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.

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.

On draft at zinburger in Phoenix...pours rich orange...nose mild; initial taste only moderately bitter...probably too cold. Why do bars think everything is coors light?

Pours copper to amber clear color with creamy medium head leaving no lacing only because the head is still there. Perfumy floral hops with sweet caramel malt aromas. Full bodied with small carbonation. Smooth finish of both hop and malt taste. Good esb bit not very bitter.

Draft at brewpub. Finally a bitter that lives up to it’s name. Not much on the nose. Bitter taste on the front of the tongue but it fades fairly quickly leading to an interesting beer.

GABF 2011. Clear brilliant gold, frothy white head. Sweet toffee aroma with a touch of lemon zest and balanced hoppiness. Taste is very well balanced but plenty floral with mild toffee tones, and mild citrus rind. Body is a little too light for my liking.

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 15, 2011
Copper with a thick, creamy head. Sweet, toasted malts, fruit, light floral aroma. Flavor is sweet with mild malts, bright fruits, and a light bitterness. Not bad and fairly refreshing.

Bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet grassy and herbal hops, some honey touched malt. A sweet herbal tea hop bite, some light oranges, smooth dry malts, fairly sweet, very tasty. Easygoing and true to style. I need this on cask.
