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.

Tons of phenols in the nose, some darker fruit notes - raisins. Almost smells like a malt liquor. Sweet and adjuncty with alcohol. Pours darker golden, no head or lace. Lots of sweetness upfront - sugars, appley plum notes. Toast and even a hint of leather? Tons of adjuncty sweetness wow. So to make a mild 10percen you add a shit ton of fermentable sugars. Mouth burning alcohol. Light but sweet, thin bit hot. Wow, an odd beer.

BuckeyeBoy (6155) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2011
22oz Bottle Pours out cloudy amber topped with a cream head. Aroma was citrus, caramel, bread malts, and some tropical fruit. Taste was much as the aroma with a good balance of citrus hops and sweet malts. This beer was a surprise to me a10% mild ale it just doesn’t make scents to me.

(22oz bottle via trade with Josh) clear rich orange-brown with few bubbles. Nose of sweet caramel, mild alcohol, some fermented apples and cream. Taste of alcohol, sweet caramel, mild spices appear due to heat from the alcohol, cinnamon. A bit too grassy/spicy with a creamy, warming finish.

Bottle, Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a slightly hazy light copper body with a small wispy off-white head. Light nose, a little bit of husky and grainy maltiness, slightly sweet. The flavor is a little fruity with some light hops and a little caramel malt. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a touch of clingy sweetness, soft carbonation. Pretty forgetable, though not especially bad.
