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.

Bottle at home. Pours a medium copper with minimal head/lacing. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is malty with minimal bite of hops. Finish is easy with hints of fruit and spice on the tongue. Good beer.

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Easy drinking scottish ale. Caramel malt aroma with a tinge of hops. Coppery color with a tan foamy head. Average-weight palate with a certain smoothness. Calming flavors of strong malts up front but not too sweet. Slight hops bitterness to balance. Easy to drink more than one.

"Classic scottish style ale. Copper color. Sweet leaning with some dark fruits, toffee and a hint of peat in the nose. Flavor much the same. Sessionable yet complex."

Tselloufc88 (130) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from the Rugby tap. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Taste is quite heavy, more toffee and caramel coming through. Goes down smoothly. A bit basic, but still decent.

Ah, thank you, Arianna. This was poured into a thistle for review, but often had a couple in a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within a minute. The smell had a nice semi-sweet smoky meatiness to it. The taste was basically the same-with a decent sweet aftertaste to it. On the palate, this sat right at a medium on the body. Overall, good Scotch ale I could have again.

Block (1400) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2014
A crisp, refreshing, good hot day beer. A little bit of malt to give it the Scottish Ale flavor.

DocJitsu (951) - Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a golden amber color with a pull candy colored head. Light caramel notes on the nose. Carbonation burn across the surface of the tongue. Toasty caramel flavors.

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