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.

A very dry start . Almost citrus in quality, and quite crisp. Fairly hoppy, not the best scottish ale, but it is still good.

I didn't really like this. Came off a little too bland, and I think it could have had a bigger mouthfeel. Hard for me to believe this is a scottish ale. Decent hopping though.

This is a great ale. Perfect coloring, nice head and smooth flavors. Good one all around.

Larbytown (4) - Golden, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2004 does not count
nice brown clear colour, delicious head, nice lace work. Medium body, but nice flavour; a bit of the roasted barley taste

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Dark hazy reddish brown in color with a decent off white head that sticks to my glass. Bready and caramel aromas, starts sweet and creamy with a hint of caramel, medium bodied, nice creamy and round mouthfeel, finishes smooth and clean, another good one from this brewery, very drinkable.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Pours a deep amber color, with a rich frothy head, small and some light lacing. A very thin mouthfeel, with a medium body and a subtle malt character. This is not really what I would expect in a scotch ale, the aroma is very off and astrigent, just unbalanced, like most of the outings I have tried from this brewery.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Rich amber color with a small head but excellent lacing. Initial citrus aroma leaning towards grapefuit with some bready maltiness, brown sugar and butter notes. Nice caramel, toffee and grapefruit flavors with a medium dryish finish with a slight bitterness. Not really my idea of a Scotch ale but a well balanced and tasty brew anyway.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2003
All I can say is nice try. ALmost an off aroma. Not much, if any malt flavor throughout. Not even what I would consider a good attempt at a Scottish Ale.

Beaver (1296) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Dark reddish amber color with a nice medium head. Aroma has subtle hints of citrus and caramel. Nice tasting with hints of fig and a good hoppy finish. A very drinkable beer - one of my old reliables.

amber/bronze color with big-bubbled white head. plenty of both malt and hops in the aroma. aroma has that women's hair permanent solution smell....wish i could put my finger on it exactly, but i like it. flavor is nice and citrusy with a slightly bitter finish. i like.
