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 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.

this beer has a rich and complex flavor most like a good Scotch ale. the nose has hints of fruit. there is a small head and carbonation is fine bubbles and moderate in amount. the flavor is dominated by malt with a side of bitterness. This is an excellent ale and a keeper.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2005 Draught. Clear brown body and nice soft carbonation. This beer has qualities of fruity malts, subtle hops, and some light smokiness. Very smooth palate with a crisp and pleasing aftertaste. A decent, locally available session beer.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2003
Glorious amber brown under a medium sized light yellow head. Strange lighter malt and a faint citric almost foot yeast like lambic aroma. Medium creamy ale style body. Light bitter stronger malt flavoured start and middle flavours, yeastier finish and mild sweet aftertaste.

Acquired via trade. I like getting my hands on 90 Shilling beers, as I am a fan of the style. I didn't think this one was quite as good as Hoster's version but it was decent. Pours a dark amber color with a medium beige head and thin lacing. Earthy malt aroma. Body is fairly rich, with flavors of malt, caramel and a little fruit. Finish is lightly bitter. Overall pretty good.

Didn't read the label prior to drinking or frankly rating. I was all set to rate a good ale or pale ale. I would have been fairly malty for ale or pale, not malty or sweet enough for what I would expect of a Scottish Ale. So I guess I saying I enjoyed this beer, but I don't think it is a very good example of a Scottish Ale.

From a bottle so I could not cooment on color or head. Cookie aroma, Malty flavor with slight bitter hoppiness lingering. Good beer. Will try it again in a glass or from tap.

Had on tap: This one was fairly dark. Thick head. A good and satisfying brew. It's pretty cool to because I read that Odells brews all their stuff traditionally, abiding by the purity laws.
