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.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2011
A dark reddish brown color with a medium tan head. The aroma is smoky and caramel. The flavor has a bitter chocolate and roasted quality and a kind of unpleasant finish. Nice consistency and lacing, but not a huge fan.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Malty, caramel notes in the aroma Medium amber color. Soft smooth texture. Malts, a little earthy. Lightly sweet. Easy drinking but not a session beer. Sits very nice on the palate.

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.

Tasted from can. Pours a clear brown Amber with thick off white head. Tons of lacing. Mild nutty and caramel aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with minimal to no bitterness. Flavors of caramel, toffee, maple syrup and a little nuttiness. Very well done for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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.
