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 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.

As has been said before, light for a 90 shilling, but extremely pleasant. Great to have with a friend.

TAR (2449) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 I think this is more of an amber ale. It has a little more hops than Shilling’s and not the fat, chewy body of a 90 either.

PhillyBeer2112 (2522) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2001
UPDATED: APR 29, 2006 A moderately hoppy amber ale, IMO. Nice crisp but understated hop aroma, and well balanced dryish flavor with some almost smoky undertones (but that could be false - given that I expected it to have a scottish ale flavor at first sampling)

This beer is the one that I order from my hometown. It doesn’t fit any traditional category. It mixes red, amber and IPA qualities. It is the beer drinker’s version of Fat Tire.

Excellent tasting beer! A great, easy-to-drink brew. It’s got a nice little ’nutty’ edge to it. If you like Fat Tire, you’ll love this.
