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

aleanguz91 (184) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - JAN 23, 2018
Acquistata sul sito della Brewdog. Colore ambrato scuro. Schiuma pannosa bianco-sporco compatta è persistente. Al naso l'agrumato, litchi e ananas. In bocca subito nota maltata resinosa-caramellata. Poi arriva la componente fruttata con l'amaro agrumato e sentori floreali, leggeri frutti rossi. La luppolatura non è aggressiva e questo la rende molto beverina. Media carbonazione. Buon corpo. Finale amarognolo-resinoso. Buona!

malibrat (104) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 22, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2018 Pivo u flaši. To definitivno nije moj stil pive. Jednostavno to su općenito 'preslabe' arome i okusi za moj nos i nepce . Ali ovo pivo preporučam ak' me baš neko pita za Crvena piva. Pitko je. Ima ugodnu biljnu aromu jako blago slatkasti i hmeljni okus. P. S. Tomo kaže da je to 'sveti gral' Amber piva, a Tomo ima šta za reći o pivima ;)

Solid white head, lasting quite long. Extremely drinkable! Sweetness perfectly balanced with bitterness. Thank you BrewDog ;) I want more ;)

yerffoeg (84) - Dinant, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Une ambrée au nez assez fruité et à la mousse peu persistante. En bouche, la note fruitée est légère et fait rapidement place à l'amertume. Une bière agréable mais sans plus, à boire idéalement assez fraîche.

the_beergery (185) - - JAN 10, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 330 ml bottle. Appearance is dark amber topped with 1 finger of persistent off white froth. Aromas are a complex mix of fruity and floral hops, along with caramel malts. Taste is similar complex, but with the sweet caramel malts on top with a hint of resin, over fruit and pine hoppy notes. Slightly light to medium bodied, but with just-so carbonation. A perennial fave!

biilz (283) - SPAIN - JAN 4, 2018
Аромат весьма слабый, фруктовый. Цвет темно янтарный, имеется пена которая долго держится. Вкус в основе своей ягодный. Чувствуется черная смородина и немного фруктов. Имеется легка фруктовая постоянная горечь. Пиво слегка водянистое и весьма питкое. Интересный вариант для любителей Ипы.

ceritani (2) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 31, 2017 does not count
Very malty/bready, and fruity. Aroma: Caramel, roasted malts, liquorice, raisins, herbal touch. Taste: Caramel, toasted bread, fruity, rather sweet. After all, a pretty complex beer

4.1
defabant (60) - ITALY - DEC 30, 2017
Colore rosso scuro con schiuma quasi inesistente. Aroma intenso da acquolina in bocca, di agrumi e luppoli. Il sapore è davvero molto particolare con sentori erbacei che ricordano le foglie di tè, agrumi e luppoli. L'amaro resta in secondo piano mentre durante la bevuta il retrogusto persistente lascia la bocca con un sapore molto gradevole. Molto beverina, consigliata.
