a nice clean deep amber / ruby pour with 2 fingers fluffy off white head causing for some great lacing. smells mostly of bittering hops , faint smell of burnt caramel. the taste is nowhere near as hoppy as the smell, slightly bitter with a heavy sweet malt profile, tastes of grass, caramel, cereal, oh wait - the hops kick in HARD for the finish! medium body, nice creamyness, moderate carbonation.
i do believe this is the best tasting red ale i've ever had. quite complex for the style. to all those who just hate on brewdog because they're a "gimmick brewery", fuck off already. get off your fucking high horse, brew your own god damn beer, and have it taste this fucking good. i'm sick of hearing people shit talking a craft brewery, just because they're slightly bigger than most other craft brewers, and try different things with their brews. just shut the fuck up, enjoy the beer, and stop looking too into shit. this is how things get ruined, and if this is how you're going to be i'd like you to please find a new fucking hobby. thanks. sorry for the outburst, just had to say it. this is my first beer from brewdog, because i've always been put off by the high price. gave it a shot, and love it. not saying it's worth $14 for a 4-pk, but if you can find a single bottle, it's worth it to try it.

I had this beer at a hotel bar in Sweden on 6/19/14. The best by date was 6/19/14 (perfect timing, right? wrong). Dense, opaque amber appeareneceand a medium-dark head. Head didn't last long. Taste was good for an amber, but not remarkable. An enjoyable beer that was unfortunately past it's prime. I'd recommend trying 5 A.M. Saint if you can find it fresh or on tap.
