Bottle. Pours clear copper with small white head. Aroma is caramel, bread crust, honey, melon (?). Rather weak. Taste is also weak - a bit sweet with too low bitterness. Medium carbonation. Watery. Average beer.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very well balanced copper color ale. Not much aroma to it. Little head and nice copper color. Finish is even and does not linger.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 fl oz bottle from Potsdam IGA (Potsdam, NY), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear copper with a smallish light tan head.
Aroma: Bread and bread crust maltiness, brothy/mashy, some dry British toffee notes, a wee bit of dark dried fruit, not especially inspiring.
Palate: Medium body, fairly lively carbonation.
Flav.: Bread and bread crust, dry British maltiness, an odd...almost fishy(?) note, messy; dry with some bitterness and a nondescript British malt finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On nitro. Dark amber color with thick white head. Smells biscuity and slightly fruity. Nice smooth palate. Slightly bitter and biscuity taste. I like it.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Not very distinct, some hops, but nothing over powering. Pour: Golden amber with a petite off white head. Taste: Smooth and creamy with a mild hops taste.
Overall i was greatly underwhelmed by this beer. I had high expectations for this beer as Left Hand's last venture into beers on nitro (Milk Stout) was an overwhelming success. The nitro really smooths out the overall experience of Sawtooth, almost glossing it over. This is a matter of preference of course, but not to my liking.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from nitro bottle, per Left Hand pouring instructions. Malty aroma. Ruby/golden color with nitro head. Ultra smooth velvety nitro palette. Malty and a bit nutty very "smooth" for lack of a better word. Hint of floral hops in the finish. Nice "friendly" beer.
