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.

Pale bronze poor with thin white head. Caramel and brown sugar notes on the aroma. Mild bitterness with good carbonation gives the bear a nice kick.

Lonick (1029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle @home. Pours copper almost red. Nose is malty, sweet, grass, slight wood, caramel, slight spice. Taste is more of the same but with more toffee and an but not unpleasant metallic finish.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pale amber with off-white head. Faint malt and hop aroma. Taste: Mild malt, a hint of bitterness. Overall, pretty bland, but light and very drinkable.

darbeer75 (30) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Aroma: Roasty, bready, slightly funky; Appearance: thick, pillowy head that dissipates quickly with a little lacing; clear, amber color; Taste: surprisingly lager-like, a little sweet and a little skunky; smooth with lighter body than appearance would indicate; light body with short finish and flat carbonation; Overall: disappointing; would not buy again.

Proving beer doesnít have to be "big" to be good. Very smooth and easy to drink start to finish. Nice mix of mostly citrusy and a little sprucy hops balanced with the more evident malt. Very short head, but stuck around.

Pre-pour thoughts. Cool bottle and labeling. Especially the bottle, with the neat neck.

Pours a copper/amber color. Barely any head, but nice and clingy. Not well filtered, lots of floatiees in there.

Aroma is floral and malty. Itís also a little piney. It smells bready and sweet. It smells really good.

Taste is well balanced. Itís pretty malt heavy, but itís slightly hoppy. Just enough hops to keep the malts from being too much. Itís slightly fruity. I taste pretty hefty toffee and caramel notes, maybe a little cocoa. Cocoa mind you, not chocolate. Finishes slightly hoppy bitter. Thereís a lot of flavor, but thereís nothing crazyily overdone.

Mouthfeel is very nice. Itís a very smooth. Itís also creamy. Itís a little dry, and also maybe a little oily. Pretty sessionable.

Overall, this is really good. Itís not as hard as a regular scottish ale. I guess we can call it Scottish Light. Quite flavorful, and drinkable. Well worth a try.

Malty but light malty, nice malt and toffee aroma. Pretty darn crisp and clean, a little light, but in the end good malty beer and very refreshing.

ScipioA (403) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Amber body with an off-white head and a slight maroon tinge. Aroma is a little strong on the booze for a 5.3, but has some tasty roasted notes too. Flavor is a little bit softer with a sweet caramel body and some floral hops.

Amber in color, wimpy head. Aroma of tea leaves and mildly roasted malts. Taste was straight forward, malt heavy, medium bodied with tobacco notes. Easy, easy to drink. A session version of the style?
