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 dark amber with a small-med head. No real aroma, not much of an aftertaste. Very much there in the moment, and the moment isnít too distinct. The taste is sweet and a little vomit flavored (sorry to be gross not sure how else to describe it...). The palate is zingy and sort of boozy. Not my favorite Odellís, I remember it being more interesting on tap, rather than poured from bottle.

Draft at brothers downtown Denver. Dark brown color with a scotchy taste and a malty backbone. Low abv for a scotch ale

BMMillsy (1322) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle poured to a pint glass at the Grand Hyatt lobby in Denver. Pours orange colored, clear, with a creamy off white head on top. Aroma of some caramel and bready malts dominate, with some light floral notes on the back end. Flavor is mostly caramel malts, bready, much like a scotch ale (this is my first "Scottish" ale). Finishes OK, with medium body and a bit of juiciness. Medium carbonation. Overall not my favorite beer but my first of the style and certainly not bad.

Bottle sample from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, brown sugar, earth, a hint of peat, light nutty character, thin and the flavor fades, while the nose is fairly weak.

12oz bottle, from Lukas Liquors in Missouri, purchased during my stay for RBSG. Bottle reads 5/16/14B. Purchased this less than a week ago, but unfortunately I think thatís a best-by date. Amber color, made hazy by lots of thicker chunks of yeast. Khaki head. Leaves good reaches of lace. Medium, kind of more full body. Smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Light slick texture. Good toasty, lightly spicy, caramel malt profile. Light earthy hop balances out the taste. Moderate bitter taste (more bitter than your typical scottish). Lighter sweet. Solid, tasty hoppier scottish. Good assertive taste to it. Nice to enjoy with my sandwich, although at times the flavor of the beer didnít stand up between bites.

Sweet malts and bread in the aroma. Taste has a cloying sweetness that I donít care much for.
