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.

Poured this 12 oz. brown bottle into a becker. Label embossed with date of: 053107. The body was a clear dark leather color. The oatmeal colored head was minimal and fell to a thin cap/film quickly. No lacing.

Smell was spicy, fruity, and mildly grainy. Date-nut bread. Rich.

Taste was sweet grains. Caramel malts. The light hoppiness balances, but does not disrupt the style.

Mouthfeel was smooth and medium bodied. This is not my favorite style but it was nice.

Best by: 1/17/12
Purchased from: On the Rocks, Lawrence, KS

App- A semi translucent amber with some light browns and a good 1/2 finger of semi off white head. Had a very good amount of cling behind it.

Smell- A malty, slightly hoppy aroma with a bit of seems to me like ginger. A boquet of some decent spice balanced things out.

Taste- Much like th taste with a full malt flavor and a bit of a toned down amber. Sadly this had a second layer of some pepper and a bit of a soap flavor.

Mouth- A medium body and a medium carbonation level. A bit of grainular soap after taste. I was not a fan of this residual flavor.

Drink- I just simply wasn't a fan of this beer. It was average to say the least but that mouth and feel just killed it for me.
