This is a really nice ESB beer. It has a nice taste of caramel and hops. It is amber in color. I will be drinking it again.

This ESB is not too bitter but definitely extra special. Pours a nice amber hue with a decent head retention. Sweet Malty backbone with a smooth finish.

Aroma: Sweet and malty,
Appearance: Vivid amber/bronze color, beige off-white head with good retention.
Taste: Medium sweet and medium bitter; well-balanced flavor.
Palate: Medium body, average carbonation, lingering finish.
I appreciate that Sawtooth Ale is a beer that can be both complex and simple. If you are searching for intricacies and details in this beer you will find them, or if you are looking to enjoy a handful of beers without being overwhelmed with sensory aspects it is also great for that.

Overall a delicious beer for its style. Enjoyed in a chilled glass last night. Great reddish/brown color with a decent head on it. Finished with a sweet, malty taste that isn’t overbearing. Will definitely be having more of these!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: caramel, bready, cereal
Appearance: white frothy head, body is amber and clear
Taste: Initial sweetness from malt bill is balanced out with a prominent herbal hop bitterness on the finish
Palate: Medium body with a surprisingly thin body. Average to soft carbonation.
Overall: A modern take on an ESB, closer to an Amber than a classic ESB. Good session beer

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Pinthouse Pizza. Amber with off-white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Weak malt, caramel, and nut flavors. Not a lot of flavor. Creamy texture. Not very exciting, but it’s drinkable.

Nitro version. Nice copper amber color. Not much to the smell but who drinks a Bitter for the smell? Taste is creamy and easy, I really like the mouthfeel of these types of beers.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber beer with a bubbly white head. A sweet, tangy, malt aroma. Flavour is milder. The same qualities are there and there’s some hoppy flavour coming through as well. It doesn’t have the rich, hearty quality you’d expect from an ideal premium/ESB but it’s very drinkable all the same. A touch too strong to be as sessionable as they claim on the bottle but tastewise it absolutely is.

More full-bodied than expected. Good aftertaste for ESB, but still a little heavy.
