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

Nice dark red color with white head. Aromat hopy and malty. Taste of citrus from hops, litle carmel and nice bitter finish.

TheHopster (937) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2015
(Bottle). This is my first from this iconic brewer. Nice murky deep amber complexion but little to no head retention. A musky and citrus aroma. The flavor is fairly complex with malt backbone with bright hop tone in finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shain (132) - ISRAEL - AUG 13, 2015
Draught sample at Beers 2015. Fruity aroma, fruity hops. Malt. Slightly bitter hops. Gentle sweetness. Strong hop flavors. Slightly dried and hoppier then most ambers, having more of an APA feel. OK, but not really for my taste.

Birra ambrata luppolata del birrificio brewdog, presenta lievi sapori di frutta in bocca, il retrogusto è amaro

Ambrée aux notes caramels principalement. Comme chez Brewdog on aime le houblon, le nez est houblonné et l’amertume bien présente dans cette bière.

Dredd (733) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2015
Ruby red body with thin tan head. Faint caramel and citrus nose, flavour profile is caramel, brown sugar and hints of vanilla follows on to a long finish that is equal parts sugary and bitter. Nice, but not my Brewdog fave.

Achel (205) - GREECE - AUG 3, 2015
Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Lovely peachy hop aroma. Medium body, dry fruit and caramel but completely dominated by the good American hops. Dry but not overly bitter finish.

Clear red Amber body with a tan head. Aroma of citrus notes and hops. Taste of citrus and pine, slight bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Farbe braun-goldig. Geruch nach Citrus und Ananas. Angenehm restsüß, rund bitter.

NordicV (1390) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2015
Rödbrun öl med ett beige skum. Doft av tropiska frukter, bär och karamell. Smaken är något maltigare med en viss jordighet. Men även här spelar fruktigheten huvudrollen.
