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.

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.

A damn solid easy drinking pale ale. Just enough hops and malt. A good choice for the summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Not a bad beer. Inoffensive. Wouldn't mind it being more "slippery" per the style. But available widely and good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

IrishBoy (3805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
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.
