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: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

Pours a deep red amber with a foamy yellowish head. Sweet and nose with a hint of flowers. Tastes a bit of copper and coffee. A quite short nice bitter aftertaste.

ronaldtheriot (1105) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 1, 2014
BrewDog 5 am Saint has a thick, soapy, cream-colored head, a very hazy, rust red/brown appearance, and some splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, pungent, tea-like malt, hop oil, and a bit of citrus. Taste is of those elements, with an overriding tannic character, bread crust, and a pleasant and noticeable, but not harsh, hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and BrewDog 5 am Saint finishes semi-dry and easy going. RJT

Beergeek23322 (2042) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2014
8/17/2010. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Caramel aromas with a floral nose. Caramel flavors, but with so much hops on the finish. This is awesome.

Liquid is clear, color of light mahogany. Very nice color. Minimal head, average carbonation. Bitterness medium to heavy. Smells like elderflower and herbs, a hint of elderflower and grapefruit in aroma.

Senap (278) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2014
Faktiskt inte så latjo tycker jag. Ganska rå i smaken, ingen finess. Delvis tillhör det väl typen, men det finns väl bättre i klassen?

Vighals (775) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2014
Gylden rødbrun i fargen med kremete beige skum. Humlelukten dominerer men kjenner også rosiner, mango, og en nøtteaktig lukt. Bitter søt smak, kjenner også den nøtteaktige smaken som jeg luktet. Kort lett bitter ettersmak.

niklasdietz (41) - DENMARK - MAR 26, 2014
Pours a dark coppery red. Small white head. Wonderful aroma of red berries, hops and malts. Taste is malty and caramel and some citrus. Mouthfeel has decent bitterness and carbonation, though especially the latter could be a little higher. But all together a wonderful beer. - with thirst, Niklas

henkjanwiegers (98) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
Pours a copper color. Very fruity aroma, like opening a bag of citrus fruits. Taste is full of hops with a little sweetness. Bitterness and lemongrass fill the mouth, leaving a bitter aftertaste. Great beer.
