Poured into a goblet, caramel brown, clarified ale, with under an inch of off white head. Nose is pleasing, candy apple, citrus, toast and malt. Flavor is where it falls slightly short for me, crisp apple, malty and medium-hopped, but somehow seems to be some empty spaces in there somewhere. Mouthfeel is lighter than it looks like it's going to be, but nice carbonation and a tight finish. I think Odell achieved what they were going for with their lighter take on a Scotch ale, and definitely a good offering for their flagship beer. I remember drinking this in Fort Collins 15 years ago and liking it, and still like it now.

The 90 Schilling from Odell is quite nice. The beer pours a brownish clear amber with white head that is leaving a lace. The scent a nice malt....that isnt sweet or over powering. The taste is very good....a nice scotch type ale with that earthy malt. The mouthfeel is lighter than expected in body with good carbonation. Overall a very good beer and would definitely try this one again!

90 Shilling Ale pours a dark clear and cooper color with a nice lacing head. There is a weak aroma with a sharp malty note present. The taste has a nice sharp and peaty malty taste. Flavors are overall rather weak. Overall nothing to special, it is a very average.

A- Pours a medium, rusty amber color with a medium 1.5 to 2 finger head. Head is light tan, frothy, and retains very well. Lacing is good. Body is just slightly hazy, but dark enough to only let a little light through.
S- Fairly one dimensional, but delicious all the same. Primarily caramel malts that are fairly dark in scent and present a slight brown sugary sweetness. Very faint hint of peat malts common in scotch ales.
T- Reminiscent of a light scotch ale. Starts with a little bit of sweetness, mostly brown sugar like in the scent. Lots of caramel malts mix in with the slight sweetness. Towards the end, the caramel malts and a low to moderate hops bitterness balance each other out nicely. Clean, somewhat biting finish from the hops.
M- High in carbonation and medium to heavier in flavor, this is on the more drinkable side of a scotch ale. Alcohol won't keep you from consuming this beer, but the carbonation and thicker flavor profile might.
Overall, this is a good to very good beer, and it's apparent why this is Odell's flagship. Rather smooth drinking and fairly refreshing for the darker side of beers.
