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

Nose is piney hop - not overstated but there. Doughy. What the heck is that malt? Sweet malt flavor, piney hop. Mildly fruity. Very nice.

Not a huge head, but nice citrus nose. Great balance of hop to malt with a touch of honey. Good clean finish.

Very tasty pale. Has a very mellow hop flavor, and a little citrus. It laces nicely. I only remember this because I was explaining the lacing phenomenon to my room mate and he called me a gay. That’s right "a" gay.

Great pale ale. Not too bitter nice sweet finish from the malt. Nice aroma too. The fact that this one is brewed minutes away from my house makes this a favorite. No Doubt.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2005 rerate bottle-pours a nice orange hue with a small white head. great lacing! herbal, light citrus aroma. some nice biscuty sweet flavors with a touch of sweetness and hops. light citrus on the finish. im really suprised this is all english hops. do i detect a very slight diacytl? if so, it definatly added something good to this beer. bottle-tucson beer fest-pours a light amber hue with good off-white head. malty, slightly earthy hop presence-buttery and biscuty (but not diacytl). flavors are earthy and clean with a touch of hop presence. good EPA!

Their 2nd most popular beer, next to the flagship "Kiltlifter". A well balanced brew, not too bitter, not too thick. It really hit the spot when it was 110 on the patio.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2004
A fruity and flowery hop aroma to start off, with a subtle malt sweetness to back it up. Kind of hazy amber color, big pillowy head. Flavor is a pleasant blend of perfumy hops and light malts, with just a hint of hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Medium body. Good session beer, especially if you're sitting on the patio in Tempe enjoying a 70° February afternoon.

on tap at brewpub scottsdale: I enjoy this type of beer...this one wasnt your typical pale ale, hoppy character through and through nose and good control of overall bitterness, not too much, with a suttle malt overtone as the aftertaste...it took a while (half a pint) until i started tasting the malt. nice effort. easy to drink. nice brewpub. chicken fingers are excellent!
