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.

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.

Pours with a dark copper color and a slow fading, off-white head. There is a subtle sweet aroma which matches this brews simi-sweet flavor. What I like the most are its spiced, reminds me of cloves, and smooth cream notes. There is a touch of sourness that coates the tongue. Overall, a fine brew with medium carbination and body. Not sure how it stacks up agains other Scottish ales, but really a tasty beer.

Dark copper pour, a nose of bread and caramel, and a slightly sweet open sweeps quickly to a tea-like bite in the close. Surprisingly fresh and clean, it never gets sticky, and is delicious.
