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.
2000 to 2009 vintages - 4.75% abv
2010 vintage - 5.3% abv

Very carbonated, nice fluffy, rocky head atop a peach-amber body. Easy hop aroma, pleasant fruitiness, peach, etc., and lightly mellifluous. Easy ESB/pale ale body, minerally, fruity, nice hoppiness, moderate to light-bodied. Well structured, but restrained flavor. Nicely balanced bitter finish. A great session ESB.

Bottle. Very high fluffy but lasting off-white head. Clear cobber body. Spicy and yet caramel sweet hops aroma. Sweet burned malt flavor with caramel, round and smooth without much hops bitterness. Low carbonation, short aftertaste.

mrant (330) - New York, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Smells of bitter hops with a faint skunky smell. Pours a very hazy orange/amber color with a medium white head. Taste is half bitter half sour hop notes with a fizzy feel and a slightly watery finish. Not a fantastic bitter, but not terrible.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2007
Amber with nice off white head. Aroma was hoppy with citrus accent and some light rye. Flavour is full, rich and bitter at the finish. Quite smooth on the palate throughput.

Jonte (1496) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Bottle. Amber/orange color. Head is about 3 centimeters and creamy, but fades after a couple of minutes. The color of the head is off-white. Good lacing.
Smells of fruity/citrus hoppiness, apricot, sweet caramel and some yesty sourness. I really like the smell of cascade hops. The taste is fruity, mostly citrus, but also some more sweet fruits and caramel/toffee. Nice smooth finish with moderate bitterness.
Medium body and light carbonation.
High drinkability and a good session ale. One more please!
