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.

pours a nice golden yellowish colour with a thin head which dissipates quickly aroma of alc. barnyard and the taste like a mild barley wine great flavour smooth on the palate super easy to drink for 10 percent

Brown with small head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Full body. Alcohol noticable but not overwhelming. Malty caramely flavors but a lot of hops as well. Don’t know if this is really a mild ale but it was pretty tasty.

This is a pretty hoppy beer with wheat, citrus, alcohol, slight pine. Pineapples and maybe some minty weirdness.

a-nothing special, but decent hazy copper with finger worth of head. s-very nice, complex and a whole lot going on. Sweet zest of a clemintine, bit of spice and well hopped T-much like the smell, but even more intence lot’s of flavor. Malt, citrus zesty, peppery spice, a touch of wood and a very nice dry finish. M&D- much more delicate than I would have imagined. A bit too carbonated at first but it settled down after a bit. Very drinkable especially for the alc% of this one. I was very impressed there. Overall a very good beer from a great brewer.

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.

Beautiful bright orange pour with a soft white cap. Aroma is very fruity with some floral notes and alcohol. A bit too hot though to pick out much in the taste past the alcohol & hop bitterness.
