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.

Pours a nice red, with a hint or orange. Forms about an inch of a tan colored head.

Smells very malty, and with the yeast, reminds me a bit of the smell of fresh baked bread.

Starts out very malty, with a sweetness that is just right, not overdone. There is a bit of a hop bite there, which adds a bit of spice to it. Has a bit of pepper overlaying the malt. Nice mix of flavors here.

The feel is very nice and full, better than I expected.

This is a very flavorful beer which goes down easy. I picked up this bottle while on vacation, and glad I gave it a try. Very nice beer.

I have enjoyed reading about this style and the the history behind it relating to the taxation of how heavy the beer was. Looking forward to trying this.

Bottle best by 5/1/12. Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a nice deep amber color with lots of frothy off white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.

S- Bready. Lots of caramel malts. Very mild hop aroma.

T- Nicely balanced. The malt sweetness is not overpowering, balanced with some mild herbal hops. The bready flavor is enjoyable like freshly baked warm wheat bread.

M- Pleasant medium body, not overly carbonated. Slight dry finish.

O- A solid offering from Odell. Really enjoyed this.
