Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

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 guess this is proof advertising works, because I would see adds for this beer for years but it was not available in my area. Now that it is I hesitated for months, seeing the scores. But when it when on sale how could I say no? It certainly is a brightened up ale, with some toffee and raisin note, but then a weird of wheaty yeast. You can tell this beer is well made, balance is good, body is spot on, but the resulting flavors are just ok. So moral of the story, advertising and sales work!

I am always looking for a good beer to go with supper. Odell just entered the market here in Milwaukee; I had fond memories of it from a trip to Colorado I took 5 years ago. So I ordered a QB for my kegerator. The beer is a beautiful amber, light on the tongue, sweet malt, and a bit of bitterness. Big IPAs mess with the flavors of food. 90 Shilling is great as my first beer home from work. I pour a glass from the tap, fire up the grill, make the mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts, and slap down a filet. The beer works with the flavors of the food, it doesn’t obliterate them.

Finally got around to trying this one. Its a nice deep amber color with a good size white head, some lacing has been left behind. Smell is quite light, just some sweet malts. Taste is more sweet malt and a hint of some spices. Nothing is really standing out. Feel is a bit too light, pushing watery but not quite there. Overall not too bad

Pours a crystal clear deep amber/pale brown with a steady but low level effervescence streaming up from the bottom. The pour produces a solid 3 fingers of foamy, khaki, somewhat lasting head that leaves rings & streaks of lacing. Aroma is biscuit, dark malt & roasted nuts, earthy with hints of caramel & thin but bitter chocolate.Taste is dark malt, biscuit, roasted nuts, caramel & earthy floral hops with hints of smoke, cocoa & dark fruit. Dark bready malt, caramel, smoke & a little spice dominate the finish. Low bitterness throughout even in the burnt, unsweetened chocolate & caramel aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, a little thin but not overly so, slightly creamy with a light prickliness.
