90 Shilling Ale

If you are ever in Columbus, OH, or have an older brother who lives there and who visits bearing drinkable gifts, check out some of the product from Columbus Brewing Company.  I’ve enjoyed their IPA and their Pale Ale, but I really enjoyed the 90 Shilling Ale.  It was a beautiful, deep, ruby red with noticeable carbonation.  It only produced a thin head, but was persistent throughout the drinking.  The bouquet was exceptional, with a hint of coffee, bitter chocolate and sharp hops.  The taste was true to the bouquet, but added a healthy dose of yeast in the finish.  It was fairly smooth, full and somewhat dry with a great malty quality to it.  Definitely above average.  I recommend it and would buy it again.
