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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Brow/red color,small head that faded quickly leaving little behind.Nice malty caramel aroma maybe some fruit in there,a slight yeasty hint and maybe even some alcohol but it’s very very faint.malty sweet taste up front with a nice caramel side.Just a hint of alcohol coming through in the middle but again as in the aroma its very faint.Nice mellow hop taste in the end with a slight bitter sweet finish.Very nice brew but i have to say the wheat was better IMO but this would do as well.Thanks go to Falconseye for another nice brew.

Aroma is that of sweetness and chocolate. Also a bit of caramel in the after taste. This is a nice scottish ale, of which i am partial too. A good sample of the scottish style brew .

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2004
On tap at Fat Alberts in Greeley, CO. The clear red/brown body is thcik and smooth with sweet caramel (too sweet after awhile). Very low hop presence here, but a nice malty drink otherwise.

A little thin once it hits the lips, but this is a big beer. I agree with another rater who tastes more alcohol than is in the beer. Also grains and decent hops. Little malt and smooth finish.

Terminus (3311) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 6, 2004
tap-some bar in Salida, CO-pours deep amber hue with minimal white head. Sweet malt, but no peat on the aroma. flavors are malty, earthy and sweet. palate is flimsy and not all together. needs work.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Slightly hazed dark reddish appearance, good head formation. Sweet toffee, caramel, biscuity, malt emphasised flavor. Good hop balance provides refreshing drinkability. Pretty good brew.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 28, 2004
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.
