Notes/Commercial Description:
We introduced 90 Shilling, our flagship beer, at our opening party in 1989. For a while, we'd been wondering what would happen if we lightened up the traditional Scottish ale? The result is an irresistibly smooth and delicious medium-bodied amber ale.

3.51/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a goblet, caramel brown, clarified ale, with under an inch of off white head. Nose is pleasing, candy apple, citrus, toast and malt. Flavor is where it falls slightly short for me, crisp apple, malty and medium-hopped, but somehow seems to be some empty spaces in there somewhere. Mouthfeel is lighter than it looks like it's going to be, but nice carbonation and a tight finish. I think Odell achieved what they were going for with their lighter take on a Scotch ale, and definitely a good offering for their flagship beer. I remember drinking this in Fort Collins 15 years ago and liking it, and still like it now.
