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

The red fruit aroma filled the room when I opened the bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a dark amber with a moderate off-white head. Feel nice on the palate with a medium body. I would like a more bitter finish on this one, but otherwise, it’s ideal.

ruigo (1153) - PORTUGAL - OCT 3, 2014
33cl bottle. Dark hazy amber with a creamy off-white head. Red fruits, caramel, grassy and hoppy aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is quite balanced with a more bitter finish. Overall, a nice brew but far from the best I had from BrewDog.

Yet another beautiful beer from Brewdog. Like homebrew beer. Hazy redish color. Nice aroma, very fruity, like taste. I liked it.

"surprised to see this one so high - it gave me high expectations that weren’t met. 2 months short of the stamped best by date, but it tasted a little stale. biscuit malt forward, with nice bittering hops, but little on the aromatic side. looks and feels average. meh."

Lätt brunröd färg. Doftar fruktig/citrig humle med en riktigt bra smak som passar mig perfekt. Ölet har en precis lagom beska. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Saeglopur (370) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma of citrus, berries, peach, grass, caramel, roast. Taste with about the same aromas, also some tea. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes bitter, citric, fruity and a bit roasty. Tasty! Lovely berry aromas, just the right amount of sweetness and bitterness and really refreshing and sessionable. Pretty much how I imagine a perfect beer of this style!

Really nice hoppy beer! Fudge, pine in the aroma. Haven’t tried this brewery in a while but this was solid. Its even old but good

robto (16) - Belas, PORTUGAL - SEP 27, 2014
33cl bottle from "cerveteca" bar in Lisbon. It pours a dark amber color with a moderate and non-persistent beige head. Aroma is of hops, fruits (specially berries and other red fruits) and some floral notes.Taste is of course sweet hoppy, but with toasted malts, caramel and later it builds up some bitterness at the end. It is moderately carbonated with a medium body and a dry finish. Overall a very nice and enjoyable Amber Ale from BrewDog. I would drink it again.

Aroma: intense citrus and red fruit; Appearance: pale orange-reddish; Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: abrupt finish, oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation Pleasant buttery notes, the intense hop aroma doesn’t mean intense bitterness. Well-rounded, sessionable.
