BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Really good amber ale. I didn't pour it since I'm a poor college student and I don't have pint glasses, but regardless it was quite tasty. Smooth, clean, and easy to drink, this beer is ideal for nearly any occasion. I highly recommend it.

Appearance - Pours clear and pure copper in color with a light khaki finger width head. Good retention, leaving a fair layer of suds across the surface.

Smell - Aroma consists of caramel, a fruity sweetness and a touch of floral hop and spice.

Taste - Strong flavor with caramel and with a sweet, fruity flavor akin to apple juice. Hops are subdued, but a light spiciness comes through in the finish.

Mouthfeel - On the lighter side of medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. Super smooth drinker, finishing with ease.

Overall - More of an Amber than a scottish, and their description of the brew reflects that. I dig it. Relatively simple, but full flavored. Try it and like it.
