Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly 5 A.M. Saint + Five AM

Start the car. The lights are about to turn amber. Buy the ticket, take the ride. Past the alley where thieves and pimps sell corporate brews and good men soak it up like vermin, blissful in their ignorance. Past the jackhammers who want their three and a half percent. Keep going. Towards that golden orb, the size of Zeus’s ass, that hovers over this crazy town. Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink amber, and drive like a bastard towards that saintly light.

25 IBU

Pours a ruby brown with smallish head that leaves spotty lace. Nose is malty and marmalade, kind of earthy and herbal as well, but doesn't really pop from the hops like you'd hope. Taste is well rounded between malt and hops, although is a bit soft on the IBUs. Seems to alternate between malty and a pale ale between sips. Overall, a very likable and drinkable beer, but doesn't excite me.

Beautiful copper transparent color. Slight floral smell. Tastes like your basic pale ale. Expected a bit more flavor and complexity. I guess a IBU of around 50 to 60. A nice easy drinking brew with a meal or refreshing on a warm day.

Taste just like punk to me. Nothing new about this. Ok it is nice but so is punk. I'm starting to think that Brewdog are just a big bag of tartan flatus.

Bottle. Smell fruity. Taste of some citrus and very little bitter. Medium to full bodied. Mix feeling about this however this is my first red ale, so maybe I don’t know wat to expect from it. Somehow refreshing.. Hmm maybe 3.5?

A good beer a great mix of an Irish red and an American amber. From the first you've got the sweet toffee and light roastiness. From the second you have the hoppiness mostly on the pine and on the citrus (white grapefruit). Very drinkable

Great nose of fruits and hops. Notes of citrus with a nice structure of the foam. Bitterness in the finish not too strong for an ale.

330ml bottle into 350ml beer glass.

Poured a nice orange/red brown with an ok head which lasted a while and left a film. Lots of lacing.

Nose is very malty with a biscuity/roasted aroma coming through the hops - very nice.

Palate is also very malty with a perfectly balanced bitterness. Mouth feel is medium and perfect for the style.

Another great beer from Brew Dog - say what you like about these guys but this is another winner from them. The second one I tried today and it's great.
