It's a bunch of fives from BrewDog with their American red ale 5AM Saint: 5% ABV, 5 malts and 5 hops (actually 6 but I like the pattern they're going for). Doesn't it look stunning? It's a beautiful slightly opaque red/brown colour with a small, loose cream coloured head that vanishes quite quickly.
There's nothing subtle about the aroma with a huge hit of malt, caramel and orange marmalade citrus so I couldn't wait to dive in. With a wonderful mixture of malts and hops, this really tingles the tastebuds. Sweet malts and caramel make are followed by a bitter citrus tang but these conflicting flavours are seamlessly woven together on a biscuit base.
The only thing that lets it down is the body. It has a very watery mouthfeel and relatively low carbonation so it feels quite light despite the amazing flavours. With a bit more body and a longer lasting head this would have been a five star beer without doubt. I'd still have another one, so Ale Be Seeing You again!
