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.

Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2013
On tap in a pint glass. Gorgeous copper color with a thick butter-hued head. The head had a really dense texture, similar to what one would expect from a nitrogen-charged tap. The mouthfeel was thick and velvety. The taste was nuanced with a range of flavors, heavy on a gentle malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At the brewery late on a Saturday afternoon. An amber gold with a thin off white head. Biscuit and bitterness in the aroma. The flavor is sweet malty molasses & biscuity malts. Crisp clean finish on a medium body, a nice Scottish Ale.

Tasted from can. Pours a clear brown Amber with thick off white head. Tons of lacing. Mild nutty and caramel aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with minimal to no bitterness. Flavors of caramel, toffee, maple syrup and a little nuttiness. Very well done for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rhombic (87) - SPAIN - APR 19, 2016
[Letís go with this one, looking forward to it!] Bottle, 355mL. Pours a distinctive brownish amber, copper like as I saw someone saying, nice off-white head with fabulous lacing. Floral aromas, with a subtle cigar-like bite to it, soft pineapple and some other fruitiness, not to estery but really nice, not overpowering at all. The hop profile in the flavour is NOT the typical all-Cascade IPA that leaves you with that terpene shot right in your face. May I add that, while that is a safe bet, flavours like those in this beer are more interesting to explore and very much enjoyable too. Just a bit on the soft side maybe? Thereís a certain woody character to it, with a bit of mild piquancy, pepper-like, well balanced. To find an imperfection, it does fall short on roundedness, which impacts the body that is mild to medium (especially because it quickly dissipates: it has flavour but on the short side). On palate itís -maybe surprisingly- rather dry, even a bit watery, not like those slick oily ales... Iím all in for the dryness but would have preferred a bit more texture in for it. Those sort of balance out, to be fair. Overall, refreshing and drinkable.

A crisp sparkling drink with a wonderful sharp quality to it. A part from its crisp bitterness it lacks complexity unfortunately.

MadRobin (2681) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - FEB 14, 2016
On tap at Zeb's in Angel Fire, NM, where it was served entirely too cold. Clear, caramel amber-red with a nice khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Flavor is much the same, although it gets more complex once it warms. Medium/full body and medium carbonation with a foamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
