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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark copper with an average (1-2 finger) off white foamy head that steadily reduced, down to a puddled film and medium collar with fair streaky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt, mild grassy hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a mild spiciness. The taste was very malty with a mild caramel sweetness at first, but quickly became bitter sweet with an earthy and mildly spicy finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a mild sweet bitterness left behind. Mouthfeel was in the middle of light and medium in body with a dry texture and an very soft carbonation. Overall this was a brew that did not have much complexity. Although what it did have seemed to work well enough, allowing for the bitter and sweet to meld together along with a good malty feel creating a nice smooth drinkability...

This is a nice shade of orange with a creamy head and lots of lace. This is surprisingly hoppy--not too aromatic but quite pleasantly bitter. Its slightly fruity with some caramel and breakfast cereal malt character. This is pretty full bodied beer, a little sweet but not obnoxiously so and as such is nice and drinkable. This is a solid brew.

Not my normal style but a nice change definitely a Scottish ale not a spectacular appearance but makes up for it with a very nice medium body with a thick texture

Scipio (909) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Pours a clear amber with a thin off white head. The aroma consists of toffee, toasted malts, and nuts, and it isnt very strong. The taste has some mild bitterness. Its very nutty, and has toffee, biscuit, earthy malts, and a bit of butter. Aftertaste is long and mild, with nuts and biscuit. Medium in body, smooth in texture, and average in carbonation. This wasnt very exciting.

Burnt amber pour into New Glarus, Wisconsin pint glass. I took a chance on this as it is new to our area. Aromas of caramel and a bit earthy. A bit of hoppy spiciness. This one is more malt forward but has good balance. Flavors of chocolate malts and rich caramel. Finishes spicy with and slightly dry. Good sweet flavors without being too sweet or cloying. A well rounded beer. I can see why this is there "flagship" beer. Good Scottish/Amber ale.

I had to revisit this as it was my main go to in college. It was okay, and I can see why I liked it; smooth and fairly rich, but it is not really to my tastes at this time.
