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

Pours a murky dark ruby colour with a average size frothy head. Has a nice aroma balance between caramel, biscuit, resin, and pine. Tastes of caramel, pine, nuts, and herbs. Has a nice medium body with lower carbonation and a dry finish. Overall quite well done amber with good hopping and malt balance.

Bardzo oryginalny posmak i piękna czerwona barwa. Nie kojarzę póki co żadnego innego piwa o podobnym smaku, szkoda że nie umiem go poprawnie nazwać.

jspronck (91) - BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2014
Clear ruby color with short tan head and coarse bubbles. First aroma is strong and fruity (dark fruit like plums and cherries). Then come some pine and caramel. Thin oily texture. Not as flavorful as what the aromas would make you think but still very interesting. Good bitterness that disappears quickly. After that, lingering notes of coffee and dark fruit. That was interesting.

Pours a mahogany colour with some haze. Has a micro head and some lacing. Taste is of pine and citrus but nothing too bold. We get some middle level bitterness. Great beer.
