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.

Pours a dark amber with a small, creamy, white head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet malt with earthy notes. Flavor is of caramel, malt, some earthy notes, tea, and hints of wood. Smooth medium body with medium carbonation. Quite tasty.

12 oz bottle pours a clear copper body with small khaki head that deposits attractive clingy lace. Aroma of toffee, red apples and oranges. Very tasty profile! Malty toffee mingles with the fruity hops to prduce an exquisite balance. Very nice.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2003
All I can say is nice try. ALmost an off aroma. Not much, if any malt flavor throughout. Not even what I would consider a good attempt at a Scottish Ale.

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2010
My go to session when I’m in Colorado and head and heels above Fat Tire in the essential "Colorado" beer in my opinion. A nice malty, caramel sweet finish that leaves you wanting more.

gorditoabd (634) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle at Embassy Suites bar in Denver. Pours caramel red-brown. Little foam. Decent sweet malt aroma, some nuttiness in nose and initial taste. Light body, but pleasant. A nice, easy drinker good to go with a sandwich or something of the sort,

Draft, pours a medium copper with white head. Taste is caramel malts, toffee, sweetness. Kind of like a Fat Tire, only better.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Deep amber. The nose is great here showing cigar box. The beer also shows a distinctive black tea flavor on the palate. The problems lie in the watery, somewhat flat mouthfeel and short clipped finish. Big points for uniqueness, takeaways for mouthfeel issues.

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.
