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.

Pint poured and it's a deep amber copper-orange, with medium visible carbonation and a slightly off-white head caked up the rim.
Smells malty and bready like a beer should. Pleasantly ok.
Tastes like an exceptionally smooth rendition of what I just smelled. There's a caramel slickness as this goes down, and it's very well-balanced to me even though it lacks additional complexities that I usually seek in beer. The hops cap it off in a mild, earthy fashion, although a bit dry.
This makes me want to splurge and get a bottle of this brewery's 180 Shilling that I've been spotting on the shelves.
I would definitely recommend this to a drinker of mass-marketed beer who is uneasy about trying something different or "crafty."
