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

Bottle. Amber red in colour, white head. In aroma very nice hoppy aroma - citrus fruits, mango with some caramel background. In taste solid bitterness - grapefruit-like and malty base very nicely mixed, bitterness could be weaker. Medium carbonation and body. Very nice one.

Amber (duh). Aroma is biscuity and caramel - sweet. Taste is the same with toffee malt bitterness at end. Overall, pretty good, but I just don’t dig amber ales.

I en tid då filosofer och vetenskapsmän inte ens kan enas om huruvida verkligheten existerar oberoende av sinnen som filtrerar den, känns det lite futtigt att sitta och dividera över om BrewDog 5 A.M. Saint förtjänar en åtta eller nia i betyg på totalen. För tusan, den kanske inte ens existerar, och så sitter jag och recenserar en icke-vara som utgått ur sortimentet och kanske aldrig ens ingått i det. Bäst att jag tar en till öl och ser om någonting av det här klarnar för mig.

xlts (21) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Small head. Clear, redd-ish, neatly-looking beer. Aroma is that of caramel malts, slightly hoppy. Strong bitterness in the taste, very grapefruit-like (rather than herbal and grassy). Very good.

Inte bäst i stan men sitter man på ett ställe i Edinburgh och käkar musslor så funkar det fint ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
