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.

I have to say this is a terrific beer!!! Great flavors, mix hoppy citrusy, amber smoothness and nice bitter finish under the layers of flavors. This is a must for anyone who hasn’t had this style or tried this breweries products. Its great.

Bottle. This looked pretty darn good when I poured it. Disappointing beer though. Light caramel malt and toffee flavors as well as some hops lurking around, but this was thin and somewhat metallic tasting. Thanks for the bottle, Dad.

Caramel and burned toast on the nose. Deep amber color. Sweet, with a not terribly pleasant smokiness, and not a lot of balance. Body is decent, finish is abrupt. There are better Scotch Ales out there.

Nice deep clear amber pour with a finger of off-white head that quickly dissipated and left only light lacing. This is a nice session beer with its common ABV, nice fresh-baked bread aroma, and simple flavor of yeasty bread, slight hoppy bitterness, and touch of sweetness to balance it out. Unfortunately, being a nice session beer doesn’t make it a great beer. The thin, watery consistency and rather bland finish limit it to a nice easy-drinking brew.

Clear reddish amber, thin beige head, foamy lacing. Floral aroma. Taste is more balanced than aroma indicates. Medium-bodied.

SS. Pours a opaque reddish color with a white head. Aroma is mostly caramel and citrus. Hints of citrus fruits, malt, little hop, some floral notes. Finishes with a medium bodied malty citrus tang on the tongue.

Nice Amber ale, slightly sweet, chunky profile, autumnal, not very bitter, roasty, fairly decent.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - APR 15, 2002
A great scottish ale. Obviously too light to be a 90/-, but none the less a decent drink. Much better on tap than bottled.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Poured a hazy light brown with thick two fingers of head. The nose was of caramel, toffee, chocolate with a slight burnt aroma. The taste started with chocolate, tofee and raisin. Later came a strong caramel presence with an earthy hop bite. There were also notes of dark fruits and it was a bit bready at times. The finish was creamy with light hop bitters. The feel was medium to light. This was pretty tasty and goes down well. It’s not much of a Scotish Ale, it seems more like a robust Amber initially, then takes on some quasi-Scottish/Pale Ale feel. It’s pretty good, no matter what style you may end up setteling on.

12 oz bottle from Tournament. Caramel colored pour with an eggshell colored head. Malty, sweet, caramel aroma and the flavor is more of the same. Finish really brings out a caramel flavor. Very approachable beer for BMC drinkers and yet enough for seasoned beer drinkers to really enjoy as well!
