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

Bottle, courtesy my wifes cousins in CO. Deep amber with offwhite head. Nose of fresh toasty malt, really quite nice and inviting. Flavor is fresh toasty-sweet malt with a nice underlying bitterness throughout. Full and creamy on the palate, this was quite enjoyable-- went well with a drunken evening of pool and darts.

Bottle. This is a decent ale...too off balance for my likings though. Needed more hops for my taste buds. It had a very strong caramel malt flavor which would have been great, had there been more hops. Id drink again, but not a favorite.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2007
pours a dark copper orange with a one finger bubbly off white head. aroma is caramel malt and hops with orange, melon, and veggie characteristics. has a light to medium body with descent lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma, but with mostly veggie and the others faintly following. could not get into the veggie flavor in this beer but to each his own i guess. it smells and tastes like kind of a weird roasted caramel malt giving it that aroma and flavor. it is a little sticky as well.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours amber with a average size white frothy head that diminishes quickly but leaving some pretty good lacing. It has a light and watery mouthfeel with a slight bitterness and hints of caramel.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Slight cloudy golden pour with thin head. Mild hops nose but not too much. Medium body, nice malt flavor with light citrus and other hop tones. A pretty good ESB.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Pours hazy dark burgundy with a fully receding light tan head. Aroma of caramelized alefruits, toffee. Taste is sweet, fruity with notes of plum, raisin, and toffee. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly sticky with lush carbonation. Sticky and under attenuated.

yespr (41884) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours clear orange golden with a creamy/crispy slight off white head. Malty sweet grapefruit aroma. Flavour is more dry than the aroma, giving a dry malt base with the fruitiness mildly adding in on top. Soft malty finish.

mansquito (5727) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2007
It has a wee white head and an amber body. The smell is one that is very fruity and smells almost like an IPA. The taste is bitter and light bodied mostly. There is a little sweetness and it leaves a roasty finish. Some hops, but not too many.

chicagobears (453) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Carbonated golden amber pour. Started drinking this too cold. Leaves a brash grassy hop taste at first. When it warms the toasted malt shines. A rich English style ale.
