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.

Malty in the nose. Not much to say about this beer. Little less hoppy than a pale. Flavour is enjoyable, but nothing to write about.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2007 Finally rated. Odell’s flagship. Copper ale that is usually enjoyable. Brown Coppoer thin head. Light molasses nose and very light smoky bbq taste on medium malty body. Always a good fall back beer, but rather over-rated.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2007
Clear amber body with a very small beige head. Generic malt caramel with almost no hop flavour. Medium sweetness. Medium carbonation. I really don’t have much else to say about it. This is a boring beer even by the style standard which is not exciting to start with. A little meaty (foie gras?) in the finish. Like the Shilling itself this beer should be retired.

robinvboyer (3257) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2007
bottle from Mondiale ’07. dark ruby color, thin beige head, good lacing. Very nice malty aroma, and also hoppy aroma. Flavour is incredibly balanced. This isn’t spectacular, but a perfect session beer!

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Poured a brownish color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, light chocolate, and roast as well. Taste of caramel malts, light chocolate, nuts, and light citrus as well.

Robe cuivrée claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche en dentelle qui s’estompe. Arômes légers de malt. Saveurs de malt, d’agrumes et de levures.

Picked this up at Hy-Vee, let it sit for a couple of months and poured it into an english pint. Has a hazy amber color with a 1 finger tan head. Floral hops immediate come out when pouring, followed by fresh grass and chocolate. Weak cohcolate milk (more milk than syrup), pine, light citrus, and a floral bitterness on the taste. Aftertaste of cereal malt, floral hops, and chocolate. A smooth medium palate and very light carbonation, almost as if it had been hand-drawn into the bottle. A delightful blend of sweet maltiness and light bitter hoppiness. The palate was easily my favorite part and really made this a great beer for me.

12 oz bottle. .. Lots of malt - nutty and earthy. Minor hints of hops. … .. clear, dark amber w/ Off-white head. . . Malty with some earthiness. .. Medium body, med. Carbonation. .. A decent beer, true to style, but is a little lacking. . .

theisti (3296) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Amberish copper color. Taste the malt right away, with a nice touch of hops. Sweet, caramel taste is there too. I was quite surprised by this one as I normally am so so with Scottish Ale.
