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.

Pours a nice clear copper collor with a fine, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is light with notes of citrus and malt. Decent mouthfeel leads to a fairly smooth and balanced taste. I note some nutty characteristics along with the malt and hops. A slightly sour finish. Not a bad beer.

deze extra special bitter is wel voller van smaak dan de normale bitter , de middelmatige bitterheid haalt de zacht mout tonen wat op en geven lichte hints van caramel,biscuit en bloemige hop alle wel wat vaag

Nice clean bread and malt aroma with light sweet notes. Pours a pale clear reddish brown with a thin tan head of small bubbles. Tastes of mild hops and balanced bread malt notes. Nothing overpowering. Plenty of carbonation. Very drinkable.

Clear, deep gold pour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malty with some mild, spicy hop notes. It has a medium, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a smooth, balanced finish.

Quick3Beers (1088) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Pours a nice clear copper from a bottle, quickly dissipating slightly off-white head. Aroma of caramel and whole wheat cracker. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy given the aroma. A little watery. Okay beer.

Redmarr (1) - Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2016 does not count
Not a bad Bitter, had it on tape served a bit too cold, too much head and very little aroma. Im sure it would be much improved if it had been aged in wood cask and drawn with a hand pump instead of gassed, but sadly this is America but I can dream of a nice pint of Hook Norton while drinking this.

From the tap at Constant Spring. Amber with very thin white head. Not much to the nose. Sweet malt, carmel and a little tangy. Tasted better as it warmed up. Nice and smooth, didn't linger on the palate. Good beer, so I had another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
