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.

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.

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 Misc.: N/A 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.

Caytinator (999) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2013
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.

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 (882) - 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.
