COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5am Saint is The Holy Grail of red ales. We live in a world of disposable deities. Someone, somehow has managed to press that big, flashing moronic override button and we’re hard wired straight into the pockets of false idols trying to make a quick buck. Sadly, for a lot of people the same mentality applies to beer. But who’s to know what’s worth worshiping when monolithic advertising budgets have you sucked down the rabbit hole in the blink of an eye? At BrewDog we are on a mission to open as many people’s eyes as possible. Cast away any aspersions and let the crook of BrewDog be your guide in a whirlwind of conformity and mediocrity. Once this ruby liquid forms a foamy halo around your glass, you’ll never want to look back.
Malts: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

thanatosti (878) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Gall & Gall, Doorn. Dark amber with an off-white head. Malty hoppy aroma. The combination of citrus hops and malts is a good one, making this beer light but very satisfying.

Pepinis (30) - SPAIN - JUL 12, 2014
Color ambar intenso con notas cobrizas. Limpia y de buena formación de espuma pero baja estabilidad. Aroma combinado de lúpulos cítricos y tropicales (notas de pińa y maracuja), la malta suavemente tostada aporta las notas de caramelo. El sabor tiene buena correspondencia con el aroma pero el lúpulo se hace mucho más fuerte y deja las notas más maltosas en un segundo plano. Su cuerpo es leve y su carbonatación es media. En el retrogusto la sensación es levemente astringente, amarga pero con un suave dulzor residual. Muy rica aunque para mi gusto la excesivamente lupulada.

dinkle50 (943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Clear ruby red pour with a single finger head. Caramel aroma. Very sugary. Mouth is medium bodied. Taste is full of caramel. Lots of nice flavors going on here. Nuts, grapefruit. Very juicy.

wiosna (42) - - JUL 6, 2014
Humalan tuoksu vahvahko, ei kovin hedelmäinen. Ehkä hieman jopa leipäinen? Sivumakuna häivähdys rautaa. Suutuntuma miellyttävä.

mircoas (66) - ITALY - JUL 6, 2014
33 cl @ enoteca. Buona ambrata per la casa scozzese anche se stufa un pochetto.

Beerenberger (1377) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2014
The nose is hop forward - grapefruit, citrus, and tropical fruit. A cloudy Texas tea hued pour with an ivory ring and no lacing. The palate follows the nose. Tropical fruit, florals. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, easy to drink no matter the time of day.

metalspice (28) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2014
Starter rolig pĺ smak, men det ĺpenbarer seg en nřtteaktig ettersmak som redder helhetsinntrykket.

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUN 30, 2014
Pompázatos és nem mindennapi színben, sötét borostyán árnyalatban tündöklő főzet fakéreg, akác és gyanta, valamint fűszeres komló illatjegyeivel. Meghatározhatatlanul sokrétű ízvilága a komló markáns nyomvonala mentén halad, mely érezhetően összetett és dús, a gyümölcsös vonulat helyett azonban leginkább fás, kissé mogyorós színezetű. Szokatlan és rendkívül különleges ízvilággal rendelkező darab.

sdg (23) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Amber brown-ish color, quickly dissipating foam - very hoppy, citrus, flowers - bitter taste - light body, rather thin - bitter, lightly sour finish with citrus.
