Had on nitro tap.
Poured a clear light brown with a thick frothy two finger head typical of a nitro poured beer. This head lasted throughout the glass and left thick lacing along the walls of the glass all the way down.
The aroma, unfortunately, was lacking as is all too typical with nitro-poured beers. There is a little bit of caramel and grass present but I really have to struggle to pick that up. Very weak.
The flavor is not too impressive either. Lots of caramel with some lightly toasted malt but it is all a little watery. Some grassy hops are present leading to a light bitterness and a very dry finish. Mouthfeel is very watery and light.
Overall, I was fairly unimpressed with this beer as I think the nitro pour takes away too many subtleties that are very important in a fairly lighter beer such as this one. I would like to try it again sometime in a different format.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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.
