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 from the bottle into a medium sized snifter glass.

An absolutely shimmering and crystal clear but dark brown ruby red color. You can just perfectly see though it, even in it's great dark appearance. Head is creamy light tan, hints of white, with a big soapy triangled collar. Cream and soapy, thick out of the bottle. Toast notes are just booming off the pour already. She's a looker indeed.

Big impressive brown bread aromas. Huge amounts of bread crust. Mellow clean finish, no hop presence at all. Malt depth is airy, powdery and very clean.

Palate just brings the goods. Mellow and easy drinking toasted bread in a glass. Crackling toast I say there Grommit, hints of brown bread crust, almost rye but none of the overt spicy quality. Chewy malt with a moderate very subtle caramel that takes a backseat but shows up slightly on the aftertaste. Light bodied and borderline feeling sessionable, but with more depth by far.

Odell just can do me no wrong. A fun easy drinking Scottish ale that has fantastic bready character, without getting overly sweet, sugary, bitter, watery or anything. Odell delivers the goods.

Great beer - lots of depth but still easy to drink. One of the best in Fort Collins and any other place on earth!
