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

This beer is phenomenal! I drank some while in a bar in London, "the Rake" it was. Well, I was truly amazed, the color, smell and flavor, made me want to stick with this all night, but with the selection in the bar had me trying all kinds. So long story short, I loved this one, everything these guys touch turns to magic in my mouth, yeah I said it, and Im not ashamed, I would cup the bottle, push it to the back of my throat and swallow the suds! No lie, good stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Veramente ottima! Un’altra birra della BrewDog fantastica!!! Anche piu’ buona della punk ipa, forse perche’ l’ho ritrovata anche meno amara. Si presenta subito bene con uno splendido colore ambrato una schiuma color crema e non persistente, l’odoro e’ simile alla punk ma meno intenso e piu’ gradevole il sapore e’ meraviglioso floreale, erbaceo e anche un po’ futtato, il finale e’ leggermente amaro! La migliore della BrewDog!!!

Bottle 0,33L. Hazy dark amber colour, with big beige head. Outstanding aroma is combination of hoppy flowers, pine, herbs, grass and grapes. Heavy bitter taste with medium to full body and lively carbonation. Could be easily treated as IPA.

Monchito_IPA (206) - SPAIN - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 Precioso ámbar oscuro. Espuma perfecta, persistente. Con mucho cuerpo a pesar de no tener muchos grados. Intenso aroma frutal y floral con notas cítricas pero sin ser una explosión de lúpulo. Sabor intenso, amargo, muy equilibrado con el dulce de la malta. Por decir algo negativa quizás demasiado carbonatada.

For an Amber ale, this is a winner. Usually lackluster in taste, this Amber ale exceeds them all. Almost like a pale ale, but not as much of a kick. Love it.

0.5l on tap. Aroma as complicated as some relations these days. Roasted black bread, down to the burn. Hops come along and beer aftertaste leaves with that bitter. Interestingue

Yet another beautiful beer from Brewdog. Like homebrew beer. Hazy redish color. Nice aroma, very fruity, like taste. I liked it.

Excelente! Um das melhores do mundo. Corpo médio, baixo amargor que não persiste. No retrogosto o sabor se acentua dando a certeza que você está tomando uma excelente cerveja. Dentre as minhas Top 10.
