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 a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a light, amber coloring, with a fluffy, clingy, bubbly, off-white head. Nose of muted roasted caramel and nut, with earthy highlights. Flavors are roasted caramel sweet, with earthy tones, and hints of char. Smooth, slick bodied, with a roasted, sugary sweet aftertaste. Smooth, slightly cloying finish.

Poured from a bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: minimal off-white head, beautiful dark burnished copper color, nice lacing as it drinks down
S: fairly faint, a little dark fruit, a little citrusy hops, some biscuity malt
T: much better and richer than the nose. Caramel malts come out most fully, along with some bready biscuity toasty grains...but these are balanced by some subtle but nice and sharp hops. Balance is notable.
M: Another really nice thing about this beer. Carbonation is fairly low, but the balance between malt and hops is well-worth savoring...a little bit of prickle from the hops but great smoothness and warmth from the malt.

Overall: Very nice. Pairs really well with a good sandwich or burger.
