Formerly 5 A.M. Saint + Five AM

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.

Came in a can. Tan colour with offwhite head. Lovely raspberry and sherbet nose. Sweet start, then some raspberry flavour before a somewhat spicy finish. Good stuff, but rather more mellow than the nose suggested.

Appearance: Tawny, burgundy amber, attractive and clean with nice fuzzy off-white head. Lovely web of lace.

Aroma: Fruity, hops accounted for! Unusual for an amber but certainly nice. “21st century red ale” indeed!

Taste: Ideal balance between toasty, biscuity malts and crisp citrus and fruity hops. Very enjoyable.

330ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber glass, with a small head of foam that dissipates quite quickly. Lacy foam clings to the side of the glass as you drink.

The smell is great. Roasted malts, toasted peanuts, caramel are the first scents that hit your nose, followed by faint coffee and herbal notes.

The taste is very moreish. Those roasty sweet smells are present in the flavor, and balanced by a gentle fresh tang.

Feels smooth on the tongue, with a dry finish.

Overall, a very moreish beer, whose balance of flavors makes it easy to drink more than one bottle.

Pours clear amber. Smells malty. Not much character with this one slightly malty with a light hop finish. Very smooth but a little weak. Could be better.
