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

Ambro206 (214) - ITALY - FEB 14, 2015
L’idea di cinuqe malti e cinque luppoli un po’ mi spaventa. Mi ricorda la birra degli avanzi. In compenso questa birra è ben lontana dallo stereotipo. Un ale ammaliante. Il profumo di agrumi è netto al primo impatto. Nel bicchiere si presente ambrata con una bella schiuma. In bocca è piacevolmente bilanciata L’amaro si sente nel retrogusto.

Hugi (437) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2015
Brown with an intensive reddish shine and a little hazy. Medium head with a nice lacing. Aroma of hopfs and resins, grapefruit, strawberry, vanilla, grapes and sweetish. Wow! Medium-bitter taste, fruity, a bit phenolic at the end. Bitter finish, a bit medicinic, full and long lasting taste.

PabloZab (190) - Wroclaw, POLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Ciemno miedziana barwa z genialna bialo-zolta piana ladnie oblepiajaca szklo. Aromat bardzo delikatny, slodowy, swiezy. W smaku lekkie, aksamitne, slodkawe, slodowe, goryczki jako takiej nie czulem. Dlugi przyjemny posmak slodkosci na koncu. Bardzo dobrze pijalne.

Ysok02 (179) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2015
Robe ambre, belle mousse. Nez puissant sur le miel, le malt caramelisé, le pain d’épices, sur un fond de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque épicée et caramelisée, belle rondeur, rétro de miel, finale raffraîchissante sur une belle amertume. Une bière typée, longue et équilibrée.

trapped (1064) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 10, 2015
Draught at Ginger Man. Hazy copper red with small beige creamy head, crisp malt aroma, light caramel taste, hint of citrus, thin body, medium carbonation, medium finish with alcohol aftertaste that surfaces rather late. Very interesting brew.

estoniancraft (35) - ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2015
Aroma of sweet and nutty malt. Color of clear deep copper. Fruity and sharp initial flavor with lingering hop bitterness. So many nuanced favors. Really well executed

Franckg (248) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Arômes de malts caramélisés et de houblons. Le tout reviens en bouche suivis par des brèves effluves florales et une finale houblonnée.

Ungewöhnlich, wie alle Biere der Brewdog Company. Unglaublich intensiver Geruch nach Citrus Früchten. Ungewöhnlich kräftiger, intensiver Geschmack nach Citrus und weihnachtlichen Gewürzen. Ein tolles Bier wenn man experimentierfreudig ist!

Dzhigga (187) - Kirov, RUSSIA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Tea-like browny color with cmall head. Very complex aroma of somewhat like beriies (cranberry?), citrus and something roasted. Taste is lightly sweet with bunch of hops bitternes in the finish. Tasty and interesting beer.
