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.

Odell's is a no-brainer in terms of trying a variety of well-made beers while visiting the great state of Colorado.

A deep, copper color with a very light head that lasted the entire drink. Nice lacing. I thought this smelled very similar to OB Dale's PA, and it was every bit as smooth as most beers of this style. That's really where you have to watch yourself. There is so much flavor, and such complexity in this Amber Ale category, it's easy to get carried away. I've been pleasantly surprised by all of the varieties that I've sampled from Odells, and 90 Shilling is no exception.

Enjoy!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a crystal clear medium to dark amber in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow + copper highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a half finger thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel and toffee malts with light aromas of toasted malts.

T: Upfront the flavors of the beer are all malts - toasted and caramel with some light amounts of caramel and toffee sweetness. Light amounts of earthy hops which contribute just a touch of bitterness to the finish of the beer which does not linger for long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: While being somewhat of a malt bomb, this beer is not overly sweet and is quite easy to drink. I really enjoyed this beer though I sometimes find the style to be a little sweeter than I prefer, especially in the hot southern summer. Overall, very well balanced between the sweet and the bitter.
