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.

I have to say this is a terrific beer!!! Great flavors, mix hoppy citrusy, amber smoothness and nice bitter finish under the layers of flavors. This is a must for anyone who hasn’t had this style or tried this breweries products. Its great.

This is one of my all-time favorites. Straight out of Ft. Collins comes one of the best brews in the state. Very unique hoppiness...smooth finish.

Ahhhhhh. Again light, clean, very drinkable with great malt sweetness (Scottish influence) and English hops balance. Good copper hint to the taste that gives it a bite.

A slight malty sweetness makes this beer an easy drinking beer. Great with burgers

Classic in between beer. I like to hit this #2 of 3 between a lighter and dark. Pours copper $ pretty. A little hopiness at the end that dries out slightly smokey, roasting that malt. Nutty, malty, a fair deep amber ale half in it. A kind, fresh finish. I might detect a slight orange peel to it in a refreshing way. A Scottish beer, whatever the hell that means. Good shit. Beer is awesome.

This beer is the one that I order from my hometown. It doesn’t fit any traditional category. It mixes red, amber and IPA qualities. It is the beer drinker’s version of Fat Tire.

One of my favorites. I won’t embarrass myself by trying to explaing the textures, flavors etc. as that has already been covered. Suffice it to say i crave this beer after a long day at Target.
