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

Om jag fr vlja en sak att lukta p innan jag dr s hade jag valt en flaska 5 a.m. Saint frn Brewdog. Den r helt enkelt ljuvlig. Smaken r ngot frsiktigt men fruktig och frisk med en passande beska. Kroppen r ocks den lite frsiktig men nd vl anpassad till len. Slutsats: len r bra och god men man hade nstan lika grna bara kunnit sitta och dofta p den.

33 cl. bottle. Dark copper coloured beer with a minimal and very quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is classic ale but really nice: caramel, toffee, tropical fruits along with citrus notes. Taste is bittersweet -- moderate sweetness and moderate bitternes, well-balanced but not very impressive. It feels like somethings missing for having a really good taste. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Somewhat bitter and dry finish, not accentuated though. It is a good beer but didnt meet my expectation.

Wallenrod (13) - - FEB 18, 2017
Wygląd: Piękna czerwień, ciemny rubin, chociaż piana mogłaby być trwalsza. Dość szybko opada, nie pozostawiając nawet cienkiej warstwy. Aromat: Cytrusy z amerykańskich chmieli, ale też kwiatowość i owocowość, nuty malinowe. Smak: Ponownie cytrusy, maliny, być może truskawki. Piwo gładkie, praktycznie bez goryczki (delikatna na finiszu), bardzo pijalne. Oglnie: Jest dobrze łamane na bardzo dobrze. Pije się z przyjemnością, chociaż nie wybija się na wybitny poziom.

Achete au Hyper U de Sierentz. Bire brune au nez rsineux, fruite et houblonne. En bouche elle est houblonne et resineuse. Douceur et caractre font de cette bire une belle dcouverte.

roflorence (38) - South Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2017
Dark amber colour poured from the bottle with a centimetre of thick head. Strong caramel/toffee malt aromas. Quite a complex hop character with powerful citrus/grapefruit and a slight sour aftertaste.

Dark amber with medium off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with citrus notes. Good bitterness with citrus sourness, bitterness lasts in the aftertaste. Bit watery and dusty.

Bulk_Carrier (4532) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a rustic dark red color with a fingers worth of white foamy head that dies off at a decent pace. Moderate lacing. The aroma had some caramel/toffee malts up front with a touch of grassy to resinous bitter hoppiness. Touch of earthiness. Subtle chocolate. The flavor yields to the sweetness initially through the malts. Resin bitterness touches gracefully in the background. Slightly crisp malty to bitter hoppy aftertaste. Quick malty finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate crisp carbonation feels its way out over my tongue. ABV feels appropriate. Overall, nicely done amber ale that I would have again.

Bottle at home. A flavourful beer which would accompany red meat perfectly. A wine like character.
