Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

I served this beer from the bottle in a pilsener glass.. Good rich foam, nice amber colour.

The smell is spicy with some notes of roasted barley and some sweet fruits in it. Good fresh smell, crisp and delightfull.

Great taste, smooth and totally not strong tastes of beer. Very rich of fine barley and fruitiness. Apricot, oranges with a touch of hot spices.

Another great creation from Scotland from BrewDog, the 5 A.M. Saint.

Appearance: decent clarity, burnt amber color, very little head

Aroma: citrusy and grapefruit, with darker malt caramel and fruit notes

Taste: exploding with citrus hop flavor from the start, it slowly mellows to a caramelly and malty fruity flavor, butt finishes bitter with grapefruit and tart orange notes

Mouthfeel: medium body, medium carbonation, slight bite

Overall impression: American style amber ale done by the Brits. Nice citrus flavors complemented by dark caramel and fruit malt flavors

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, BB 22/04/2014, served mildly chilled in a tall tumbler. Notes: the front label writes “iconoclastic amber ale”, while the side label gives a long… essay (propaganda-style) on how the general public needs more educating about beers, blah blah blah, the UK beer scene is sick and they’re the doctor…??!! Seriously?

A: pours a clear, dark chestnut brown colour, coming with a thick layer of beige creamy head and moderate flows of carbonation.
S: almost like an ultra-aromatic Premium Bitter, the hoppy Altos sing in front of the deeper toffee-ish Baritones as of caramel-, crystal-, and/or roast-malts, giving a richly fruity and floral performance full of rose petals, longan-fruits, sweet citrus, jammy dark berries/raisins, and sweetened black tea. Weighty and creamy at the same time.
T: lively but not too fizzy, the creamy foretaste is immediately bready+roast-malty, citric-peel-ish, and dark-fruity, with plentiful aromatic notes of toasted nuts, raisins, deepening tannic sprigy and herbal bitterness as of roast malts plus mixed hops, and milder undertones of lightly smoked dark tea. Moderately dry-ish in the finish, where a lively flow of acidity reaches a harmony with the wonderfully attenuated sweetness and bitterness.
M&O: softly carbonated, medium bodied, yet tasting surprisingly light on the palate, this is a balanced, deliciously hoppy and also complex-malty brew very much my choice for a session beer, packing so much good stuff at 5%abv. Recommended (i.e. the beer itself, NOT the manifesto on the beer label…!).
