pours a nice rich deep hazy amber. Minimal head though, and a very small ring around the edge disappears. No lacing.
Smells hoppy and grapefruitey and slightly sweet with a hint of malt balance.
It tastes pretty yummy. What I would expect in an ESB. A dry hop crispness smacks you in the face right off the bat - I happen to like that... It stays throughout it's journey down your throat. After the inital whallop, grapefruit joins the flavor, and hangs around.
The mouthfeel is kind of nice, but a bit thin for my tastes. Per the style? I think maybe a bit watery. The crisp hop saves it, though, tingling for the first half of the drink in a nice fizz. After that it drys up into a citrus flavor with hints of rind.
The finish is very clean.
I think the body is a little thin.
This is a really good ESB. In my opinion, one of the better that I have tried. I recommend trying it.

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.
