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.

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.

Sweet malt with shiny of spice(?). Pours clear copper with a thick foamy off white head. Thin bodied. Earthy. A little edge on the finish. I'd kind of expect something called a "flagship" to have some kind of distinction. This is okay and everything but just that.

natejgood (397) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUN 18, 2007
This beer pours a medium brown with a light head. The beer is relatively opaque. It smells a little hoppy and bitter. Not very much hoppy flavor at all after what I was expecting from the smell. A little malty. Tastes like a light brown ale. Kind of a middle of the road beer.

keith0718 (395) - Kansas, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Decent ale. Nothing spectacular, but nothing to stick your nose up at. I would drink it again. Sweetness came out more as I got further into the beer. Nice aftertaste.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours a large, billowy, off-white head. Clear, reddish-brown body. Big caramel malt nose with milk chocolate notes apparent at arm’s length. Biscuity malt and spicy, earthy hops. Some bread crust and a touch of raisin. Pleasant, rich malt. Lots of chewy caramel flavor with some light toast and earthy hop. Nice, but not as layered and complex as the aroma. Medium bodied, average carbonation, malt forward with nice hop balance to keep the malt from overpowering. Clean finish. Overall nicely done and repeatable.

uhclem (378) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours a beautiful rich copper with a substantial tan head that subsides fairly quickly. Medium lacing. Nose is malt with a hint of vanilla. Taste is crisp malt with a great hops blend. Mouthfeel is nice and the aftertaste is bright and fresh.

ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle. Poured a light black color with a 1 finger tan head. Aroma of hops and malt. The taste of hops is there.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2007 Can’t believe I forgot to rate this beer, thank you DJ Yoga Jam for bringing this back for me. This is an interesting beer but not what I would call a great Scottish Ale. Page 339 OF MJ’s Great Beer guide and only 187 Classic Brews to go.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Pour a burnished copper, small head that fades to basically nothing. Aroma is very interesting - malt, cigars, peat, toasted grains. Taste is malt, nuttiness, a hint of caramel, a little hop spice, with a Michael thing on the long, slightly sticky aftertaste. This is very good.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - NOV 22, 2011
Deep copper, clear, small head (dissipates fast), mediocre lacing, malty nose, not very distinctive, slight metallic taste, semi-sweet and slightly bitter, short finish, soft carbonation and medium body. Not very distinctive at all.
