330ml bottle. Aroma is light apple-ish hops, sweet, dark fruits, some malt. Appearance is cloudy brown with a fine brown-ish foam. Taste is light bitter, very light sweet. A bit watery when drunk very cold, better a bit warmer. Low carbonation, a little alcoholic. A long lasting, dry mouth-feel. Overall a very good Amber Ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good Reds are hard to come by, ones that stack up in flavour with their more sought after brethren, the Pales and IPAs. Thank God for the 5A.M. Saint. Tis beer does it all right; the appearance is a rusty orangey red with a lacing off white head. Notes of caramel, honey, butterscotch, leather and some mild barnyard dance with fresh smelling resin and herbal hops. The resulting taste is a blend of all those smells held together with a pleasing mid body and a fine bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
With its fruity, hoppy aroma and a taste from dry red fruits, caramels, and a slight nutty finish; this one emerges as an amber I could actually drink.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle marked down at Bishop’s Cellar. Pours a transparent reddish amber with a thin beige head. Vibrant nose with caramel, toffee malts, a bit of hoppiness (touch of grapefruit?). Rich malty flavour with a rising bitterness at the finish. Kinda sticky on the palate. Wish it lived up to its aroma, but still very pleasant.
