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.

I've had this many times, but finally reviewing it after a 22oz. draft with dinner tonight.

A - Dark chocolate brown with a cocoa head, decent legs for a Scottish ale. A little hazy.

S - Piney hops muddled with clove or allspice. It's nice but isnt there in great amounts.

T - I dont detect any of the spices that were there in the nose. I get a mild hop twang and an oaky flavor.

M - The character that makes it above average for me is a little more creaminess and no funky lingering aftertaste.

O - I had this after having a Sam Adams Winter Lager, and it was a defininte improvement. Mostly because of the mouthfeel and appearance.
