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.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained in Boulder Colorado. 650ml, tasted in dimpled mug. Appearance is deep rust colour, almost ruby. Very little head after the initial pour. Aroma has elements of caramel sweetness, butter toffee flowered hoppiness. Flavour is close, but does not live up to the aroma. Starts off like a butter toffee candy, but doesn’t finish as rich. Sort of a mellow subtle sweetness with a watery backing.

sfontain (818) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Fairly dark amber with a small, white head. Aroma is mostly malty with some caramel with a floral note. Flavor does have a fair amount of bitterness; also floral taste; aftertaste is "flat" and just sort of plain. A little thin but probably decent for the style.

Overall, Im not a big Ale fan altogether. This one wasnt to bad, I have had more bitter ones in the past. The name is bascially what got me to purchase, luckily the sawtooth didnt cut me up inside.

Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2005
Wispy creamy head on top, beautiful crystal clear deep amber below. Aroma is mild, slightly malty and sweet. Crisp and effervescent in the mouth, with well balanced but mild flavors. Mildly bitter, gets better as it approaches cellar temp. Definitely a good beer to start the night with before moving on to something more flavorful.

kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2005
nice red color thin head dissipates quickly leaving only a thin ring around the glass. like zero lacing. has a lightly roasted aroma and some hops. there isn’t much going on in the flavor. kind of thin with a little hops after taste. i could see my self drinking this while grilling. good out door lawnmowing beer.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - APR 24, 2005
Light aroma of hops. Pours a nice honey color with little head and zero lacing. A bit sweet and flat with the right amount of hops and malts. A little too thin for my liking - might be better as a more medium-bodied brew. Palate leaves a touch of bitterness in the back of the mouth but is largely uninspiring. Decent overall - very drinkable.

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2005
Amber body, small white head. Aroma light on the hops. Flavor is rather thin bodied, with a good deal of hoppy bitterness backed by some caramely malts. Decent quaffer.
