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.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Sample from 12 ounce bottle at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Clear copper with just a bit of lasting head, some lacing....indistinct, hazy aroma, perhaps some vague mild smokiness amidst wet, rather oily grains....body is dry and dull with mere hints of flavor, whispers of caramel and woody English hops show up then disappear quickly, fleeting, out of your grasp as you are desperate for flavor and eventually decide....next!

Good. Lots of spicy flavor. Maybe some cinnamon, brown sugar, allspice, chocolate and possibly even pumpkin flavors???? Would be a great thanksgiving brew.

extremeicon (112) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Very coffee-like aroma that I wasn’t expecting. Coffee also present in the taste along with a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Very smooth finish with little bitterness in the aftertaste.

natejgood (428) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUN 18, 2007
This beer pours a medium brown with a light head. The beer is relatively opaque. It smells a little hoppy and bitter. Not very much hoppy flavor at all after what I was expecting from the smell. A little malty. Tastes like a light brown ale. Kind of a middle of the road beer.

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.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2007
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 (6103) - 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 (3577) - 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 (5622) - Pennsburg, 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.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
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.
