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.

Bottle from Mystery Swap 2.0. Hazy medium brown pour with 1-finger khaki head. Aroma of bready caramel malt, nuts, slight hops. Tastes caramel malty, but not richly malty, with some hops, mild tannins, slight almond and fruit notes. Not terribly complex.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Draught @ Falling Rock Tap House: Deep copper, fiery, moderate foamy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Seems like a Vienna malt on the nose, slight caramel, a bit roasty even.   Soft roasted malt tongue, fairly thick and rich, low hop profile.   Slightly nutty, but seems to be missing the peat and smoked aspect.   Warming, but no alcohol is noticed.   Very malty brew, but not that sophisticated.   Thick on the tongue, but a bit dissapointing overall.   Give me some Chub!

eaglefan538 (2898) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle purchased in Omaha. Poured a light brown color with a weak head and poor lacing. The aroma was light roast and smoke over a coffee type base. The flavor was coffee, licorice, ash, and other roast flavors, a bit astringent or rough, though. Finishes with a little bit of a citrus hop zing, but the malty side of this one was a bit disappointing, coming off more like a porter than a scottish ale (whereís the peat?).

Floral hoppy nose on this very brown pour. Faint seaweed flavor in the body with more hops and some malt. Not too great.

Brown body. A slightly hoppy beer that really just doesnít stand out. Maybe I would think of this as a better beer, but it was going up against some better competition and just fell a little flat. Nothing really offensive here, but not so memorable either.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Tap. Pours a hazy dark amber color with minimal off white head. Hardly any aroma, malt, some faint hops, peppery. Flavor is bland as well, caramel, malt, some hops. Palate is thin and watery, mildly carbonated, semi-malty finish. Boo.

Stine (1601) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2007
One of the plantiest brews Iíve ever tasted: Aromas of grasses and some minute malts are complemented by bark, seaweed, and...more grass. Definitely different but not entirely too bizarre.

shrubber85 (7732) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle (trade with ford9719). Very different aroma - lemon, green pepper or light jalapeno and leather. Hazy dark amber color with moderate head. Lightly sweet fruity flavor initial followed by a moderate malty flavor and ending with a hops and ash flavor. Different and really hard to compare to anything else Iíve drunk.
