BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Odell Brewing Company

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 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.

LOOKS: Clear amber/caramel, loads of carbonation rising, and a big foamy head that lasts and leaves a nice lacing.
AROMA: Herbal, or (honey) floral, with biscuit caramel malt, and sunflower seeds.
TASTE: Not overly sweet; nice balance. Bready malt, a touch of caramel, sun seeds.
FEEL: Average carbonation, medium-ish body, not overly dry or slick.
OVERALL: Just a nice, pleasant, brew, here.

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.

Up front the taste is well-balanced. Some nice hoppy bitterness followed by a little bit of the malt grain and again followed by the hops. The initial smell is a very good prelude to the flavor of this beer which makes it very sessionable. O'Dell brews never disappoint and this one is no exception.
