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

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Tap at brewdog Big disappointment. Pours bright copper hue with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is musty sweet and pretty boring. Seems old. Flavors are caramel sweetness lite hops. Sort of dull.

michael_bb (55) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 13, 2016
Caramel, clove and weed. Clear amber. Not too strong bitterness, the aftertaste is really pleasant. Ideal carbonation, could be a bit thicker though. Very enjoyable.

jakubwloszcz (158) - Piastów, POLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Barwa ciemnobursztynowa, trochę rubinowa, piwo jest mętne. Piana drobna, niezbyt obfita, ładnie zdobi szkło. Intensywny aromat owoców tropikalnych, karmelu, cytrusów. W smaku jest dość wytrawne, lekkie, orzeźwiające. Oprócz karmelu i cytrusów, są również nuty leśne, sosnowe. Goryczka średnia, trochę zalegająca.

hrabren (772) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 12, 2016
Amber with thick and lasting head. Strong aroma, rose, candy. Sweet, hops develop, smoky in the finish. Very drinkable and refreshing, lasting aftertaste.

anstei (1015) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle from Drinks of the World Zurich. Lots and lots of grassy hops aroma. Spring-like. A little more malts than a pale ale making this a tad amber, but really not so much different. Sweet, medium body, good carbonation.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Echon (328) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2016
Dark red light-bodied ale, with a fruity and lightly malty aroma. Mild malt flavour with a bit of spicy hops, and a somewhat dry and lightly bitter taste. Overall, this beer is just too mild and not very tasty. Nothing really tickles my tastebuds.

oldrtybastrd (4951) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Pours a nice hazy orange. Aromas of caramel, hint of fruit and hops. Nice creamy malt taste with a nice hop bitterness.

A very drinkable take on the hoppy but not crazy hoppy amber style. I like it and would happily down several.
