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

Rodders' rating

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, - AUG 8, 2010
One of BrewDog’s lower alcohol offerings. Pours dark brown with a thick bubbley head. Smell is citrus pine hops. Spruce. Strong and American in the nose. Taste is similar sharp pine, grassy hops but with a thick, aley, malty backing. Meaty, bitter with a tasty finish. Good Carbonation. very drinkable.

sinte (564) - Udine, ITALY - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle 0.33L. Slightly hazy, dark amber-to-copper body with an average, frothy tan head, mostly diminishing with some nice lacing, though. Moderate malty (caramel) and hoppy (grapefruit) aroma with notes of fruits (peach). Moderate sweet and bitter flavour with a long-lasting dry finish. Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

kaserov (675) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 19, 2017
Color ámbar, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa. Aroma terroso, a malta caramelizada y tostada, cereal, lúpulo maduro, hierba húmeda. En boca increíble balance entre maltas y lúpulos, muy terrosa, mucho grano, a la vez mucho lúpulo, ligero contrapunto ácido casi al final del trago aportado por una dosis mínima de cítricos. Final de amargor muy ligero. Quedan grano y caramelo en boca. Balanceada, sabrosa y completa. Hacer una cerveza con tal número de maltas y lúpulos y solo 5% debe de ser una buena odisea.

Panzuriel (2199) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Appearance: deep reddish amber. Moderately hazy. Thin ring of tiny white bubbles Nose: medium caramel malt with hop notes of citrus. Taste: medium caramel sweetness with citrus hop bitters and touches of stone fruit Body: medium and smooth Parting thoughts: a decent red ale. Good caramel with a little fruit. Nice hops to provide contrast and bitter finish.

ludos68 (54) - - JUN 3, 2017
Birra ambrata con schiuma biege cremosa ed abbastanza persistente. Aromi di caramello frutta (ciliegia, agrumi) cioccolato ed una nota resinosa dei luppoli. Sapore fotocopia dell’aroma con un finale amaro non molto aggressivo ma che pulisce bene la bocca.
