5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Re-Rate 01/12/02: Pours a nice deep amber color, the head beige and moderate, the lace adequate. Nose is malt, but has hints of the English hops. Starts a bit sweet, the middle thinner than I like, the finish is hop spicy and pleasant. Normally have the draught version as with the 'Kilt Lifter', but both are drinkable and not over powering, which make them a likeable beer for most drinkers.

This is my favorite Four Peaks beer, especially when it in a cask. The brew houses rotate casks weekly, so you never know what they will have. 8th Street is a really nice, full bodied beer with a hoppy finish and great color and aroma. They would sell a lot of this in a more hoppy region of the country, but not as much in AZ.

on tap at brewpub scottsdale: I enjoy this type of beer...this one wasnt your typical pale ale, hoppy character through and through nose and good control of overall bitterness, not too much, with a suttle malt overtone as the aftertaste...it took a while (half a pint) until i started tasting the malt. nice effort. easy to drink. nice brewpub. chicken fingers are excellent!

12oz bottle. This yellow orange ale poured with a nice one inch head that reduced down to a lasting quarter inch. The smell is sweet malt with floral hop odors. The taste is sweet with a good hop balance. The mouthfell and carbonation are very good with a slightly dry finish. A very refeshing brew. I'm happy to see beers of this quality being produced so close to home. I ve been to the Brewery a few times but that was back before I started rating. I think its time for a another visit.

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.

12oz bottle from cbkschubert; Nose of hops, a little orange, and maybe some casaba, unlike any other (out of 480) Iíve tried.Clear gold with a small white head; Flavor is hoppy bitter combined with a sweet friut taste that smacks of fresh peaches, but I didnít get the exact same thing from the nose. Unusal and I think underrated!

CASK. Absolutely! A smooth but formidable-tasting beer whose cream, apple, sugar and plant notes emerge without carbonation. Could have drank this all night, but alas my heart is a wanderer.

Bottle courtesy of rustychiles. Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells of citrus, hay, some malt. Tastes lightly bitter and resiny with some sweet malty hints. Enjoyable.

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.
