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.

Bottle. This looked pretty darn good when I poured it. Disappointing beer though. Light caramel malt and toffee flavors as well as some hops lurking around, but this was thin and somewhat metallic tasting. Thanks for the bottle, Dad.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Poured a hazy light brown with thick two fingers of head. The nose was of caramel, toffee, chocolate with a slight burnt aroma. The taste started with chocolate, tofee and raisin. Later came a strong caramel presence with an earthy hop bite. There were also notes of dark fruits and it was a bit bready at times. The finish was creamy with light hop bitters. The feel was medium to light. This was pretty tasty and goes down well. Its not much of a Scotish Ale, it seems more like a robust Amber initially, then takes on some quasi-Scottish/Pale Ale feel. Its pretty good, no matter what style you may end up setteling on.

Light reddish brown, moderate head with solid lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel, toast, wood, a touch of hops. Medium to light body, lightly sweet finish. Arguably the best of the bunch Ive had.

This is from memory, so I dont have much in the way of detail, but this was a good, malty, farily heavy beer. A nice thick taste of dark fruits. However, be warned: let this beer warm up a little before you drink it. I was drinking out of an ice chest, and the first third of the bottle was very, very bitter and hoppy. Once it warmed up a little bit, the hoppiness mellowed out and the malt started coming to the fore. I liked this beer much more after that, and would buy it again.

12 oz. bottle. Maybe Im just a sucker for this style. Bright, but dense brown body, good-sized brown head. Presents a fine Scots malt smell. Taste is up front caramel and dried plums, with a suggestion of smoked jerky. Some whiskey malt in the backbone. English hops slide along the tongue. Lightly sticky. It may be light in alcohol, but a hearty brew nonetheless good for rainy days and fall evening.

Bottle: The aroma is rather light with some caramel, fruit, and faint floral notes. Its a transparent brownish-red with a small soapy off-white head. The flavor starts with some watery caramel. The finish has some light fruit and faint floral and earthy bitterness. Thin watery mouthfeel with light carbonation.

Was expecting more from a scottish ale, not much character to this one, Actually bitterness dominates, drinkable, just abit plain though, Malt isnt even really there. Thanks to my pal Duane for the brew.

my fourth beer from this brewer and I found this one disappointing. not much flavor and quite watery. some peat noted in the aroma, but the extremely mild flavors of caramel, peat and grain fades much too quick.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2007
Nice one finger head. Dark amber. Caramel nose with a hint of tobacco. Flavour is stronger than expected. Musty tobacco flavour and finish. Dark amber taste. Raw licorice root and hard piece of tobacco finish.
