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

interesting hop character. citrus with some latin fruit. touch of straw in the light malt backing. receded hop character that fades while the brew is in mouth and finishes with the malt so cleanly. like a multicolored jawbreaker. what is it about colorado and beer?!

Amber color with great big frothy head that rises over the glass without spilling over. Hop aroma of grapefruit, ear wax, and shampoo, with malty bread and caramel undertones. Earhty english style ESB taste.

An excellent aroma and a really, really pleasing fruit taste to boot. Just an excellent beer. The boys at Left Hand have shown once again that they’re some of the best in the business in the USA.

Fruity, nut aroma, and the taste is no departure. Deep, heavy-bodied with a wide aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had this beer on 5/7/1999. Color is a deep rich brownish gold with very light carbonation and light head. Unlike there Pale it’s crystal clear with no sediment at all. Aroma is malty with a light hint of hops. Taste is sharp and clean. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp with a very light malt flavor. The finish is a sharp malt taste followed by a medium hop bitterness. It’s a refreshing brew with a good clean finish. A great beer any time you feel like a refreshing bitter brew.

This is a great late night finishing beer. As its description says, as it warms, more flavor comes out. Leave it out of the fridge for 30 minutes or so and a distinct chocolate flavor comes out.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Bottle. Medium foamy head which dissipates to light. Very rich, buttery sweet aroma; not too hoppy. Decent blend of hops and malt with clean, lingering finish.

Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Cloudy orange color with a little bit of big-bubbled head. Very little aroma. Flavor is a little hoppy with some citrus sweetness. A little metallic aftertaste. Not bad.
