Notes/Commercial Description:
Start the car. The lights are about to turn amber. Buy the ticket, take the ride. Past the alley where thieves and pimps sell corporate brews and good men soak it up like vermin, blissful in their ignorance. Past the jackhammers who want their three and a half percent. Keep going. Towards that golden orb, the size of Zeus’s ass, that hovers over this crazy town. Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink amber, and drive like a bastard towards that saintly light.

2.5/5  rDev -34.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Poured from a bottle into an Irish pub style (real) pint glass in low altitude Galway, Ireland on September 17th, 2010. Pours a dark, clear amber with a three finger head that retains for two and a half minutes. Some cream in the moderately thick head. Looks mildly inviting.

Smell: A strong berry, fruity smell. Maybe raspberry? Hard to detect individual flavours, indicative of good balance. Definitely ester.

Taste: Two notes of compatible berry flavours, followed by a lackluster finish. There is a rather nice sweet berry undertone that holds throughout, which is the best part of this beer. Up to the finish, the beer is built fairly well but the finish destroys the balance of the beer.

Mouthfeel: Awkward movement from wet in the body to dry on the finish, neither of which is refreshing. The cream of the head never comes through, which is disappointing.

Drinkability: This is an ambitious amber ale, but its biggest failing is the dry, contrasting mouthfeel of the finish.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

I had this beer at a hotel bar in Sweden on 6/19/14. The best by date was 6/19/14 (perfect timing, right? wrong). Dense, opaque amber appeareneceand a medium-dark head. Head didn't last long. Taste was good for an amber, but not remarkable. An enjoyable beer that was unfortunately past it's prime. I'd recommend trying 5 A.M. Saint if you can find it fresh or on tap.
