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

Amber to coper coloured ale. Sweet / bitter with lots of caramel, malt and some hops in the taste. You describe it as a malty amber ale, because of the caramel and bread tast. It’s medium bodied, with a dry ending (use of pale ale malt?). The hops aren’t dominating but are present. Nice bitterness but in the end a little too astringent in my opinion. I bought it in Belgium maybe if you can drink it fresh, the hops will cause more balance and the bitterness will be less astringent.

Ruby copper colored, small off white head. Aroma is the best part, strong in the way of the hops; citrus, passionfruit, floral aroma. Taste is sweet malt, low toffee, citrus, fruit and flowery hoppiness. Medium but lingering bitterness. Light bodied and refreshing.

What an aroma. Lots of floral hops. The taste is a bit thin, but still a very good red ale.

Procent (235) - POLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Bardzo ładny, słodki, owocowy aromat. Dojrzałe owoce tropikalne, karmel, lekko ziołowe. Wprost bucha aromatem. Piana raczej niewielka, ale ładny lacing. Barwa rubinowa, jest opalizacja. W smaku niestety już nie tak dobrze jak w aromacie, jest owocowo, ale bardziej cytrusowo, a nawet... arbuzowo, wodniście, lekka słodycz goryczka raczej niska, wysycenie też. Jest bardzo pijalne, ale po takim aromacie wielki niedosyt w smaku. Warka do 9.04.2015r.

Magnifique couleur rouge pour cette bière aux gout herbacé, légèrement fumé. Se déguste plus qu’elle ne se boit. Un Regal.

Beachmaster (195) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 21, 2015
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy reddish amber, with a moderate beige head that quickly fades. Nose is very faint hops. Taste is all hops. Grossly over-hopped with no real flavor other than astringent bitterness. Disappointing.

Super Nase, tropisch, fruchtig, schön. Am Gaumen sehr trocken, leichte Malznoten. Gut gemacht, aber nicht ganz mein Stil. Okay.

HKdIPA (348) - HONG KONG - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from Soho Wine at home. Ruby copper pour with slightly tan head. Aroma is very malty but pierced by several hops notes - sharp, banana, pine, a bit plasticky. Taste is a bit empty and palate too thin/empty but flavors are nice. Some passion fruit hoppiness, pine, good amount of malts. Not great.

Fľaša z Metra za výpredajových 30 centov. Tmavšia farba, parádna pena, nádherná, kvetinová vôňa. Bohatá chuť, vyššia horkosť. Pre mňa pochúťka.
