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.

Thanks Santa. Pours out with a huge white frothy head. The head was just huge and really fluffy. Ok for the aroma it was nice and hoppy. The taste is very clean and very drinkable with a nice touch of hop bitterness. A very drinkable brew. I liked this one!

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2006 bottle 12oz. Clear amber w a copper tint. Decent fairly large bubble carbonation, good off white head that lasted fairly well, some lace. Aroma is English med. rst. malt & hops with, to me, a somewhat metallic essence. Flavor is English med. rst. malt & hops with a nice bitterness on the palate and finish, well balanced with the semi sweet malt. I donít really care for this style but this is a decent quality brew whoís flavor improved as it lost its chill. There is a rather astringent, alcaline character to the bitterness that Iím not used to. Into medium bodied. There was a trace of fresh, clean, hop spiciness on the finish. I donít think it would be difficult to learn to appreciate this style more with this particular offering.

Thanks to FalcoAlto. 12 oz bottle poured a light and clear orange, with a small quick fading white head. Nose was malt and caramel, but thin. Taste was quite hoppy, which was a surprise since none was in the nose. Smelling back, I catch some fruit in the nose. Finish was nice and dry. Good surprise!

Thanks to either FlacoAlto or Beerhandy for this one. Very mild hop aroma. Tea colored with a finger thick firm white head. Hoppy/citrus notes with a bit of bread maltiness beneath. Watery feel to it, but it tastes very good. Actually pretty thirst quenching.

Cloudy orange color with a thin head. Aroma has a whiff of grapefruit. The taste is pretty mild with a dash of grain and a very weak bitter finish. Good session brew.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2005
12 oz bottle. Clody gold with a big head. Aroma is really balanced between sweet malt, hops and a nice English yeast. The taste is very balanced as well with some nice citrus notes and a crisp hoppiness. This is surprisingly good with a nice dry finish. Very well done.

Pours a brilliantly clear, copper color. It is topped by a frothy, quickly disappearing tan head. The aroma is pretty malty with notes of toasted grain. There is also a solid note of citrus in the aroma from the hops. The taste is quite dry up front, and finishes with a solid bitterness that in combination with the carbonation adds a satisfying sharp bite. The hops are present in the flavor as well, both a nice citrus note as well as a pine note are quite evident.

This beer is a pleasant surprise, I grabbed it on a lark, and the ample hop presence is quite nice. I get notes of orange peel, grapefruit, and toasted biscuits. Quite nice, and I am glad I picked it up.
