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.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 29/09/2005 Golden coloured and hoppy. Crisp on the palate with a slightly bitter lasting finish.

On draught at Tempe brewpub: Clear pale yellow-copper body with a small white head that does have some nice retention. The aroma has a bit of sweet earthy malt, a bit of earthy/floral/grassy hops, but remains mild overall. The taste is mild earthy caramel malt, slightly sweet without getting sticky, and has hints of floral/earthy hops. Light-medium body, medium carbonation, finishes clean and without much aftertaste.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear copper color with fluffy white head that laced the glass. Sweet caramel cnose wirh a hint of sprucy hops. Caramel comes out again in the flavor along with a touch of sweetness. Bitter finish, but more carbonated than I would expect and English bitter to be.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2006
12 oz bottle, via FlacoAlto. Copper colored body with a fluffy white head. Soft floral hop aroma, fruity, with some sweet malt. Flavor is rather fruity as well with a clean lightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel was light bodied with fizzy carbonation. A nice easy drinking Pale Ale with moderate bitterness and a clean refreshing finish.

Thanks Santa. Pours out with a huge white frothy head. The head was just huge and really fluffy. Ok for the aroma it was nice and hoppy. The taste is very clean and very drinkable with a nice touch of hop bitterness. A very drinkable brew. I liked this one!

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2006 bottle 12oz. Clear amber w a copper tint. Decent fairly large bubble carbonation, good off white head that lasted fairly well, some lace. Aroma is English med. rst. malt & hops with, to me, a somewhat metallic essence. Flavor is English med. rst. malt & hops with a nice bitterness on the palate and finish, well balanced with the semi sweet malt. I don’t really care for this style but this is a decent quality brew who’s flavor improved as it lost its chill. There is a rather astringent, alcaline character to the bitterness that I’m not used to. Into medium bodied. There was a trace of fresh, clean, hop spiciness on the finish. I don’t think it would be difficult to learn to appreciate this style more with this particular offering.

a poor example of an EPA. Flat taste with a smooth but bland mouthfeel. Goes down easy but dosen’t finish big at all!!

Thanks to FalcoAlto. 12 oz bottle poured a light and clear orange, with a small quick fading white head. Nose was malt and caramel, but thin. Taste was quite hoppy, which was a surprise since none was in the nose. Smelling back, I catch some fruit in the nose. Finish was nice and dry. Good surprise!

Pour is light golden with a thin white head...smell is molasses and caramel...light bitterness in the flavor with some nice sweetness...tastes like it should...
