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

on tap-pours an off white head that laces and gold/amber color. Aroma is mild medium malt. Taste is mild medium malt with hops bitterness. OK carbonation.

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.

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 (5335) - 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.

Poured a amberish small head smalle lacing. Aroma was very musty. Flavor was of caramel malts woody some fruitiness to it as well. Mouthfeel was a little off. Okay but not great.

I was a little disappointed in this beer from Left Hand after devouring the Milk Stout. It had great potential after the pour. Rich amber color with a thin head with a little lacing. The first drink was ok, but the next had an odd lasting taste, and it wasn’t the hops.
