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.

Another Odell success. Can't go wrong with these guys.

A: Beautiful warm copper/amber with subdued fizz.

S: Malt goodness with fruity overtones, biscuit undertones and a hint of something I'd call more sage than mint. Deceptively light body for the ABV. Citric hops are present but don't defeat the toasty malted flavour at all. Quite an amazing balancing act between these two actually. Aftertaste is remarkably clean and refreshing, it doesn't linger too long on the palate and leaves you wanting more.

I could session this stuff for days, given the balance and drinkability it has in spades. If you want a tasty beer that goes down real easy... look no further.
