THIS BEER IS

A hoppy Amber Ale that won World's Best Amber Beer in the World Beer Awards 2007. Malt and hops are in perfect harmony in this incredibly balanced beer. Biscuity, bitter and packing a surprisingly hoppy punch, this beer ultimately morphed into 5AM Saint.

BREWER'S TIP

Brewers Tip Icon

Keep the fermentation temperature as close to 19°C as possible. This will ensure the yeast creates a more neutral flavour profile, allowing the hops to really shine through.
