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

Botella en 99Cervezas. Vierte en un bonito color ámbar-caramelo rojizo, algo velado, aunque bastante transparente y brillante para ser una Ale. Formación de espuma color vainilla de burbuja pequeña y persistencia moderada. Buena carbonatación y adherencia. De intensidad media-alta en nariz, da de inmediato notas de lúpulo y naranja (como de mermelada de naranja amarga). También hay notas de miel muy agradables y de fruta escarchada. El lúpulo va ganando espacio conforme evoluciona en nariz, apareciendo unas notas aquesadas y resinosas muy suaves. Gran complejidad y gran placer para nuestra nariz. De entre los sabores básicos destaca el amargo y el ácido, en forma de punto cítrico. También hay algo de salado. Curiosamente, todo el dulce que se percibía en nariz parece estar ausente en el primer trago, pero está ahí y pronto se va abriendo paso conforme la cerveza evoluciona en boca. Entonces vuelve a salir la fruta escarchada y el caramelo, dando un final muy equilibrado de dulce, amargo y cítrico muy agradable. En ese sentido, resulta sorprendente en boca. De cuerpo medio-ligero en boca y carácter claramente refrescante. No llena totalmente la boca aunque deja una sensación bastante agradable y nada pesada. Persistencia media. Una cerveza sorprendentemente compleja tanto en nariz como en boca. La bebo y me recuerda al dulce de calabaza que en la zona de Alcoy llaman "arrop i tallaetes". Su complejidad le permite ser una cerveza todoterreno, tanto de trago largo como parte de un aperitivo, trago medio con una buena carne o una paellita, e incluso de trago corto que permita disfrutar poco a poco de su complejidad (a pesar de no ser de gran cuerpo). Absolutamente recomendable.

20170507 HOME; 33 cl bottle; BB 30/07/17. A clear amber coloured beer with a brown good & fine foam layer. Aroma is somewhat sweet & caramel with some citrus-like hops. Taste is what sweet, malty and caramel. This stays. And a citrus-like hop bitter is coming above this. Reasonable bitter which becomes light dry. Also some tropical fruit. Body is medium-full. Overall a somewhat sweet beer with a nice hop bitter aftertaste with some fruit.

GhostS (370) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 4, 2017
Aroma - quite a bit heavy, with dried and wet leaves, lot of caramelized malt, caramel, caramelized fruit’s jam, dark honey, some earthy hop notes. Taste - hops with earthy notes, wed and dried leaves, partly rotten herbs, goes then with caramelized malt, caramel, some fruit’s jam and dark honey, a bit of bitterness. Not bad, but quite a bit heavy.

2016 catch up - Bottles at home from borthday present case - A nice beer that was pleasant to sip. Very smooth with both malt and hops coming through nicely. The mouthfeel was the key to this and I have to say the malt was very well done for Brewdog who tend to be hop obsessed.

Bottle from Tesco, Imperial Wharf. Good amber. A little too watery for my taste.

Une très bonne rousse qui en a le gout, assez parfumée, plutôt légère et bonne amertume.

hauxe (774) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 20, 2017
Pours (gushed!) murky, dirty red from the bottle with frothy off-white crown. Aroma is caramel, mashed up red currant. Taste is sweet with a caramel base, and a tart red berry undertone. Noticeable cherry. Finishes dry, tart, very lightly bitter. Medium bodied. Interesting, but the flavors don’t quite work for me.
