3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer i tried was the Sawtooth Nitro. The beer pours to a nice amber color with a medium white head on it. It has the aroma of bread, caramel, a slight sweetness to it as well. The taste is very mild with a bread or nutty flavor with a very mild hop bitterness to it. The beer overall was an ok ESB.

1/26/14. Bottle. Pours a light copper with a one finger creamy head that says around to the end of the glass. Light herbal nose. Taste balance is more like an ESB than a APA. A bit malty with a light body.

Nitro bottle, pours amber brown with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, slight hop bitterness. Some bready, biscuit notes. Taste is malt, fresh milled grain and a little bitterness. Light and easy with not much going on.

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

One of the better options in the Left Hand Christmas sampler. An American ESB worth drinking. Nice color and a pleasing aroma - mild bitterness with balance.

Pours dark amber with a small off white head. Not very complicated, very subtle hop taste. A sweet hoppy aroma. Smooth and very lightly bitter aftertaste. A very smooth and easy to drink beer. If I had one more, I would drink it ;-)

Appearance: beer pours with a very small beige head, beer is very clear brown color
Aroma: very faint, creamy malt,
Taste: bitter initially, not overly strong bitterness though,
Palate: almost feels fluffy in the mouth, minimal bitter aftertaste, lively carbonation
Overall: not a bad beer just not much flavor to it, basically a smooth easy drinking beer with a bitter element to it

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Nitro bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a clear dark caramel color with a very small creamy off white head. Aroma of light citrus fruit and caramel malt. Taste of toasted and caramel malts, and hints of bitter citrus. Mouthfeel is creamy, but watered down and sort of flat. I’m personally not a fan of the Nitro in this beer.
