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 were 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 whos to know whats 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 peoples 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, youll 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

Pours a deep mahogany red with a beige head. Nose is caramel, treacle, toffee, plums and orange peel hops. Silky smooth mouth feel. Flavour is sweet caramel, dried red fruits, pecan, walnut and some orange peel. Nicely bitter for a red ale. Absolutely fantastic stuff !

PlutonowyMan (693) - POLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Kolor czerwono miedziany, brunatny, z niezbyt wysoką i mało trwałą pianą. Aromat to głwnie owoce tak cytrusowe jak i tropikalne i żywica z przewagą tej drugiej. Smak podobnie jak zapach owoce tropikalne i cytrusowe i do tego intensywna żywica. Po ogrzaniu się piwa w tle pojawiają się delikatne akcenty karmelu. Dalej jednak wiodąca jest żywica i to ona jest nośnikiem goryczki w tym piwie. Wysycenie średnie.

Great beer, amber color, two finger white head with great lacing in glass, citrus smell and taste, caramel taste, nice carbonation, and great balance between hops and malts.

Bouteille 33 cl. Belle robe ambre/rubis, mousse blanche. Nez fruit complexe o je trouve : prune, pche, abricot, orange, raisin ... mais aussi le caramel. Bouche douce, frache, houblonne, toujours sur le fruit et le caramel et finale amre. Superbe !
