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

ACD (651) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 26, 2012
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 33cl bottle. Pours deep copper red with thin off white head. Tons of pungent fruity hops and caramel malt on the nose. Deep fruit & pine flavour, bit of fig, plenty of caramel malt. Wonderfully satisfying finish, long aftertaste - a storming amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cerveza color ambar, con cabeza mediana que presenta regular retencion. En el aroma al igual que la Trashy Blond y la Punk IPA, aunque con menor intensidad, tiene notas de frutas tropicales y notas citricas caracteristicas de las India Pale Ale, ademas tiene notas de malta y de caramelo; en resumen es una aroma excelente con un gran balance. El sabor es exquisito, con un gran balance entre malta y lupulo, es referescante, cremoso, de cuerpo medio, con nivel medio de malta y medio-alto de lupulo, con notas citricas, de frutas tropicales (mango, maracuya, piña), y de caramelo. Brew Dog me ha sorprendido gratamente con su linea base de cervezas, ya que todas poseen un gran balance tanto en aroma como en sabor; simplemente deliciosas. El unico problema es el precio, pero esperemos que en cuanto su demamanda aumente (que estoy seguro de que lo hará), se importe un mayor volumen, y por lo tanto se redusca el precio.

5 AM Saint really lives up to the holier-than-thou, pretentious notes that accompany this beer on the side of the bottle. Simply put this the sheer taste of this amber ale has catapulted it into one of my top beers of all time. Nice to see that Brewdog can walk the talk. Though it must be noted I preferred this in the cask over the keg. Unfortunately it seems as though Brewdog have stopped using casks altogether

Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Big hop aroma and flavour well balanced with malt. Very close in style to an American IPA. A great beer.

Panzerfaust (561) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle from Jumbo, Batch #118 In the glass shows a hazy reddish amber color with a big fluffy off-white crown that diminishes slowly. Aroma is nicely hoppy and fruity, IPA like. It shows notes of apples, pine, resin, hay and lemongrass. Great! Taste is quite bitter, intense and fresh. Hints of resin, lemon, mango and grainy, caramel notes from the malty backbone. 25 IBU my ass! Feels dry hopped and with at least 75 IBU. Dry finish, very drinkable and with good carbonation. Long aftertaste of hops. A rich, bitter amber ale with loads of character.

Bottle 33 cl. Dark amber with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel hops and grapefruit. Sweet taste of malt, caramel and grapefruit. Great hop bitterness from American hop varieties, great dryness and a long bitter hop finish
