I'm pissed about this one. It was a waste of $11 for a six-pack. The malt flavor is not assertive enough to enjoy as a dark beer. (although I have to admit I don't have a use for stouts and this may have been a variation of that). The hop did not compliment the malt. To sell this as an 'All American Ale' is, at best, a misnomer if not outright prevarication. It's has a flat, sour flavor that is unpleasant to drink alone and provides no acceptable compliment to food. The only thing it has going for it is that it's not a BudMillerCoors product.

I don't know if I got an under carbonated bottle but it tasted flat and was difficult to swallow. I would try it again if I didn't have to pay for it.

Great beer ! You've got to dump it into a glass to get any head . All their nitros are that way hence the "pour hard" . But overall a very silky smooth feel and great taste . One of my favorites .

Sawtooth in name only. The nitro can be a plus or a minus to a brew. I did not like this addition to an otherwise great beer.

12 oz nitro-bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear chestnut color. The head isn't that high for a nitro-beer - at less than a finger high - and is colored white. However, the texture and softness of the head is incredible.

S: Smells rather dull, expected given the serving method. When it warms up, though, it picks up notes of apricot, caramel, toffee, butter/diacetyl, and maybe a touch of vanilla. For a nitro'd ESB, the nose could have been far worse.

T: Toasted caramel malts start things off, giving way to a mildly fruited finish. There are some touches of vanilla flavor I enjoy. I also like how the blandness covers up the less desirable ESB notes...wait, what? Sorry. Let's just say it's a boring beer that's at least easy to down.

M: This actually has a nice feel. It starts off relatively full-bodied, before immediately turning bone-dry - it stops just short of being watery, however. No real carbonation, but thankfully the dryness renders the need for the former void.

O: It's a decent party beer, no more, no less. If someone buys a case of this - other than me, for obvious reasons (bland, ESB) - for a celebration and it's the only thing available, damn right I'll kill a few of these in a night.

Nice mouthfeel. Not as flavorful.as I had hoped it would be. Nice body and head. Nitro always yields a good feel. Not as tasty and crafty as their other offerings.
