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

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 21, 2012
Ambrata. Aroma floreale, luppolato con qualcosa di conifera e di agrume e una venatura di uva. Al gusto si presenta subito amaricante, ma mai esageratamente, con un ventaglio di luppoli molto ampio. Pompelmo, resina e erba sono i sentori che si notano di più. Finale pulito e prolungato. Rinfresca e costringe a compiere il sorso successivo.

joeneugs (3844) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. It pours cloudy amber with an orangy head. The aroma has some plum, raisins, citrus and pine. The flavor is very fruity with peaches, plums, bread and a hint of brown sugar. It has a nice bitter finish. Pretty good amber definitely on the hoppy side.

Nilz (442) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
330ml bottle. Thin head but quickly dissipated to a narrow rim with a few lace-like elements. Pours a dark red clear glass. Floral aroma, tastes of treakle weaness and lasting bitterness. Medium to full bodied, smooth luxury finish, light carbonation. For me one to linger over and enjoy.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a beautiful red copper with thin head. Nose is spicy with banana hints. Slightly thin body. Malt-caramel finish with hops and some fruity notes. Interesting.

pilsnerrogge (2594) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2012
Bottled:
Deep amber colour. Dense head. I like the aroma: hops, ripe fruit, a little bit of shampoo, a little bit of licorice. Very bitter with thin mouthfeel. Pine, wood and hops. A bit rough and simplistic.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle, from Morrison Scunthorpe. Hazy brown, thin but sustained off white head and moderate condition. Big hop resin nose with hints of tangy brett and a gentle floral soapiness, restrained hop bitterness with a chalky powdery note and solid resinous citrus notes, lingering hop resin and bitterness in the finish

SirLimpsalot (2517) - SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2012
Trevlig doft, fast smaken är besk och lite gammal stekpanna. Tydlig humle och malt men lite enformig. En svagare version av punk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
Amber with a grey dense head. Fruity aroma with notes of pine, grass, peach and sweet liquorice. Sweet flavour with a citric and bitter finish.

brownyonder (266) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Pours a reddish brown with a white head. Hops, caramel and malt on the nose. Caramel and pine flavours.

slakemythirst (197) - - MAR 10, 2012
Blommig doft av rosor och maskrosor. Smaken bjuder på en dimension av ruby red grapefrukt. Kroppen kunde varit lite maffigare..men man kan inte få allt. Eftersmaken och beskan varar länge. God.
