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

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

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.

exeter (362) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
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.

Ulysse (137) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2014
Strong sweet fruity hoppy aroma. Really bitter finish which hangs around in the back of the mouth. Taste is rather different from it’s odour.

Très bonne odeur fruité et de houblon. Goût léger, le palais est décevant. l’arrière goût de houblon permet de revenir sur une note plus positive.

A good red aie. Very good, straight forward flavor, not overly complex but tasty. Just a touch of hops. Nice drink.

No retention and very light lacing. Smells of brown sugar, dark fruits and burnt sugar. Tastes of dark fruits, brown sugar and booze. No aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
