy but well balanced with other grains and malts, creates a crisp dark ale.
