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

adster (164) - 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.
