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.

3.5
CasperQuaffer (142) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Good head and good deep tan color. Aroma yeasty with almost a floral scent. Flavor good hops, citrusy with a slight toast. Well rounded on the palate. This was good with sirloin and steamed vegetables.

larsniclas (7193) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2007
Sampled at SBWF, 2007. Hazy, deep golden. Small white head. Sweet and hoppy with fine maltiness and a lot of sweet and dried fruits.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2009 Bottle thanks to BlackForestCO. Clear red/orange color. Weird funky sour stagnet water aroma. The taste is the same with peat and semi sweet malt finish.

2.7
IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 10, 2007
12 oz bottle from Cheyenne, WY; Nose of taosted nuts, caramel, and some peat; rusty-copper with a medium beige head; flavor of peaty malt, a bit of hop bitterness, and some woody oakiness. My fourth Scottish Ale , but not a real great one!

3.2
Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Pours a pretty, clear, reddish orange with a three-finger, frothy, beige head that leaves nice patchy lacing. The nose is more like a hoppy amber than a Scottish ale: toasted, bready malts with an earthy hop backing. Fairly light bodied and somewhat slick with no appreciable carbonation on the tongue, the mouthfeel concludes with a clean yet lightly dry finish. The flavor follows suit with the nose: toasted, bready and mildly sweet malt with a slightly peaty and dry finish (with herbal undertones). I’m not sure this is really a Scottish ale, but it’s a pretty decent brew whatever you call it.

3.4
rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2007
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2007) Bottle. Orange/amber color, small head. Maly, milky aroma, sweet fruits, raisins and some hoppy notes. Malty, fruity grassy and bitter finish.

3.3
Hoser (387) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2007 Can’t believe I forgot to rate this beer, thank you DJ Yoga Jam for bringing this back for me. This is an interesting beer but not what I would call a great Scottish Ale. Page 339 OF MJ’s Great Beer guide and only 187 Classic Brews to go.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of wood, nuts and caramel. Taste is malty, with hops and a woody character being right up front. Has a bit of a hop bitternes as well as some malt undertones. Ends with a dry acidic finish.

3.1
BritAlesRule (216) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2007
From bottle. Medium brown w/ hints of ruby. Has a small head which diminishes quickly, but decent lacing. Nose is mildly inviting toasted yeastiness. Hits the tongue as slightly sourish bread with hints of citrus and caramel then a little spritz of hoppiness on the back end. Decent.

3.4
RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Served on-tap. Pours amber red with some head, but not a huge amount. On the taste it has a sweeter edge. It’s full bodied and has a nice froth on the mouth. It might be a bit heavy for some people for a session beer, but for people who enjoy quality, it’s a good brew.
