COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once Upon a Time Series #1: Once upon a time, on Monday February 27th, 1832, a brewer stepped into the Black Eagle brewhouse, Brick Lane, London, and brewed a beer that confounds expectations many years later. A mild ale at 10% alcohol, with more hops than most modern American “India Pale Ales.

Sample from bottle at RBWG. Pours a hazy amber color with a small creamy whitish head. The aroma was sweet malt, caramel, floral with hints of fruit. The flavor was pretty big for what it is; sweet caramel malts, fruits, somewhat bready, mild herbal bitterness. Interesting.

Nellie (349) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2011
This is a pretty hoppy beer with wheat, citrus, alcohol, slight pine. Pineapples and maybe some minty weirdness.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle at RBWG 2011. Pours clear pinkish-orange, thin white head, no real lacing. Nose is sweet persimmons, florals, Jolly Rancher candies, the Watermelon kind, and fresh guava, plus jujube candies as well. Flavours of cinnamon, pepper-berries, sweet candy. Very strange beer. Nice, but strange.

Shared at RBWG11: Cloudy orange-yellow color with a thin lacing. Smells like alcohol, vanilla, and bread. Taste of old bourbon, vanilla, barrels, and some bitter hops. Mouth is pleasantly warming and dry.

Bomber courtesy of StFun - my birth date beer for my birthday! Pours cloudy orange with a one finger beige head that left really nice lacing. The nose is malt, citrus and light iced tea. The taste is fruit, toffee, citrus and some bittering hops on the finish. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer – thanks again Josh!
