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.

Bottle. aroma af hops with no malt. medium bitterness. Tastes like a really good pale ale to me. I guess I can’t taste the hard water.

Slightly murky orange color with thin off white head. A rather full malt aroma of pale, grain and biscuit malts. Solid malt flavors coming from caramel, lightly roasted malts, pale malts and grain like malts. There seems to be a load of non-fermentable sweet and grainy malt sugars. The grain malts are so grainy there’s almost a husk grittiness left behind in the aftertaste. The maltiness actually seems to grow stronger as time passes. Hops are just barely noticeable and play a minor role.

Pours copper, with a thick, fluffy tan head. Thin mouthfeel, quite bitter. Not bad, quite well balanced.

pretty medicore, it seemed to have potental in the begining but just seemed average. A nice amber hue with a froathy white head and a sweet knoey like nose. Flavor was sweet with some hops. balanced but nothing special.

EithCubes (4856) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle. Sweet fruity and hoppy nose. Strong earthy notes. Pours clear orange with a huuuge creamy beige head, rocky and extensively-lacing. Hoppy and lightly bitter. Caramel, toffee, light earthiness. Dark sweetness. Light-medium body. Very soft mouthfeel, balanced and gentle. This leans toward the watery side, but no matter, it’s a good session.

Aurelius (4133) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2006
A distinctly milky aroma with sweet caramel and volatile western hops which are piney and vanilla on the inhale. Brilliant, reddish-bronze and very clear. Interesting label. Grassy, somewhat drier and more cereal than I was expecting, acidic. Not a huge hop charge, but a building bitterness. Crisp and amply CO<sub>2</sub> charged, medium body. Aftertaste has some very light roast and chocolate. I gave a bottle of this to PorterPounder a couple of months back, and now my bread has come back upon the water. A very poised brew.
