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

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.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottled sample. Dark amber in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas arr of sticky pale and caramel malts, along with a hit of orange liqueur. Malt forward in the mouth as well and quite sweet. Vague citrus and astringent grain on the back end. Heavy bodied and chewy, but with a bit of hop bitterness in there too.

Bottle from house of trembling madness in York. Great hoppy aroma, like the good tastey IPAs but darker. Another top brew dog

Tap at Brewdog, Leeds. Clear, reddy amber. Off white, bubbly head. Light toffee. Light grapefruit. Taste is pink grapefruit bitter. A little sweetness, too. Light, oily palate. Bitter, and fruity dry finish.

Medium body, vastly bubbly, quick alcohol and flavor feel. 2 words. Malt and mud. Flavor is muddy, caramel, thick, brown, nuts, oak, hop, chocolate and obviously malt. Lots of it. Very unique! First BD.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2014
Nice dark, ruby-red colored beer with a slightly brown layer of foam. A strong, fruity, sour aroma of apples, and apricot or peach. The sour bit surely moves on into the taste, but the bitterness has the upper hand. Sadly, not much of an aftertaste. Mooi donker, robijnrood kleurig bier met een lichtbruine kraag. Sterk, fruitig aroma van appels en abrikoos of perzik. Ook in de smaak zit het zurige verwerkt, maar op de voorgrond licht de bitterheid. Helaas niet veel nasmaak.
