COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sawtooth Ale is an English style Extra Special Bitter. It is an extremely well balanced beer, with significant hop character, medium body, and a maltiness which increases in evidence as the beer warms to its "proper" drinking temperature. . The water used is quite hard, bringing it to near Burton on Trent levels, keeping it true to the style. This gives it the appropriate character and improves the malt extract significantly.
2000 to 2009 vintages - 4.75% abv
2010 vintage - 5.3% abv

24-Feb-07 12oz bottle from sampler 12-pk. Bronze-amber color, clear, with beige head of tight foam that lasts and laces in sheets. Aroma is plain, a bit mineral, and toasted malts (pretzel). No significant hop character in aroma of flavor until a quick dry finish. Stuff is pretty dry front to back, actually. Nothing to write home about.

Malt leads over the hops. I was thirsty when I drank this -- quite drinkable. Slight medicinal edge to it and finish wasn’t as good as rest.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass, burnt orange with a medium off-white head. The aroma is of hops, citrus and perhaps a touch of orange peel. The taste is dominated by hops with a touch of bitterness. Drinkable, but not memorable.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with a decent sized beige colored head. Aroma is caramel malts, floral hops, light citrus. Flavor is the same. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, bitter finish, crisp and refreshing. Good session.

Bottle. my first left hand product. I was very impressed and would like to try other left hand beers. First thing i noticed is there is almost the perfect ballance between hops and malt but malt actually prevails a little.

Foxbush (1402) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 This was steal the glass night at Capital Ale House. The ESB was good. It had a nice head and an inviting deep golden color. The bitterness was mild and could have been stronger. It is a balanced beer that is drinkable at anytime of day. This was purchased by bottle on 9/4 form Total Wine. It is better ale than last time.

Cloudy reddish brown pour with a light head. Cean and sweet with caramel, nutty, malty flavor. Another good one from left hand.

Sawtooth Ale pours a cloudy copper color, with a light white head with a little bit of lacing. This was my first ESB and I rather enjoyed it.
