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.

Not really what I think of when I think of a scottish ale. To me this was much closer to an amber lager or even an easy going APA. A bit light on the malt and a little heavier on the hops than expected.

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

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Draft: Dark golden colored pour with little to no head. Hoppy, caramely aroma with sweet, malty, slightly bitter finish. I also liked this.

Very earthy, with lots of malt flavors and aromas. Caramel, some roasted malts. Lots of body and enjoyable to drink.

arondee (599) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Pours a nice caramel brown color with an off white small head. Aroma is lots of malts and yeast. The taste is nuts, roasted malt, and some chocolate. Not a strong beer by any means, easy to drink, a good session beer. Pretty good but not fantastic.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber but without much head. Aromas of fruit in the nose. Thick, creamy, lightly carmelized notes. Light for the style, but did not mind as I don’t typically enjoy scotch ales. This is very drinkable.

Johnstledger8 (593) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Dark Amber colour with a white head that clears quickly. Smells like toffee, caramel and forest fruits. Not as hop dominant as other amber ales. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Very refreshing and smooth.

gringo332 (587) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Pours a clear amber colour with almost white head that persists. Aromas of vanilla and caramel. Mild carbonation and bitterness with smooth finish. Very drinkable beer.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 15, 2005
The bottle poured a clear dark amber colored beverage with an nice thick off-white head that was mostly lasting and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was dominated by the presence of malt. It was like putting my nose in a bag of crystal malt. There was almost no evidence of hops. The body was medium-full with medium carbonation and a somewhat dry texture. The flavor starts off slightly sweet. It gains bitterness as it matures on the palate and the finish is long and warming.
