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

NateSeats (15) - Barlborough (nr Sheffield), Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
Great balanced between the hops, that little residual sweetness and malty goodness. A great Hoppy Amber to match any Ive tried from over the pond!

Pours a clear amber with a frothy light head o the top. Honey, sweet fruit and some citrus in the aroma. Tastes of grain, citrus and a piney bitter finish.

LicoriceKing (48) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2013
Deep amber color. Aroma: Caramel, pine, grass, bread, cereal, floral and citrus. Taste: Very piney, grapefruit, citrus, caramel, coffee and bread. Light mouthfeel. This is so great, definitely my favourite among BrewDogs sessionable core range, a lot of interesting notes you wouldnt expect from the style. Nice malt flavours and hop flavours.

330ml bottle. pours a copper/dark red colour. aroma is of lots of fruit, yeast and alcohol. tastes very distinct....of brewdog beer. not sure how to describe but maybe you know what i mean. lots of them taste similar. very fruity with dry finish.

A mi gust una de las mejores florales qu he probado. Sabe cuadrar bien el tipo de lpulo sin saturar con el sabor a flores. Muy equilibrada, para repetir, de las pocas de su estilo qu repetira.
