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: Maris Otter, Caramalt, Munich Malt, Crystal and Dark Crystal Malts
Hops:Cascade, Amarillo, Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe, Ahtanum, Centennial
Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

massingasetta (555) - München, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2016
Even if Punk IPA is more noteworthy in regard to the hype, this Red Ale is really really good. Perhaps this is simply a style I love and I am rating this style up - but this beer is really good.

Jultsu (485) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2016
BBE 28-01-16. Punertavan ruskea, kohtalainen vaahto joka jää. Tummaa marjaa, runkoa tuoksussa, raikkaahko. Suutuntuma marjaisa, karamellinen, karkkinen, hapokas, jälkimakuna makea marja, ripaus kuivuutta. Hyvää settiä.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambrée foncée, mousse assez faible, peu de tenue. Une palette aromatique subtile : caramel, du fruit, quelque chose de boisé ou résineux. Carbonnation assez faible. Trouvée à la braserie Delneste - Froidmont.

Shared bottle at my sister’s. Pours dark reddish amber with off-white head. Aroma of caramel, pine needles, raspberries, coffee; some spicy-peppery notes. Tastes bitter, thin bodied. Dry mouth feel, some astringency.

craighill (96) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Pours a chestnut red, very clear, with one-finger coarse white head that is extremely persistent. Aroma is mango, ripe nectarines, resin, grass, basically Robinson’s tropical fruit juice drink with hints of mint or menthol. Impressive. In comparison the taste seems slightly thin. Finish is neither sweet nor dry but somehow neutral. A bit disappointing, even for a low gravity beer. Many boring brown beers have more malt action going on in the back than this. Still a very good session beer though.
