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

Pretty cloudy copper red to almost pink coloured beer, aery yellow to beige head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet fruit, raisins, strawberry candy, peaches, passion fruits, dried plums, fudge, bit of milk chocolate, pepper. Very complex and interesting! MF: soft carbon, light to medium body, cit creamy texture. Taste: bit sour start, red currants, some citrus, sweet caramel hint, fruity hops, bit floral even (thinking rose petals and chamomile here). Aftertaste: sour touches with bitter hops, lots of grapefruit.

Bruin amber bier, beige schuimkraag. Caramel, citrus, dennenaalden en wat kruidige aroma’s. Moutige smaak, zoetig, bitter, caramel, citrus met een mooie hop in de achtergrond. Fris en drinkbaar. Gekocht bij de AH.

Most refreshing, complex tasting beer I’ve had in ages. This is beer that really hits the spot with me; it’s completely satisfying! :-)

SlovakSniper (3227) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2011
(33 cl, batch 192) Dark amber ale with a sheet of foam. Some lacing. Nose is filled with toasted malts, grapefruit, raisins, mango and more. Very nice fruitiness. Maybe some leafy hops. Not so sure about that. Anway, taste is moderalty sweet with some delicious and bitter hops. Very pleasant palate : body is medium, carbonation is moderate to soft and texture seems to be oily. Nice lasting smooth bitter finish. Overall, very drinkable stuff.

suurjuust (1101) - ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2011
Brownish ruby red, slightly off white head. Aroma of caramel, spice, pine needles and some citrus notes. The taste begins malty, caramelly, citrusy and finishes piney, bitter, with citrus notes in the background. Long finish. Interesting and refreshing beer.

Koelschtrinker (10836) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 4, 2011
Scharf bitterer Antrunk mit trockener Säure. Der blumige Hopfen steht dabei eher im Hintergrund. Holzige Noten kommen im Mittelteil hervor, die Säuerlichkeit wird ein wenig stärker, die Bitterkeit lässtwässrige Noten durchblitzen. Rundes und volles, dazu süffiges Bier. Super Erfrischung! 11/12/12/11/11/12

Bottle. Pours a medium red. Fluffy head, reasonable carbonation. Hop aroma is stunning, full of floral aromatic character. The taste follows suit with a blast off sweet hop, then an almost chewy malt sensation. Not as bitter as I remember, lovely beer.
