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.

TAP: @Barleys. Nice amber color with medium-thick beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is thin but pleasant malt/hop. Taste is crisp, slightly dry palate without much complexity and short finish. Good to cool down with but not much more.

Very clean amber ale, much like an english style ale. Great beer if you are ever skiing in Vail or Aspen area, will definitely keep give you a nice end to the day.

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear amber and smells mainly of caramel malt. Despite the name, scottish ale seems like a bit of a stretch. It seems to be closer to another amber ale. The caramel malt is joined by some light hops. Its certainly quaffable, but also unremarkable.

A nice amber ale. Pretty much on tap everywhere in Denver.Very malty, rich and easy drinking. Could use a tad more finishing hops. Drinks well in the summer or winter.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Caramel and burned toast on the nose. Deep amber color. Sweet, with a not terribly pleasant smokiness, and not a lot of balance. Body is decent, finish is abrupt. There are better Scotch Ales out there.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2010 Bottle in Breck. Pours clear brown with orange highlights. Small off-white head with nice lacing. Very light aroma with a little sweet caramel. Light flavour with notes of floral hops and stronger malt. Good but not remarkable.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2010 Odell 90 Shilling Ale -- 3/4/2008 from 12 oz. bottle . . . Aroma: Slightly sweet; Biscuity malt; Some yeast. Appearance: Clear; Medium chestnut brown color; Thin off-white head with good retention; Some lacing. Taste: Light to medium sweet; Biscuity; Some caramel and toasted malt. Palate: Medium body; Good carbonation; Smooth; Sweet, somewhat weak, finish. Overall: This is an OK beer, just not really to our liking. Like the idea of a "lighter" Scottish Ale, but this just didnt work for us. Definitely worth a try, but not one wed buy again.

So, the 90 Shilling (bottle) poured a sweet-lookin chestnut with a hefty, white head. The aroma was a little floral, a little syrupy, a little nutty. The taste wasnt too hoppy, but it had sufficient bite. The malty flavors hit me more than anything else, but something vaguely reminded me of a barley wine ale. The 90 Shilling isnt exactly mind-blowing, but its on par with other Odell beers.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Bottled, BB 11/7/07. Poured clear, medium coppery-amber with a fluffy cap of beige head. The aroma picked up very sweet, very toasted caramel, buttered bread, and ample smokage.. the prevalence of the sweetness put me off a bit. The flavor was about as expected, with toasty caramel and a touch of darker fruit at the core.. some light smoke, but mostly sticky sweets.. just not very good. About medium-bodied and tacky at times on the palate with higher carbonation.. just didnt do it for me.
