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.

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!

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.

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.
