Brew Review – Left Hand Sawtooth Ale

Reposted from the now defunct Boards & Brews

Brewery: Left Hand Brewing Co.
Brew: Sawtooth Ale
Style: American ESB
ABV: 5.3%
Their Take: It’s all you’ll ever need. Sessionable. Unpretentious. Our original flagship. Proof that a beer can be both complex and balanced. Malty chewiness slowly transitioning over to herbal, earthy hops with a dry finish. Brewed to be enjoyed with friends and to stimulate serendipity.

My Thoughts
For my first review, I decided to go with Left Hand’s Sawtooth Ale.It’s a pretty middle of the road beer as far as ales go with a mild amount of hoppiness to add a nice little kick, but nothing too overpowering. It has a pleasant smell, and a lighter taste with a weaker aftertaste. It won’t knock you back, and you won’t have any problems knocking a few of these back; I definitely agree with their sessionable claim. To me, it’s more of a warm weather beer, very refreshing, something to stand by the grill with. Overall, definitely something worth checking out if you see it in the stores and are looking for a medium ale to get you through the night.

Some New England juice picked up from the source at @proclamationale. Pit stop on the road to Newport for some Ghandi Bot and Fuzzy. I really enjoy this label on Mikkeller's Windy Hill cans. @eaglerockbrew was an add-on in my very first trade years ago, so they've got a special place in my beer memory. Had to bring some back with me when I found it at @bottlecraft while on vacation in San Diego.
