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.

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.

Excellent medium body ale. First tried this at a local Italian joint with my panzerotti, excellent combo.

Amber body with big floofy white head and good lacing.

Flavors are mild and restrained; hops and malts arrive simultaneously, with some light sweetness followed immediately by light bitterness. Honey and rind, biscuits and molasses. Mouthfeel is medium light; lets the flavors shine through.

It's good.... but I expect more flavor for the abv.

Preface - I drink amber ales as my beers of choice. Other than Aventinus.

l: Perfect amber color Great head that lasts a long time even when drinking and eating salty chips.

S: A bit more hoppy than I like, but balanced well on the nose.

T: nicce, full body, lits of malt, a bit more hops than I think the style requires.

F: Nice, moderate, clean with just a bit of lingering malt. Clings to the hops strainer on my upper lip.

O: just about as nice as a John Courage amber, deserves a solid 4.5, I gave it a bit more just because
