COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Scottish beers in the 1800s were taxed on their strength, with the strong and better quality beers costing more. Customers developed the habit of asking for them by the tax ratings, or Shilling names. The 80 Shilling style was one of the stronger types which could be purchased, containing 4-5% alcohol, traditionally malty, without much hop character.

vyvvy (6315) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2015
Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Fest 2015 - Pours tannish / orange with a beige head. The aroma has dry toffee, nutty malt and caramel. It has a medium / light crisp body with semi-sharp carbonation. The taste starts with crackers, dry toffee, light peat and toast. The finish is dry and has exactly what youd want from a Scottish ale. Really nice true version of the style.

seymour (1958) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2015
Tasted on tap in a mini Willybecher glass at the 2015 Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival. It poured a deep reddish amber colour with white foam. Solid maltiness but not sticky sweet. Grainy, nutty, earthy. Subtle UK-style hop balance, very faint but pleasant. Light-medium body and carbonation. 100% true-to-style 80/-. One of my favourites from todays fest.
