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

RuneStumo (2474) - Haugesund, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2015
23.10.2015. On tap at Biskopen i Bergen. Dark amber colour with no head. Sour aromas of wood and pine. Carboard. Dark malts. Notes of sitrus. Quite sour. pretty rich on hops for an amber ale I think. Good flavours.

BMMillsy (1787) - Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle at a cafe in Florence. Overall, a sweet red mess of a beer that I assume was because it had been sitting a while. Not bad at all, plenty drinkable, but just not very memorable. Better than the average beer.

swiseman (455) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
pours red with tan head. strong hop aromas which is the first sign that this ain’t your grandma’s typical red ale. body is medium to heavy. strong grassy hops on the tongue that stays in the finish. Could this actually be a red bitter? In any case, a solid offering.

UXO (1003) - CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
Appearance: clear medium amber with one finger of rocky light tan head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: woody, citrus, caramel, tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Quite a hoppy red ale, with lots of IPA character. Tends a little to the heavy-handed, with a fairly emphatic malt presence not unlike some DIPA’s. Five different malts and six different hops make for a bit of a kitchen sink, but it’s reasonably smooth and easy drinking despite that. (15/20)
