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

DavidSvinth (427) - DENMARK - FEB 11, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 Fra flaske. Dufter af frisk humle og malt. Smagen er lidt sød, med tydelig maltkarakter. Humlen kan også tydeligt smages. Lækker øl.

nephirem (684) - CROATIA - JAN 30, 2018
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy deep ruby pour, minimal off-white layer on top. No lacing. Nose is hoppy and herbal, some candy notes, a bit caramel. Thin to medium body, aggressive carbonation. Light texture, very prickly. Somewhat thin and watery. Bittersweet taste. Aroma of malts and grains, some caramel. Grassy hops. Slight roastiness in the background. Candy. Herbal. Medium finish, moderately bitter. Dry. Overall, good, but nothing really outstanding. Thin body lets it down a bit.

Craftakt (292) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2018
Nicht so interessant wie sonst bei Brewdog üblich. Aroma süßlich fruchtig mit Anklängen von Hopfen. Geschmack ausgewogen zwischen aufkommenden Malznoten und Bitterkeit. Dabei bleibt trotz caramellig dunkler Frucht und leicht fruchtig Bitteren Akzenten aufgrund eines wässrig anfangenden mittellangen, süßlichen Abgangs. Ein wenig als hätte jemand einen klassischen Belgier versehentlich in ein ordentliches Brewdog gekippt. Die Vermählung gelingt nicht voll.

aleanguz91 (218) - 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 (218) - 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 ;)
