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.

Colour of spiced apple cider, or even a dark rum. Light aroma and taste. Malty with bananna and a finish of somewhat bitter hops.

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.

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.

This is one of my all-time favorites. Straight out of Ft. Collins comes one of the best brews in the state. Very unique hoppiness...smooth finish.

Bottle. Pours a reddish amber but without much head. Aromas of fruit in the nose. Thick, creamy, lightly carmelized notes. Light for the style, but did not mind as I don’t typically enjoy scotch ales. This is very drinkable.

Certainly plenty of malt to go around in both aroma and flavor — as a Scottish style ale should have. Mostly sweet with fruit notes. Then there are the hops, present in both aroma and flavor and especially in the noticably bitter bite in the aftertaste. A good, flavorful brew with a nice balance between malt and hop, but I am not sure this is true to the style, though I would not hesitate to drink another.

12z bottle. Garnet hue with spotty off-white head. Sweet caramel malt nose with a slight note of citrus. Medium body and mouthfeel. Flavors are of caramel and slight coffee. Medium malt roast. Great bitter flavors from both the coffee aspect and from the hops. Weel rounded and balanced. Both the malts and the hops play a substantial part. For the first few sips, the hops were rather dominant, in the finish. As it comes to temperature, the hops mellow and the sweet malts permeate. I fell in love with this beer and the brewery about three years ago. This is a great beer and perfect for this time of year. (Winter in St. Louis). I do and will continue to recommend his brew to my friends and anyone else.
