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.

Lubiere (12678) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
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.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2006
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.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Hazy amber ale with a thin white head. Stale, moldy smell, taste and finish. I suspect this beer may have been mistreated.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2005
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.

alabamajohn (67) - Alabama, USA - DEC 17, 2005
This is a decent brew, and perhaps a little underrated. A little hop bite, with a little sweetness and malt. It is thin, but I think thatís what makes it a good session beer. Drink the whole bomber yourself.

On draft. Slightly rocky off- white head that mostly diminishes. Nice lacing, especially for a medium-bodied beer. It was clean and well hopped. Try it with your favorite pizza!

Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Serendipitous, indeed. Clear caramel color , medium head. Well balanced and a bit on the sweet side. Transparent hops, slick in the throat. Easy to drink. Would make a nice transitional beer for those willing to move on from Shiner Bock.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Clear copper, medium off white head. Sweet estery aroma. Medium mouthfeel, very light carbonation. Sweet caramel with a hint of grass or hay. Very lightly bittered. Something about the flavor of this just didnít suit me.
