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.

Slightly hazed dark reddish appearance, good head formation. Sweet toffee, caramel, biscuity, malt emphasised flavor. Good hop balance provides refreshing drinkability. Pretty good brew.

A cloudy brown with a hint of orange, looks like iced tea. Has a roasted nutty aroma. Not very rich, has a crisp dry taste. Bitter with hints of citrus and maybe even some iced tea flavor. It has a lack of real flavor.

I dont know what to think about this beer. It isn’t horrible and it isn’t good. I wouldn’t buy it again but I wouldn’t say it sucked. This was my first Scottish Ale.

Pours amber with a fluffy off white head. I can’t really smell anything except a light vinegar smell. Low malts, low hops. Decent body. Not much in the finish. Kind of disappointing.

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.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2004
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.

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.
