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

ElManana (514) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Pours gorgeous red with no head. Nose is oranges, hops, red fruit, strawberries. Taste is bitter at first, goes into a smooth sweetness that drinks away extremely well. Fantastic red ale.

Kinda similar to the punk IPA (there’s a definite house style to brewdog I’m starting to realise) but with a maltier base and better rounded. This one should really be their "flagship" instead of the punk.

TAP. Dark ruby colour with off white head. Sweet sherbet on the nose. Big sweet orange flavour through, with slight malty bitterness to finish. Went down very easy! Sourced Fire Station Busselton

Belle robe cuivrée. Les sensations sont assez anarchiques. On a les saveurs du malt, du houblon et de la levure qui nous parviennent en même temps. Arrière goût assez étrange de chocolat. Longue en bouche. Excellente bière.

Bottle at home. I found berry bouncing off marmalade clashing with caramel cosying up to chocolate buzzing off spice sizzling with toast laced with lychee and colliding with biscuit. As malty as it is hoppy. As anarchic as it is structured. Bitterness and sweetness, all neatly messed up in a triumph of pure chaos. Yes i copied the description from the bottle. Hehehe :D

RafeAU (197) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2014
bottle from plonk. Pours amber, creamy head, attractive appearance. Big hoppy aroma, reminiscent of an imperial IPA for some reason (the extensive dry hopping?). Big hoppy flavours with mild bitterness. body is a little thin. at 5% ABV it?s rare for a beer of this relatively mild strength to carry such flavour. good stuff.

MarkoNm (760) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours a clear ruby color, topped with an average white head. Mild fruity aroma, some caramel in there too. Malty sweet taste, notes of caramel, some medium bitterness. Gentle but nice.

1dl Erzbierschof Tab. Sehr schöne Kupferrot, guter Schaum. Cassisbeeren und etwas grapiges in der Luft. Wenig bitter, schön malzig, nicht zu süss. Rutsch gut runter. Sehr feines Amber Ale.

Dark ruby colour with short head that almost disapears. herbs, citrus, some spices. Nice hoppy ale.
