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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint.

A: Dark amber hue. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, brownish head. Settles very slowly, leaving a thick foam blanket on the surface. Very thick, pervasive lacing.

S: Caramel malt, oak, and a little peat.

T: Caramel accentuated with milk chocolate, peat and wood chips. Multigrain bread.

M: Hearty, and earthy. A slight sweetness in the front, and a pungent finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is very nice. Thick foamy head, and lots of lacing. Nose is sweet with wood and beat and an overall earthy character. Caramel and milk chocolate, peat, and wood. Grainy and earthy. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
