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.

Ahhhhhh. Again light, clean, very drinkable with great malt sweetness (Scottish influence) and English hops balance. Good copper hint to the taste that gives it a bite.

Rhombic (87) - SPAIN - APR 19, 2016
[Letís go with this one, looking forward to it!] Bottle, 355mL. Pours a distinctive brownish amber, copper like as I saw someone saying, nice off-white head with fabulous lacing. Floral aromas, with a subtle cigar-like bite to it, soft pineapple and some other fruitiness, not to estery but really nice, not overpowering at all. The hop profile in the flavour is NOT the typical all-Cascade IPA that leaves you with that terpene shot right in your face. May I add that, while that is a safe bet, flavours like those in this beer are more interesting to explore and very much enjoyable too. Just a bit on the soft side maybe? Thereís a certain woody character to it, with a bit of mild piquancy, pepper-like, well balanced. To find an imperfection, it does fall short on roundedness, which impacts the body that is mild to medium (especially because it quickly dissipates: it has flavour but on the short side). On palate itís -maybe surprisingly- rather dry, even a bit watery, not like those slick oily ales... Iím all in for the dryness but would have preferred a bit more texture in for it. Those sort of balance out, to be fair. Overall, refreshing and drinkable.

A crisp sparkling drink with a wonderful sharp quality to it. A part from its crisp bitterness it lacks complexity unfortunately.

MadRobin (2657) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - FEB 14, 2016
On tap at Zeb's in Angel Fire, NM, where it was served entirely too cold. Clear, caramel amber-red with a nice khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Flavor is much the same, although it gets more complex once it warms. Medium/full body and medium carbonation with a foamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a beautiful Amber red. Taste is very smooth and goes down well. The drink is balanced well overall and neither the sweetness of bitterness takes over. Enjoyable and could easily drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A third giving from doug odell himself. Pours a copper with a thin head. Loads of toffee on the nose. Quite a sweet toffee flavour too. All their beers appear to be sweet.

Plenty of caramel, slightly toasty. Not much else going for it. Might be my mood at the time but not really for me.
