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.

On tap at Manning's in Minneapolis, not a place known for lesser-known beers.

Pours the color of heated caramel, very opaque. Nice head makes up for the otherwise unimpressive appearance.

Smell is a little caramel, somewhat earthy, quite a bit of malt. A bit hard to pick up on.

Taste: Caramel is a bit more pronounced, maybe this beer takes the malt a little bit too far. Pretty good, not lip-smacking good though.

Adequate mouthfeel, found it more of a sipper despite the low ABV.

This was all right. It's the best beer on tap by far at a place like Manning's, so under those circumstances I'd get it again, but that's about the extent of it.
