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.

This has a warm place in my heart because it was one of my first "favorites." I like this more than fat tire, just because it’s got more to it. It pours brownish-amber with a so-so head. Malt in the aroma with some slight hop presence. The taste is balanced as well. Rich for an amber but balanced by some decent bittering hops. Finish is good, mouthfeel quite nice. Not a particularly amazing beer but solid and nice.

A very dry start . Almost citrus in quality, and quite crisp. Fairly hoppy, not the best scottish ale, but it is still good.

Tap: pours amber color. Malty taste with a hop compliment. Nothing too rememberful (actual word) but nice beer. I may have to re-rate this eventually.

It’s a bit thin, but it does have some malt flavor. Aroma is somewhat underwhelming but some good malt character does shine through. Overall, the thin finish is the most disappointing part... but hey, it’s beer!

Bottled (with thanks Slothgar T.): Light and easy-drinking. A mild nose of malts and hops; flavorful (and same) on palate. Clean finish. Dark golden color.

Pours amberwith no significant head. Nose is malty and sweet, like citrus/grapefruit. Flavor is mild caramel and raisiny. Finish is lightly sticky.

Pint glass pour at Sweeney’s. Copper color with steady head. Aroma filled with malt and taste follows suit. Some hops present. A very sessionable ale. Easy to drink with a positive finish. Odell does better but a great fall back.
