Another in the Series based off of the book 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die (1001 (Universe)).

Odell Brewing Co. named their amber ale 90 Shilling after a Scotish tax.  Tax authorities there at one time taxed the highest quality beer at 90 Shillings.  The owners and brewers of Odell must of thought they had something special when they named this beer.  This was a well done, solid amber, but not fantastic.  Maybe it was the high expectation of the name, but I was slightly disappointed.  Of all the Odell beers I have had this year, this one lacked the POW, BAM, and BOOM of the others.

Tasting notes:
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass, this copper colored beer formed a medium head.  Malty, caramel aromas wafted to the nose.  Medium bodied it went down somewhat fruity, with a trace of chocolate and a nutty aftertaste.
