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

LordMariscal (20) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 15, 2015
Tomada el Cerveceria KRAKEN . Oviedo. Cerveza ambarina. Roja, con espuma blanca. Ligeramente lupulada. Lo que le da ese toque amargo. Cerveza de trago facil. Largo. Refrescante. Muy recomendable.

lobs_ols (322) - LATVIA - MAR 14, 2015
Clear crimson, medium white head. Vague faded US hop aroma. Medium bitterness, some sweet notes, some roastiness. Finishes bitter. Okay, my sample seems faded, yet within date.

Banksiz (50) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Mallty nose with some caramel and burnt sugar. Pours a medium-dark amber with a rocky head. Sweetish with a bitterness that comes from roasted malts rather than hops. Body is lighter than would be expected from the heavy malty nose. Slightly astringent finish. Good effort. Packs a lot of flavor and body into a 5% beer.

This ale is an amber ale brewed with 5 malts at 5% ABV. Pours a copper colour with light head but average carbonation. Aroma is notable citrus with a bit grassiness. Its taste is still citrus and finishes with bitterness likes orange peel and roastiness. Even though the beer was brewed with 5 types of malts, I think it’s still quite hoppy.

Ragnampiza (621) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 18, 2015
330 ml bottle. Light copper, perfectly clear, with a nice, fluffy and persistent yellowish head. Very pleasent aroma, quite hoppy (piney, resiny, earthy), lots of toffee/caramel notes, a hint of mint bubblegum, overall quite fruity and herbal. Yup, pretty much the same in the mouth, no surprises. Solid and lingering bitterness, quite watery but extremely drinkable, toffee and raspberries in the taste, very clean aftertaste. Average carbonation, light body, creamy texture. Not the perfect mouthfeel and nothing moundblowing, but it’s a pleasent beer, I enjoyed it.

Tometclo (42) - FRANCE - MAR 8, 2015
Une belle couleur ambrée,une mousse beige, cette bière dégage un arôme fruité, houblonné, voir le caramel, Au goût on ressent la levure, le houblon, une finale plus sèche, un bon équilibre. Bouteille 33 Cl V&B Langueux

What an aroma. Lots of floral hops. The taste is a bit thin, but still a very good red ale.

kajser27 (161) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 3, 2015
Ruby copper colored, small off white head. Aroma is the best part, strong in the way of the hops; citrus, passionfruit, floral aroma. Taste is sweet malt, low toffee, citrus, fruit and flowery hoppiness. Medium but lingering bitterness. Light bodied and refreshing.

LED40 (77) - SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2015
Pours red/amber with a blast of hops on the nose. The head reduces fast with some lacing left on the side of the glass. Taste is hop forward with grapefruit mostly noticeable however the malt characteristics are fairly limited. The mouth feel is medium to thin and well carbonated. Overall this is a fine example of an amber ale and is instantly recognizable as a BrewDog beer.
