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

Interesting beer, comes across like an IPA up front but without the bitter finish. Has almost no aftertaste. Interesting, but not amazing. Looks great, nice body and decent woodsy pine aroma.

meireteixeira (67) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 26, 2015
Cor rubi, brilhante. Espuma boa, persistente e encantadora pelas rendas formadas no copo. Aroma de grãos e caramelo. No paladar forte herbal do lúpulo e retrogosto marcante e amargo. Única e espetacular!!!

Deep red with white head... malty, fruity, dry... Nice red ale, but maybe lacking a bit of body. Decent enough though.

Excelente red Ale. Tem um aroma excelente por parecer ter mais lupulo. É como se fosse uma Ipa red ale. Vale muito tomar novamente ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fukito (886) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 19, 2015
Pour a clear shinny copper/ red color with an offwhite head. Aroma is caramels and some citrus. Same clean caramel and citrus on the flavor. Medium to light palate, ok and balanced but rather unidimensional.

Fashawn (341) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Onesta ma niente fi speciale. Ricorda la hardcore ipa,con meno impatto. Caramello e spremuta di luppoli in bocca, liscia e scorrevole con carbonatazione meDia. Buona birra ma niente di straordinario

Pours a cloudy copper color without much head, minimal carbination. Aroma of malt and fruit, with hints strawberry. Taste of malt, fruit, hops and strawberry. Surprisingly dry feel with a clean finish.

Poured from a bottle. Murky copper color, large amounts of sediment, small white head. Tangy fruit and strawberry aroma. Medium body with a strong malt flavor with nice hops accents and medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
