Some light hops to the aroma, fairly faint. This is kind of ho-hum to me. It has some hops but faint and mostly it atastes like a beer with body but without any real distinct flavor to it. A light sweetness in the finish.

Clear, medium brons, lasting dense head. Aroma is a little soapy and flora. Clean, but bland. Starchy, a little cereal. On tap, brewpub, Tempe.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is my favorite Four Peaks beer, especially when it in a cask. The brew houses rotate casks weekly, so you never know what they will have. 8th Street is a really nice, full bodied beer with a hoppy finish and great color and aroma. They would sell a lot of this in a more hoppy region of the country, but not as much in AZ.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Sweetish hop. Citrus. Lemon. Malt.
Appearance: Hazy translucent yellow-orange body with a light and foamy white head.
Taste: Mildly sweet malt with a little bit of citrus-y hop bitterness to balance it out.
Palate: Light bodied. Easy to drink. Short finish.
Overall: A nice beer, I just prefer mine to have more body, character, and depth. This guy is straightforward; sweetish malt, and lemony hop in a dry ale.

Btl. Pours hazy copper color with fluffy off white head that lingers for quite some time. Nice lacing on glass. Light malty sweet smell. Nice floral clean hop aroma. A faint hint of vanilla in the nose. Tastes of honey and caramel with a nice bite at the end. Smooth nice balanced bitter. Good easy drinking beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass (~1/3 pint)
From: A Chevron in Tempe, Ariz.
Price: $8.99 for mixed 6-pack
Purchased: May 15, 2013
Consumed: May 15, 2013
Poured a caramel, copper, dark urine-like clear color with 1-2 fingers of khaki-white head. Plenty of foamy layered lacing on the sides. Pretty good retention on the top.
Smelled honey malts up front. Also wheat, hay and grass with a touch of lemon coming through. Honey heavy for the most part though. Faint sugary floral hops come in late.
Tasted like a lighter version than the smell. Honey, wheat, grass with bitterness on the tongue after. Fairly bland.
Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish.
Nothing special about this beer. Pretty average all around.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Honey-colored, little head fades off, clear beer. Really nice aroma, nutty and sweet. Nice palate, plenty complex, toffee and malty notes, plenty of linger. Good tasting notes, much better quality than I was expecting.

Bottle via trade with Alex - thanks! Mostly clear orange pour with a smaller white head. Soft earthy malts and a little bit of grassy hop - just a bit. Easy drinking, and nothing off-putting in here. Pretty solid ESB.
