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

Bottle. Dark amber with small head. Hoppy aroma with some malts. Same with the flavour as well as some grapefruit to balance it out. More red/amber ales should taste like this!

Ihan hyvältä maistuu tuo humalaisen Jumalan käsi. Ei liikaa. Ehkä siihen tottuu. Sports academy Tuomon kanssa.

For an Amber ale, this is a winner. Usually lackluster in taste, this Amber ale exceeds them all. Almost like a pale ale, but not as much of a kick. Love it.
