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.

Odell 90 Shilling, 5.3% ABV, 27 IBU. Pours medium viscosity, copper color, with one finger of foamy white head on an aggressive pour, left slight foamy lacing. Note is malty and bready. Taste is real smooth, bread, with a slight bitter close. Like drinking toast! Excellent mouthfeel, and overall excellent. New style for me, Scottish Ale - and a new favorite.

L: Copper Amber color with a small white head with about half a inch, with some light lacing around the glass.

S: Mint, toasted bread, some floral hop and a slight nuttiness.

T: A nice floral fruit hop, some mint and then a nutty breadiness. Very nice drinking beer.

F: Medium body and medium carbonation, finishes more dry than switch.

O: This beer is a nice easy drinking beer, more of an Amber than a scotch ale. Quite similar to Fat Tire but with a little stronger flavor profile. This is one of my go to beers of there are not a lot of choice.

Very easy to drink. One of the few darker colored beers that I can enjoy multiples of. Odell is a great brewery and this might be their best beer. I pick up 6 packs of this all the time.

Hazy amber with a high amount of suspended particles. Head was two fingers and lasts about ten minutes. A good amount of fine bubble lace.
Smell is brown bread with a bit of lightly smoked peat.
Taste is light sweet tasted malt with some herbal hop notes.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is mildly dry and bitter sweet.
Overall a well crafted beer.
