Before ordering a beer, I had a taste of my friend's Odell 90 Shilling Ale. With a slightly grassy smell, it smelled like a standard pale ale. It had a light taste.

After taking a sip, the waitress/bartender came up and from across the bar asked for my ID - she wanted to make sure I wasn't just sneaking a drink. Though honestly, nobody with any sense would try to sneak a drink in plain sight.

Some moments later, after drinking some of my Four Peaks Kilt Lifter, I had another sample of my friend's 90 Shilling Ale. As before, I find it has a standard pale ale smell and standard pale ale taste.

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. The name 90 Shilling comes from the Scottish method of taxing beer. Only the highest quality beers were taxed 90 Shillings. A shilling was a British coin used from 1549 to 1982. We think you’ll find this original ale brilliantly refreshing, and worth every shilling.
