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.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Light brown in flavor with a quickly diminishing head. Smells malty. A little watery taste, not quite thick enough for my impression of a 90 shilling.

beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Copper color with almost no head. A slight malt aroma. Spritzy on the tongue, with a slightly thin body. Sweetish on the start and drying on the finish. Some hop bitterness. So so scotch.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Plums, figs and caramel are the main components of the aroma. Deep maroon body with a tight, off-white head. Heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet finish. Medium-heavy body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: not bad by any means, but just not exciting.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2004
A very dry start . Almost citrus in quality, and quite crisp. Fairly hoppy, not the best scottish ale, but it is still good.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2004
I didn't really like this. Came off a little too bland, and I think it could have had a bigger mouthfeel. Hard for me to believe this is a scottish ale. Decent hopping though.

This is a great ale. Perfect coloring, nice head and smooth flavors. Good one all around.

Larbytown (4) - Golden, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2004 does not count
nice brown clear colour, delicious head, nice lace work. Medium body, but nice flavour; a bit of the roasted barley taste

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Dark hazy reddish brown in color with a decent off white head that sticks to my glass. Bready and caramel aromas, starts sweet and creamy with a hint of caramel, medium bodied, nice creamy and round mouthfeel, finishes smooth and clean, another good one from this brewery, very drinkable.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Pours a deep amber color, with a rich frothy head, small and some light lacing. A very thin mouthfeel, with a medium body and a subtle malt character. This is not really what I would expect in a scotch ale, the aroma is very off and astrigent, just unbalanced, like most of the outings I have tried from this brewery.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Rich amber color with a small head but excellent lacing. Initial citrus aroma leaning towards grapefuit with some bready maltiness, brown sugar and butter notes. Nice caramel, toffee and grapefruit flavors with a medium dryish finish with a slight bitterness. Not really my idea of a Scotch ale but a well balanced and tasty brew anyway.
