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.

My first review really should be for my favorite beer, shouldn't it? This beer goes with every food, it's perfectly balanced, and it's a great introduction to craft beer for those who have never seen the light. It's closer in style to an amber ale, which might bore some people, but don't let a classification determine what you try. Beautiful color, not too high alcohol content, not super hoppy, not too sweet, just a fantastic beer. Will have one of these anytime, anywhere.

Amber copper color with a thick two finger head with decent retention.
Light aroma of mint, biscuit and slight toasted malts.
Flavor of toasted malts, earthy hops, spices, caramels and mild herbal mint. Finishes with a copper and mild red fruit taste. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light to medium body.
This is mellow, perfected balanced and refreshing Scottish ale, though not so fruity and complex as the original style. Being very clean and easy to drink, also pleasant and not tiresome.
