8/22/2010: Today was my buddies bachelor party in Atlantic City. We showed up to firewater’s bar a little later than everyone around 1pm. Pretty cool little place with 50 taps, but the prices were not to friendly. I guess that is to be expected in a tourist town.

The nose on Saw Tooth is very mild, some caramel graininess. Really strong flavors for an ESB, biscuit, caramel, grainy, and a big bitter earthiness to it. This is by far the most bitter of any ESB I have ever tried, too bitter in my opinion. Average mouthfeel and carbonation. I will admit this isn’t my favorite style in the first place, but this beer was below average as well.

Picture of the day: Facebook status of the week. Punctuation is key.
