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

24-Feb-07 12oz bottle from sampler 12-pk. Bronze-amber color, clear, with beige head of tight foam that lasts and laces in sheets. Aroma is plain, a bit mineral, and toasted malts (pretzel). No significant hop character in aroma of flavor until a quick dry finish. Stuff is pretty dry front to back, actually. Nothing to write home about.

Cloudy reddish brown pour with a light head. Cean and sweet with caramel, nutty, malty flavor. Another good one from left hand.

Bottle. my first left hand product. I was very impressed and would like to try other left hand beers. First thing i noticed is there is almost the perfect ballance between hops and malt but malt actually prevails a little.

Sawtooth Ale pours a cloudy copper color, with a light white head with a little bit of lacing. This was my first ESB and I rather enjoyed it.

Malt leads over the hops. I was thirsty when I drank this -- quite drinkable. Slight medicinal edge to it and finish wasnt as good as rest.

Bought at Capones in Norristown. Pours copper with a slight haze. Biscuit and earthy hop aroma. Sweet flavor but not cloying or sticky..clean with a good hop balance. Caramel malts and nutty flavor like a toasted victory malt followed by a nice mellow spicy hop finish. Very nicely balanced.

Very mild aroma, nice red/brown color. Strong hoppiness but not too bitter, and a nutty sweetness as well.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2007
Dark amber colored, medium sized light brown head. Chocolate, toffee, caramel, strong bitter hops in aroma, slight lemon also there. Medium bodied. Flavor is sweeter with caramel and also good hops, flowers and some sourness too. Aftertaste is hopped, still slightly watery flavored. Biting carbonation.
