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.

Not really what I think of when I think of a scottish ale. To me this was much closer to an amber lager or even an easy going APA. A bit light on the malt and a little heavier on the hops than expected.

Skycast (7) - Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2006 does not count
The reddish-hued color appears lightly carbonated and has a small off-white head. It has a semi-sweet malty aroma with an almost citrusy undertone. Great combination of malt and hops upon first drinking with a slightly sweet after-taste; good balance for a Scotch ale. It is pleasing on the tongue, down the throat and after swallowing.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2006
2/15/06 (bottle): Poured brown with a red tinge and a airy, bodied head. Nice little caramel-y aroma. Bit watery. Nice crisp drinker of caramel, malt and a nice hop twist. Pretty good.

badgerben (4493) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 4, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2010 MN Winter Get Together, 2006: Dark gold color with no head. Slight hop aroma. Bitter taste (Goldings) with a dry malt body. It struck me as one dimensional and not really true to style. Weaker and hoppier than it should be. 6/3/6/3/14

Re-rating, May 14, 2010. Dark copper color with a medium head. Biscuity aroma. More biscuit, toast and bready malt flavor. Light caramel. A bit dusty. More bitterness than I would expect for a 90/-, though still very light. Quite enjoyable.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Colour of spiced apple cider, or even a dark rum. Light aroma and taste. Malty with bananna and a finish of somewhat bitter hops.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2006 Bottle shared with my firend Brian. Pours a medium reddish brown with an off white. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor of caramel, nuts, nuts, and a hint of tobacco. Just the right amount of sweetness. Very clean and smooth finish. This is one of the better American Scottish Ales I have had. Either that, or I was really drunk.

I really wanted to like this beer (there don’t seem to be enough good American craft beers of this style), and I mostly did. Nice deep copper color, nice malty aroma and taste. It definitely finished on the metallic side--great up fron and a little disappointing at the end.

2005 bottle. Mahagony color, lots of caramel, some fruit, toasty, on the sweet side. Finish is a little bitter. Thanks Drew.

Sincere (145) - wichita, Kansas, USA - JAN 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 This is an incredible Scottish Ale, straight out of Fort Collins. At the time of this review, I couldn’t give it good glass-pour treatment, so no head report, although the aroma is very malty and pleasurable. The before, mid, and finish are as smooth and as slightly-malted as you would expect from a great ale.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JAN 5, 2006
you guessed it amber fluid with an off white head. small notes of malt and flax in the nose. sweet slim roasted malt character and end notes of bitterness. average amber as most are.
