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

Towey1989 (313) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Manchester. A clear deep ruby copper colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pineapple, red berries, apple, pine and caramel. Taste of red berries, apple, grapefruit, sweet caramel, earthy bitterness and a little coffee. Light bodied, moderate carbonation and a watery texture. A pleasant hop bitterness in the finish. A flavourful, hoppy, easy drinking beer. Little thin but still decent.

BenOver (148) - SLOVENIA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours redish, slightly brown, with medium head. Smell is very aromatic, taste is quite good, but lacks the finish, you would expect from the smell. A very nice beer.

brandon31g (4) - HONG KONG - MAR 20, 2015 does not count
This ale is an amber ale brewed with 5 malts at 5% ABV. Pours a copper colour with light head but average carbonation. Aroma is notable citrus with a bit grassiness. Its taste is still citrus and finishes with bitterness likes orange peel and roastiness. Even though the beer was brewed with 5 types of malts, I think it’s still quite hoppy.
