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.

Pours hazy dark burgundy with a fully receding light tan head. Aroma of caramelized alefruits, toffee. Taste is sweet, fruity with notes of plum, raisin, and toffee. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky with lush carbonation. Sticky and under attenuated.

yespr (40865) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours clear orange golden with a creamy/crispy slight off white head. Malty sweet grapefruit aroma. Flavour is more dry than the aroma, giving a dry malt base with the fruitiness mildly adding in on top. Soft malty finish.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2007
It has a wee white head and an amber body. The smell is one that is very fruity and smells almost like an IPA. The taste is bitter and light bodied mostly. There is a little sweetness and it leaves a roasty finish. Some hops, but not too many.

chicagobears (449) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Carbonated golden amber pour. Started drinking this too cold. Leaves a brash grassy hop taste at first. When it warms the toasted malt shines. A rich English style ale.

Bottle and on draft. Amber / red pour withnice white head. Good bittering hops in the flavor profile, without being overpowering in the least. Very smooth drinking ESB. Good session beer.

nearbeer (4928) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2009 Bottled 02-28-07. Clear, orange-amber with a large head that lasts well. Aroma is rich marshmallow malt, with some faint citrus-herby hops. Taste is a well-balanced battle of grapefruit-grassy hops vs. rich and slightly nutty malt. Palate is medium-bodied, creamy, and a little dry and tingly. A better bitter.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Bottle. Poured a clear copper with a frothy off-white head, leaving some columns of lacing. Caramel to toffee malt aroma with some orangey biscuit notes. Nice malty flavors with a minerally character and some fruity esters. Nice and balanced as advertised. Medium to full bodied but very drinkable, with fine carbonation. I found this a nice example of a full flavored session ale. Given the other ratings I think I got the lucky bottle.
