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

Le très bon compromis entre le goût de litchi et l’amertume d’une bonne bière. Un vrai plaisir.

LicoriceKing (48) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2013
Deep amber color. Aroma: Caramel, pine, grass, bread, cereal, floral and citrus. Taste: Very piney, grapefruit, citrus, caramel, coffee and bread. Light mouthfeel. This is so great, definitely my favourite among BrewDogs sessionable core range, a lot of interesting notes you wouldn’t expect from the style. Nice malt flavours and hop flavours.

A mi gustó una de las mejores florales qué he probado. Sabe cuadrar bien el tipo de lúpulo sin saturar con el sabor a flores. Muy equilibrada, para repetir, de las pocas de su estilo qué repetiría.
