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.

Odd soap taste and it wasn’t the glass. I tried it in a plastic cup too just to check. Nice deep reddish coloring. Hops and malt are balanced. Very easy to drink. Tap
