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.

Nice deep amber color with a small head that laced forever. Aroma is malty. Very smooth flavor

A medium body amber ale with smooth but not powerful flavor. It has a crisp dry taste, not very malt rich. A smooth hop finish. Not my favorite, but is a good beer.

This is a pretty decent ale. Crisp with a good, full-bodied character. Not exactly up to par with the real deal from Scotland – but good. We got a pony keg of it for a party and it’s a great drinking beer. Nice compromise between a full-bodied amber and something you can continuously drink all night without getting too full. I would put this as my third favorite from Odell after their Cutthroat Porter and Easy Street Wheat.

Mountain Brewers Beer Fest 2006. Lack of appearance judging reflects opaque plastic sampling cup. Only average brown ale, a style I’m not a huge fan of to begin with.

This is a Scottish Ale? I would have pegged this as an American Pale, certainly not an Amber Ale which is what it states on the label. Piney hops and light on the malt. A little fruit and spruce in the nose. I like it better than their wheat beer.

On tap at their tasting room. They call this a Scottish? Def. thought it was more of an Amber....pretty light in taste. Decent beer, though one of the weakest I tried at Odell.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Re-rate: 10/22/12: wow I had no idea I had this beerbefell before it was available in the Twin Cities market. And from my original rating it appears it’s a good thing I’m re-rating it. Plain, roasted malt aroma. 4/17/06: MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering ’06. Bland, blah flavor. Cardboard consistency. Not good, amateurish, flavorless. I’m guessing I had a bad one. Dark amber body. Malty but with a hop profile a little stronger than typical for the style. A very good Scottish ale with moderat sweetness and great drinkability.

Nice brown pour, beige head - takes a while to go down. Aroma is light, but has a sweet creaminess with toffee and a hint of chocolate. Taste is not as rich as the aroma - more of a dry taste with a grassy hop finish. Further down the glass the beer smooths out with more of the toffee flavor coming to the front. An interesting interpretation. This would make a nice session beer.

Clear and copper body wears a delicately laced off-white head, clinging completely to the glass sides while resuming to a thin lasting cover. Rather earthy flavor profile shows soft leafy and citrusy hops in the nose, paired with a relatively dark malt taste compared to the color, closing on meatiness. Little fruitiness is at stakes here, but you can dream of orange hints with an effort, while most of the aromas hang around a buttered hazelnut and cerealic, bready and bordering worty range. Rather easy to drink, but pretty plain and more fruits would be enjoyed. Watery texture, very thin bodied yet with a strong carbonation, well distributed that gives a sense of amplitude.
