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.
