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

It was lightly cloudy with a lasting off white head. This was a beer that was fairly balanced. It wasn’t as hoppy as I would have expected.

Strong hop, and malt characteristics. Average body, with a sticky texture. Aromas are piney and a hint of syrup. Sharp, sweet bite. Not a whole lot to brag about here.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2006
On Draft at Issac Newton’s. Pours amber with a decent sized white head. Aroma of pine, hops, and fruit. Flavor is citrusy, carbonated, sweet, with a slight bitter finish. Good body, good brew.

I really like this brew. It is my favourite of the Left Hand brews so far. It is hoppy, somewhat bitter, but also refreshing, not too watery, not too strong - it is a good balance. It would be nice if the ABV were a bit higher though.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Floral and fruit in the aroma. Plenty of hops, too. I find more bitterness than other raters have indicated. Very pleasant. Some tartness is evident, perhaps grapefruit. The body is medium to light and in color the beer is a nice amber. Remainng lacing is on the oil side. Some of the malt appeared in the finish. This was an interesting mix of sour, sweet, and bitter. Very nice.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber with a creamy, off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Lovely nose full of aroma hops. Medium body with a caramelish sweetness and some great hops leaving more flavour and aroma than bitterness. Great brew. 200306

Pours a nice reddish orange color. Aromas of nice citrus/grapefruit hops and sweet malts. Flavor starts nice crisp bitter hop and then mellows to a nice dry finish.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Dark reddish tan in color with a small off white head. Spicey but minimal aroma. Smooth flavor but with some bitterness in the backend. Its ok but doesn’t do too much for me.
