COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning 8th Street Ale is based on an English-style "Best Bitter" which is the most common ale served in British pubs. What makes 8th Street Ale uncommon is its mellow bitterness and its slightly sweet malt flavor. Itís aroma is derived from rare, imported Kentish hops, and lots of them.

aracauna (3283) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Pours a hazy, pale amber with a good, white head. The aroma is a juicy orange hoppiness. Light bodied malt, a touch of cracker, but easy drinking without being too boring.

IrishBoy (3960) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
12oz bottle from cbkschubert; Nose of hops, a little orange, and maybe some casaba, unlike any other (out of 480) Iíve tried.Clear gold with a small white head; Flavor is hoppy bitter combined with a sweet friut taste that smacks of fresh peaches, but I didnít get the exact same thing from the nose. Unusal and I think underrated!

PorterPounder (6299) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Scottsdale, Az, - Albertsonís - 12 oz bottle. Medium golden pour with a persistent, soft, white fluffy head that sticks around. Aroma is slightly peppery with some artificial glue notes. Flavor has some fruity notes - pick up melons, grapefruit. Good underlying biterness permeates throughout. Mouthfeel is a tad on the stinging side, bt does not detract. Overall, a decent EPA.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert! - Thanks Craig! - Pours golden with a fluffy white head that stays pretty well and laces the glass in weblike patterns. Aromas of light floral hops over crisp pale malts. Flavor is a very well balanced blend of floral and citrus hops over nice pale malts and light grains. There are some hints of orange and a touch of yeast in this as well. Palate is light crisp and clean with a slight bitter finish. Not a bad pale at all.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2006
like a well-trained dog captive all day in an apartment, this baby had apparently been pent up pretty long: a bunch of gas frantically hissed through the slit of open air exposed by the slightest upward bending of the bottle cap. thus audibly announcing itís exuberance, it filled the glass first with soapy dense foam, and then let a clear golden orange brew make a slow appearance below. that fine head was creamy and lasting. the 8th street has a fresh vegetable aroma, possibly some carrot and yellow bell pepper, with orange zest, raw pie dough and fresh pencil shavings. pleasantly brisk carbonation, rather dry taste, some french baguette pale malts with a healthy dose of citrus tasting hops along with their slightly puckering bitterness. pretty nice for a mild, flagship ale.
