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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick head, good retention, nice lacing over a clear light brown body...nose of roasted malts, with some coffee aromas, caramel....tastes initially of sweet roasted malts, then hops begin to dominate....mouth feel is creamy because of the lovely carbonation. The whole presentation was light for a Scottish Ale, but I think brewers hit what they were aiming for in a "medium bodied amber ale".

G.A.B.F. 2008: Deep copper with a tan head. Toasted and peated malts in the aroma- earthy with a brown sugar hint. Has a creamy feel. The flavor offers some cocoa, toasted hints and an earthy peat and mildly earthy smoky finish. Pretty decent.

Very, very dark in appearance. Extremely drinkable, yet very filling. Very thick off-white head. Smells slightly of caramel. Kind of a dry finish on the palate.

On tap. Pours a clear amaber color with a good size whiteish head. Smells a little of hops and burnt sugar. Tastes like it smells. Not bad not great.

Darker amber pour with nice off-white head. I noticed a good big of hops at first with some sweet malt and a touch of roast. Flavor had some caramel hints with a good bit of hop bite to it. Nice carbination also.

this beer is refreshing. i needed a refreshing beer after my travels from texas to colorado. we arrived at our dear friends house to find cold odells in the fridge. i did not tarry to crack open a bottle of 90 Shilling - finding it far more complex, enjoyable and relaxing than i ever remembered. slightly bitter hop notes lay atop a caramelly sweet bed of roasted malts. strong thick khaki-colored head, counted down my much needed sips on the edges of the glass. reddish hue, brick like bent of light, architecturally solid column of pure all-out-ale, little carbonation, few bubbles in the foundation, hidden aroma, quasi-polar hop and malt flavors subtly revealed by consecutive sips and chews. i wanted this beer with a fine homemade pizza or grilled reuben club. this beer may have not been designed to stand alone. still, after the two days i just weathered, i liked it. and i poured a second very quickly.

Bottle from D&J Liquor in St. Louis, MO. Date seems to be 100308. Pours a dark coppery amber with a frothy off-white head. Smells malty/treacly. Medium body with frothy carbonation, but it somehow seems thinnish. Flavor is treacly and fairly roasted caramel. It’s sweet, though not sticky sweet. Finish is hardly bitter, but this one works. It has a lot of flavor. It’s really very drinkable. Something in it makes up for the lack of bitter - and strangely enough something like bitter developed on the edges of my tongue after awhile. Interesting stuff.

Tap at Brown Dog’s. A thick aroma of molasses and tar. Flavor like a porter mixed with an American Strong. A reasonably dark beer with fairly sweet tendencies, but unlike most Scotch ales.
