Pours a deep copper colour with a white head. Filtered clear.
Smells a little yeasty with a toasty malt background, notes of citric and fruity hops linger throughout.
Tastes of citric and slightly floral/fruity hops with toasted malts in the background, finishes with a bit of a toast or biscuit. The hops really dance around on this one and become more and more dominant sip after sip. Not as balanced as an ESB should be, but it tastes pretty good.
I think this should really be categorized as an American Pale Ale rather than an ESB as it is a bit unbalanced and what little malty character exists shortly gives way to hops rather quickly. Technicality aside, this is an easy drinking session beer with some pretty nice hoppy notes.

Nitro bottle, Best By 05/08/14
L - very rigorous pour, as indicated on cap and label, reveals a copper colored ale with a smooth ivory head that eventually rises to half a finger
S - very herbal aroma, caramel, vanilla and bread are all faintly present
T - bread, caramel, vanilla, herbal hop,
F - extra smooth feel, medium body, goes down easily
O - I'm not sure which I prefer (regular Sawtooth or Nitro Sawtooth), but this one is definitely unique. Glad to try it.
