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.

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.

On tap: Poured a very nice dark gold color. Had a nice large steady head, not too much carbination or lacing. Had a hoppy aroma to it with citrus tones, and definitly in the taste.

This is very quaffable although overhopped for an english style PA. Not that Iím complaining. Fresh, nice sticky head, good malt character and an appetizing fruit crispiness. Crisp bite.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 Sampler. Had a fruity aroma and flavor. Slight bitterness which made this beer good to me. Going to have to go back and have a full glass.

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. Thatís 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!
