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

Vrij weinig maar mooi schuim en goede kleur. Geur is typisch IPA en smaak ook, lekker dus!

Hanoi (895) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Nose caramel, toffee, brown sugar, slight mint and some tropical notes from the NS hops. Lovely Nose. Taste is caramel leading to burnt sugar with a the hops emerging in the finish to give, peach apple with a dry finish. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. A really nice subtle beer with a lovely nose.

Tap. Chmielarnia, Warsaw. Very dark amber beer (without strong lights i would think thats stout). Aroma: Sweety floral and resin. Taste is very intensive: from medium bitter to light wild cherry. Nice, but its not unforgiving beer ;)

Appearance:caramel, nose: caramel, flowers, booze. The palate is full of bitterness, citrus flavors. There is a pretty pronounced caramel aftertaste again. Overall a very nice ale that is more a nose beer than a mouth beer. Its anyway a lot about caramel here...

bottle. clear red with a large, whipped, beige head. toffee with hints of toast and dough with some citrusy hops in aroma. a robust english inspired malt profile with nutty, peanut-like notes and a span of crystal malts but with a mean average in the 75-80 range maybe. i get an herbal hop note in the finish and some lemony, citrus as well. medium body and sweetness. been a long long time since ive had a brewdog brew.

Good beer. Amber colour, medium head. In aroma citrus, malts and hops. A little bit sweet, but this will not last as bitterness will kick in.

Clear amber color with medium and long lasting head. Nice aroma of caramel, malts and citrus hops. Taste is firstly sweet (caramel and mango) and resin aftewards appears medium bitterness which lasting on the tongue quite long. Very good and very drinkable session beer.
