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.

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.

I poured this strange looking beer that I could not figure out who brewed, Anchor or Brewdog? I guess nobody wants to claim it. The beer poured a dark amber beer with a tan head that lasted all of a minute. The beer is a hop bomb so I did not like it. It also tasted like grass to me. I will not buy again but if you like grassy beer go for it.
