90 shilling is somewhat surprising. When you smell it, it smells malty, like you would expect from the style. When you drink it however, there is a distinct hop character, not aroma, character. It has a copper color, with a nice tan head. It is very drinkable and I really enjoyed the hops.

Pours brown with a little light tan head. Toffee aromas and flavors. Lightly hopped, clean. Not as syrupy-sweet as some Scottish ales, but quite filling. I can’t drink more than two in a row without feeling stuffed. Moderate finish with notes of butterscotch. ChrisJ (100) - Warrenton, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Draft @ Blue Bonnet. Pours in amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty with notes of toffee and light hops. The flavor is more of the same. Although decidedly malty this beer does display some balance with its moderate hop flavors. Mouthfeel is medium and it finishes cleanly. A nice amber.scottish ale.

Pours amber with a decent head on it’s shoulders. Good head retention and lacing. Aromas of sweet caramel. Medium nectar with good carbonation. Mildly sweet and malty with peaceful bittering. It’s a watered down version of a Scottish ale with an almost crispness to liven it up and some biscuiting finishing up with faint traces of sweetness. scooterbub (1082) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light amber-brown with a thin tan head. Has a roasted malt, hop and smoke taste with a dry/bitter finish. The aroma is of smoke and hops. Pretty tasty, but is easy to drink as it is smooth. Pretty enjoyable, but it reminds me of Redhook’s Long Hammer IPA too much. Overall, there are better choices out there, which makes this a forgettable beer.

pours a nice ruby color with a great head. nicely hopped, but not overly so for the style, caramel and a hint of dark malt make this beer a nice flavorful beer that goes with plenty of different foods restless7 (104) - Lenexa, Kansas, USA - APR 14, 2008
TAP: @Barley’s. 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. TimMoorstein (3) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2008 does not count
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. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2008
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. It’s certainly quaffable, but also unremarkable. jabrewing (11) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2008
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.
