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. It’s aroma is derived from rare, imported Kentish hops, and lots of them.

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 it’s 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.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Fruit on the nose but not much else. Clean and fruity, without a whole lot of bittering for the style. The sweet maltiness predominates. I enjoyed the fruiyty aspects of this one even though I did not think it was representative of the style. Thanks to FlacoAlto for the bottle.

Copper in color with a white head. Very subtle hop aroma. Medium body with a little hop bite. Served with too much carbonation per style but overall a very tasty bitter.

On tap at the hotel restaurant in The Bolders Resort. Copper color with medium white head. Mild aroma consisting of caramel malt and a touch of citrus hops. Easy drinking with a good balance of hops and malt flavors throughout. A refreshing beer.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Clear copper color with very little head. Not much of an aroma. Flavor is estery and not much hop flavor. A smooth medium body beer. Worth a try.

ElGaucho (2371) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Bland lager aroma with no hint of hops. Beautiful, slightly hazy amber with an off-white head and excellent lace. Small, thin layer of head. Tastes like a lager, not really like an EPA at all. Some dry bitterness. Really dry. Has some bitterness at mid glass. Not bad.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2006
On draught at Tempe brewpub: Clear pale yellow-copper body with a small white head that does have some nice retention. The aroma has a bit of sweet earthy malt, a bit of earthy/floral/grassy hops, but remains mild overall. The taste is mild earthy caramel malt, slightly sweet without getting sticky, and has hints of floral/earthy hops. Light-medium body, medium carbonation, finishes clean and without much aftertaste.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear copper color with fluffy white head that laced the glass. Sweet caramel cnose wirh a hint of sprucy hops. Caramel comes out again in the flavor along with a touch of sweetness. Bitter finish, but more carbonated than I would expect and English bitter to be.

kramer (5687) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2006
12 oz bottle, via FlacoAlto. Copper colored body with a fluffy white head. Soft floral hop aroma, fruity, with some sweet malt. Flavor is rather fruity as well with a clean lightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel was light bodied with fizzy carbonation. A nice easy drinking Pale Ale with moderate bitterness and a clean refreshing finish.
