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

One of these at the end of a long night certainly is divine. Red brown pour. Hoppy taste leads into a nice balance with malts, dry bitter finish.

swegepe (20) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
Underbar röd färg med lite skum. Fyllig fruktig doft. Fina tropiska aromer med understöd av Echinea och lakritsrot och en lätt frisk beska.

Härlig röd värg, doften var ingen hit i min mening. Mycket humlig men ej besk. Fint skum, inget större fel på ölet.

Tried this at BrewDog Nottingham. A really nice amber ale. Good balance of hop and malt. Love it.

From a bottle at home. Pour is interesting dark brown and cloudy. Taste is full of malts but not quite over the top. Yes, quite dull and more than average slight bitterness. It seems to have this slight tartness to it but it never really becomes apparent. A little medicinal for a lager lover. For an amber ale, IMHO, could use a few more manners. Not impressed. I have yet to find a brewdog that I can appreciate, my taste buds are not refined enough to enjoy these beers. Spent nearly $4 for this bottle, way too much.

Clear reddish brown color, medium sized head. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma is full of hops, citrus and herbs with sweet malty caramel underneath. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet. Very good.
