Bottle. Sour yeast aroma. Nice amount of hops but, the finish is a bit flat. Good body and a bit of fizzyness. Very drinkable!

Sawtooth has a nice aroma, and tastes a very bitter, hoppy beer. There is a hint of chocolate without the sweet. It develops a full foamy head that lingers on the glass.

A great tasting beer. Just bitter enough. Just enough hops. Just enough carbonation. Wish we could get it here.

Bottle at The Rover, February 7, 2006.
Dark amber color. Very hoppy scent and flavor.
I must praise it due to the hoppy character, only problem is that this kind of hops is not my cup of tea at all.
Well worth sampling though!

commercial description is pretty accurate on this one. problam was I ordered this at Old Chicago. After being served the beer without a glass and then having to wait 10 minutes to finally get it, I was brought a frosted mug! By the time it was at the "proper" temperature, it was almost time to leave. amber color with a good foamy head, toasty malt and decent hop bitterness.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with a soapy off-white ehad. The aroma is smooth malt and faint earthy hops. The flavor is mostly sweet malt, but not very strong. There are also some earthy hops and a general ashiness that especially comes out in the aftertaste. Not bad, but no tparticulaly satisfying.

Red amber ale with a white head. Sweet malt aroma with floral hops. Good nutty malts in mouth with floral hops. More of a brown ale in taste. Good stuff. Mondial 2005.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer has an aroma consisting of roasted grain, nuts and berries in the background. It is a copper colored solution that pours a good thick off-white head. This beer is thin and offers a taste of toasted sour dough bread that is a tad bitter which fades to fast leaving a nutty taste lingering.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy amber ale with a thin white head. Stale, moldy smell, taste and finish. I suspect this beer may have been mistreated.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Lightly hazy amber ale with an orange tint. Small, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose is of black tea, light butterscotch and mild cocoa. Flavor is perfectly balanced, but thin, with just a hint of toffee. Light to medium-bodied and lightly creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp and fairly clean.
