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

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - JUL 14, 2011
{thoughts} Cloying hops rain on an otherwise fine parade of juicy malts.

{elements} Clear, amber hue; short, white froth. Caramel and oranges / grapefruit plus mint / rosemary. Moderately sweet, low to moderate acidity, moderate bitterness; caramel and toasty malts with a clingy bitterness and resinous aftertaste. Moderate carbonation, medium body, watery texture. 25 cl draft @ OHaras.

cerveza ambar lupulona, con predominio del lupulo, final dulzon y para mi gusto ligeramente insipida. Algo mas me esperaba de ella

hauxe (627) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 20, 2017
Pours (gushed!) murky, dirty red from the bottle with frothy off-white crown. Aroma is caramel, mashed up red currant. Taste is sweet with a caramel base, and a tart red berry undertone. Noticeable cherry. Finishes dry, tart, very lightly bitter. Medium bodied. Interesting, but the flavors dont quite work for me.

Tinaccio (179) - Milano, ITALY - APR 13, 2017
330 ml bottle from Tesco, London, UK. Colour is amber with a froathy, creamy white-off head. Aroma is malts, citrus, orange, orange zest, hops. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium with soft carbonation. Very easy drinkable.

limbonicartbeer (92) - - APR 12, 2017
Cerveza color café rojizo corona de espuma de baja carbonatacion burbujas de baja retención. Aroma a lúpulo sutil, con toque cítrico y un sutil dulce al final. Notas al paladar muy similares al aroma, perduran poco en el retrogusto, no de mala manera tomando en cuenta el estilo de la cerveza. Consistencia suave, ligera al paladar. Excelente cerveza muy completa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark Amber ale. Off white creamy head. Bitter, lingering malt & hoppy finish. Decent session ale.

Stroke (8) - ITALY - APR 1, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: APR 2, 2017 Bottiglia comprata direttamente da Brewdog online. Bella birra, rosso ramato con una schiuma persistente ma un po? grossolana. Profumo intenso e ricco che si ritrova in bocca. Amaro mai invadente.

MaltCaptain61 (10) - Pune, INDIA - MAR 28, 2017
herbs, very hoppy aroma, dark brown red in colour, light tan head, not very lasting, light hop bitterness (unlike what I expected), caramel notes and aftertaste, the light bitterness almost vanished instantly the beer is gulped down, no prominent sweetness, medium body, low carbonation on tongue, the finish is abrupt, but not in a bad way

Berlin, BrewdogPub, kran. Ar: bardzo dobrze, bardzo intensywny, swiezy, sporo lesnej zywicy, troche dobrych owocow tropikalnych, nieco dobrych nut kwiatowych, nieco slodowosci, ciekawie, soczyscie, bogato, wszystko czego oczekiwac po stylu. Wyg: ladny lekko czerwonawy, piana szybko redukuje do cieniutkiego ultradrobnoziaristego ringu. Sm: bardzo solidnie, wysycenie srednio-wysokie, soczyscie, bogato, troche slodko, ale dobra kontra goryczki z amerykanskich chmieli, wiele dobrych wspolgrajacych nut, swietny, bardzo pijalny. Pos: owocowosc, lekka chmielowosc, fajnie. Ov: bardzo dobre, soczyste, aromatyczne, lekkie, bardzo pijalne.
