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.

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.

Tap @ Four Peaks Tempe. Pours a clear, dark golden appearance with a small khaki head. Light toffee, a touch butterscotch, caramel malty aroma. Light lemon zesty, caramel flavor. Ok.

AtronSeige (558) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 5, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a off-white head that stays. Head leaves good lacework. Fairly active carbonation in the glass. Strong aroma of hops, almost floral, with a slight malty sweetness in the back. A good medium bitterness with a toasty, quite dry taste in the back of your throat. Almost salty. Medium bodied with very active carbonation once on the tongue. Almost a slick/oily feeling in the mouth. The dryness is quite long lasting. This is a beer that can be consumed in large quantities, but I am worried that the dryness may lead to me eventually drowning in the beer. 12 Oz Bottle, poured. Brought from USA by my Mom! :)

Its hard to get an English bitter to work in the States, and this one is slightly better than average. Their selection of EKG apparent and well-done. The malt choice a bit more suspect.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Draft @ Four Peaks. Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma of toast, lemon, herbal tea and light caramel. Flavor is toasty malt with a medium hop bitterness, light fruitiness. Medium to light body with a crisp finish. Good session beer, clean, crisp and refreshing.

It is what it is. Itís a perfectly clear amber ale with spicy hop notes and a malty sweet flavor. Itís a classic style done well but we arenít reinventing the wheel here.

Hanan (78) - NW Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours golden with a light head, for this rating itís a bottle, but Iíve had on tap and cans. Ya mellow, refreshing on a summer Arizona day. At the top of English ESBs. In fact, very close in taste to Bass. So I did a blind taste test, very similar to Bass but to my surprise I preferred the 8th Street Ale. Just tasted a little more lively, a little spice to it. Pleasant malty flavor. Not detecting much sweetness. Feint bitterness, maybe orange.
