COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volume 6: Traditionally, the Scotch call this beer 90 shilling. At Terrapin, we know it as “90 Shelling.” Magnificently malty, this 90 Shelling Scotch Ale pays tribute to the full bodied ales of Scotland.

The pour reveals a cloudy brown color with a thin offwhite head. Decent aroma of fruits, caramel and malt. The flavor has toffee, fruits and malt, it’s a bit buttery too and very sweet. The body is medium with a liquorous texture and soft carbonation.

Beer pours a very dark brown with a nice head that quickly dissipates. On the nose caramel, yeast, malt and dough. Palate is more caramel malt, and a touch of sweetness that is pleasant. A good beer, Terrapin is getting better and better.

Bottle from craftbeerdesign. Thanks again guy. Great trader are you. Pours very dark brown with a slight off-white head. Aroma is malt and a bit of heat. Full bodied with mild creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit cola, mayhap more than a bit, with hints of roast malt and smoke. Nice ale indeed.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Enjoyed at the Flossmoor Station RB tasting, 1/16/2010: This poured a clear medium brown body with a white head. The aroma was malty, caramel with a hit of butterscotch, and had a touch of light stone fruit. It seemed a bit thin for the style. And it was too sweet for the style, caramel/toffee/butterscotch with a soft grassy bitterness that enters near the end. Okay and has a clever name, but I was hoping for more.
