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.

Dark amber in my chalice. I got a little foamy biege head when I poured it out of the bottle that settled into a fine whispy slick. Nutty grain nose. Caramel sweetness with some bread, nuts, and faint peat. As it warms the sweetness almost turns into white sugar. Struck me a thin for a Scottish ale.

dark amber in color. The aroma is of malts. The flavor is of sharp dry malts, and bread.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Sourish almond butter and marzipan and toffee chew smell and flavor with powdery yeast, light sulfur and phosphorus off-notes. Sourish stale malt and yeast powder flavor with a thin, watery body.

I have to say this is a terrific beer!!! Great flavors, mix hoppy citrusy, amber smoothness and nice bitter finish under the layers of flavors. This is a must for anyone who hasn’t had this style or tried this breweries products. Its great.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2004
Dark brown color with a tinge of hazy copper. Tan head with light lacing. The aroma is light but sweet with some malt & caramel. The flavor is balanced and nicely sweet with a light alcohol bite. Finishes fruity and zesty. quite good for the Denver airport.

Sweetness dominates the flavor, aroma and mouthfeel. Not much in the way of hoppy flavors or bitterness. The only detraction I find is a slight astringency.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 3, 2004
A dark gold-copper color. Very malty sweet. Nice malt aroma. Full mouth feel, without being a big beer. Could be a little richer, but still a routine favorite. Best on tap.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Light brown in flavor with a quickly diminishing head. Smells malty. A little watery taste, not quite thick enough for my impression of a 90 shilling.

beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Copper color with almost no head. A slight malt aroma. Spritzy on the tongue, with a slightly thin body. Sweetish on the start and drying on the finish. Some hop bitterness. So so scotch.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Plums, figs and caramel are the main components of the aroma. Deep maroon body with a tight, off-white head. Heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet finish. Medium-heavy body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: not bad by any means, but just not exciting.
