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

Bottle @ home. En fin overraskelse! Blev denne efter at smidt den inden ud. Fin frugtig duft af humlen. Frugtig humlet smag uden det bitre slut. Fin ravrød farve med lidt skum. God øl!

Cerveja punk. Aroma frutado excelente. Amargor marcante do lúpulo, sabor gostoso, desce fácil, pois tem um graduação alcoólica boa. Recomendo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Torrefacto (1675) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 19, 2013
Color caramelo filtrada con espuma color marfil de buena formación. Aromas lupulados suaves con ligeros toques de azúcar moreno. En boca es ligera con un dulzor inicial muy leve que acaba con un amargor resinoso y seco muy equilibrado. Muy agradable y fácil de beber

IPAgutten79 (947) - Skui, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2013 Bottle 330ml @ home from Polet. Pours red with big fluffy head. Aroma is hops and caramel. Herbs. Fruit as well. Tropical, peach? Not too fond of the aroma actually. Maybe it?s the peach I don?t dig. The herbs? ResinDon?t know. Fortunately the taste is much better. Hops, caramel, fruits and a fine bitterness to round things up. Not deeply impressed, but ok.

rhyshewer (71) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2013
Aroma: Herbal, caramel, hints of spice and liquorice. Appearance: Amber, tinged with red. Hazy with minimal head. Taste: Slightly sour, liquorice start moving to a distinct biscuity, dank finish Palate: Light and slightly oily, strong carbonation and a sharp bitter finish. Overall: Good, solid amber ale. Remarkably English characteristics given the hop list.
