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.

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 (80) - 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.

JPDurden24 (1622) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Golden orange pour. Floral and carmel malts aroma. Mostly malty on the flavor, smooth and balanced with just a touch of bitterness.

DrSilverworm (6982) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
12oz bottle, thanks to radarsock. Clear golden color, with fine particles in the body. Thin off-white head, leaving good lace. Nice, lighter body. Good dry texture, and lighter, crisp carbonation. Nice light bitter taste. Crisp, toasty malts, and a balance of light hops is what I get from the aroma. Itís tasty, but very light and subtle. This is a good, lighter and crisp pale ale, but the flavor is sort of weak for me, and itís not very interesting.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 27, 2012
Pours a nice clear amber colour with a medium frothy head that disappears quickly. Aroma is mild, with some hops and citrus fruit noticeable as well as slight malt backbone. Taste is a little sweet, with a very soft bitterness. Light body, average carbonation, and thinner on the palate. Overall a reasonable ESB.
