Odell 90 Shilling Ale
Fort Collins, Colorado
The flagship ale from Odell Brewing Company, introduced at the brewery’s opening party back in 1989. 90 Shilling is a lighter take-off on the traditional Scottish ale style. The Scottish method of naming beer is based on original gravity and the resulting taxes issued. A 5.3% ABV shows that this is not true Scottish ale, but a modern version that is not alcohol laden and heavy like its predecessors. An amber colored body with a light tan head conjures up aromas of dark fruits and sweet caramel. Toasty flavors and smooth finish make this ale extremely drinkable.
