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.

on tap - a pleasant looking and tasting beer falling somewhere between brown and amber ale. Not as heavy as one might expect from the name, only mild similarity to a scottish ale.

A good beer overall. Nice flavor and aroma. I was quite suprised actually.

Amber color with a smallish head. Mild orange citric and brown sugar aroma. Slightly papery (oxidized). Caramel malt with a touch of peat/earth. Acridity in the finish also takes away from some of the qualities. Had this one from a bottle (bottled 3/9/02). I would wager that this is much better on tap.

NeroFiddled (105) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2002
Orange-brown in color with a cream colored head that holds up fairly well and leaves some nice Belgian-lace. The aroma is really pleasing with a sweet, maltiness that contains caramel, toffee and a touch of fruitiness. Almost like a combination of Munich and Brown malts, but not quite. Rich, but not aggressive. The body and carbonation level are appropriate. The flavor starts malty and fruity, dries a bit at mid swallow, and then gives a spritz of hop flavor before leading into a lightly bitter dryness. Quite Scottish in nature up to a point, but I find the hop flavor unusual. The choice of hops seems a little odd. Still, a good beer.

Sort of a misnomer. A Scottish 90 Shilling would be an incredibly heavy beer. This is more of an amber ale with a hint of brown ale creeping in. Not too hoppy, but fairly good balance. This is a popular beer.

Similar to Fat Tire, but fuller and better tasting.

A great scottish ale. Obviously too light to be a 90/-, but none the less a decent drink. Much better on tap than bottled.

Fruity aroma, burnt-orange, amber colour, and fruity ale flavour. Decent, but not great.

Enjoyed this, a very nice Scottish Ale without a dominating alcohol flavor

A light beer, reminds me of a brown. Not overly hoppy nor malty. Almost watery mouth feel. But smooth.
