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

Aroma of sweet and nutty malt. Color of clear deep copper. Fruity and sharp initial flavor with lingering hop bitterness. So many nuanced favors. Really well executed

Franckg (203) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
Arômes de malts caramélisés et de houblons. Le tout reviens en bouche suivis par des brèves effluves florales et une finale houblonnée.

Ungewöhnlich, wie alle Biere der Brewdog Company. Unglaublich intensiver Geruch nach Citrus Früchten. Ungewöhnlich kräftiger, intensiver Geschmack nach Citrus und weihnachtlichen Gewürzen. Ein tolles Bier wenn man experimentierfreudig ist!

Dzhigga (176) - Kirov, RUSSIA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Tea-like browny color with cmall head. Very complex aroma of somewhat like beriies (cranberry?), citrus and something roasted. Taste is lightly sweet with bunch of hops bitternes in the finish. Tasty and interesting beer.

Giochaurand (125) - FINLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours darkish copper with low creamy head. Aroma is like walking into a coniferous forest after rain, with hints of blueberries and scents of hops and malts. Palate is full and balanced. Taste is sweet and again hoppy, malty and foresty.

TedE (234) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2015
330ml into glass. Lemon/grapefruit nose. Hazy red ale with thin scummy head. Light easy drinking, short hop then malt finish. Every mouthful is preceded by a nose full of citric fruit. Excellent.

zach8270 (3690) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2015
(bottle - 330 ml) Copper pour with a fluffy tan head. Light malts and a nice hop aroma. Flavor is a good strong hop presence with a smooth and lightly sweet malt backbone. Smooth and easy to drink.

Kleurplaatje (73) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
Pours clear amber with a nice, thick, stable off-white head. Beautiful looks. Aroma is floral hoppy with some sugars, caramel and yellow fruits. Something woody as well. Can’t get my fingers behind it. Yet, quite a good nose. Taste is mildly bitter with a nice sweet and hoppy kick. Clear note of the fruits, the sugars, some hidden roastiness as well. Finish is predominantly bitter and dry. Yet there is some sweetnees that overarches pretty well, giving it a nice, refreshing end. Medium bodied and on the thinner side of the palate, Could have been a bit thicker and fuller, yet for the quencher that this brew tends to be, it works out really well. Good brew. Well-balanced, easy to drink quencher for the warmer days.
