3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bought at Capones in Norristown. Pours copper with a slight haze. Biscuit and earthy hop aroma. Sweet flavor but not cloying or sticky..clean with a good hop balance. Caramel malts and nutty flavor like a toasted victory malt followed by a nice mellow spicy hop finish. Very nicely balanced.
