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.

Pours a beautiful rich copper with a substantial tan head that subsides fairly quickly. Medium lacing. Nose is malt with a hint of vanilla. Taste is crisp malt with a great hops blend. Mouthfeel is nice and the aftertaste is bright and fresh.

Certainly plenty of malt to go around in both aroma and flavor — as a Scottish style ale should have. Mostly sweet with fruit notes. Then there are the hops, present in both aroma and flavor and especially in the noticably bitter bite in the aftertaste. A good, flavorful brew with a nice balance between malt and hop, but I am not sure this is true to the style, though I would not hesitate to drink another.

12oz bottle -pours a rich tan head that laces and copper color. Aroma is nice medium malt-caramel, citrus/earthy hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, almost as much hops-earthy/leafy, nutty, roasty, later some citrus. Not quite balanced and a bit thin compared to aroma. OK carbonation. Thanks to chesky-SD via Joe-jwc215 for the trade.

Draft: Dark golden colored pour with little to no head. Hoppy, caramely aroma with sweet, malty, slightly bitter finish. I also liked this.

As amber ales go, this beer has a stronger hop profile which is probably why I like it more that most. *cough* fattire *cough*

90 shilling is somewhat surprising. When you smell it, it smells malty, like you would expect from the style. When you drink it however, there is a distinct hop character, not aroma, character. It has a copper color, with a nice tan head. It is very drinkable and I really enjoyed the hops.

Pours brown with a little light tan head. Toffee aromas and flavors. Lightly hopped, clean. Not as syrupy-sweet as some Scottish ales, but quite filling. I can’t drink more than two in a row without feeling stuffed. Moderate finish with notes of butterscotch.

ChrisJ (100) - Warrenton, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Draft @ Blue Bonnet. Pours in amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty with notes of toffee and light hops. The flavor is more of the same. Although decidedly malty this beer does display some balance with its moderate hop flavors. Mouthfeel is medium and it finishes cleanly. A nice amber.scottish ale.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Pours amber with a decent head on it’s shoulders. Good head retention and lacing. Aromas of sweet caramel. Medium nectar with good carbonation. Mildly sweet and malty with peaceful bittering. It’s a watered down version of a Scottish ale with an almost crispness to liven it up and some biscuiting finishing up with faint traces of sweetness.

scooterbub (967) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light amber-brown with a thin tan head. Has a roasted malt, hop and smoke taste with a dry/bitter finish. The aroma is of smoke and hops. Pretty tasty, but is easy to drink as it is smooth. Pretty enjoyable, but it reminds me of Redhook’s Long Hammer IPA too much. Overall, there are better choices out there, which makes this a forgettable beer.
