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

RSRIZZO (1980) - 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 its 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. Its 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.

BillKismet (3991) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2007
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.
