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 into a standard pint. The beer is a clear medium mahogany color with a good finger's worth of foam, nicely white and leaving excellent lacing. The nose offers pleasant malt aroma, but it's a bit faint. Very nice flavor though! It's pretty much entirely malt-based, as you would expect, nice and bready with a little bit of caramel. Finish is sweet, as there's little hop bitterness. The low strength makes it feel much more like the real ale you get in Scotland, than many American micro's interpretations of a "strong" scotch ale. Very good beer.
