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.

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

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...

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured to a pint glass at the Grand Hyatt lobby in Denver. Pours orange colored, clear, with a creamy off white head on top. Aroma of some caramel and bready malts dominate, with some light floral notes on the back end. Flavor is mostly caramel malts, bready, much like a scotch ale (this is my first "Scottish" ale). Finishes OK, with medium body and a bit of juiciness. Medium carbonation. Overall not my favorite beer but my first of the style and certainly not bad.
