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

SinH4 (346) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 Clear amber color with big head. Aroma is fruity-hoppy, really, a hint of berries, and pines as well as caramel malt. Taste is typical red ale, earthy and caramely, but the hops are also very present and with a pleasant bitter finish. Medium carbonation, rather light body. A good hoppy red ale!

venom666 (431) - Elche, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2014
Hazy brown/reddish color with fluffy beige head. Aroma is fruity (red fruits such as strawberry and cherries are the most predominant) and resiny, with caramel. Taste is earthy, with also red fruits, caramel and a strong malty presence. Aftertaste is dry and bitter.

Kita (1230) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear ruby color with medium creamy tan-like head and good lacing. Aroma of berries, orange peel, spices, pine, caramel malt and burnt sugar. Taste starts moderate sweet and rich malt, follows by fruity acidity with some citric notes and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Pleasant and enjoyable session beer...

ElManana (543) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Pours gorgeous red with no head. Nose is oranges, hops, red fruit, strawberries. Taste is bitter at first, goes into a smooth sweetness that drinks away extremely well. Fantastic red ale.

Kinda similar to the punk IPA (there’s a definite house style to brewdog I’m starting to realise) but with a maltier base and better rounded. This one should really be their "flagship" instead of the punk.

TAP. Dark ruby colour with off white head. Sweet sherbet on the nose. Big sweet orange flavour through, with slight malty bitterness to finish. Went down very easy! Sourced Fire Station Busselton

Belle robe cuivrée. Les sensations sont assez anarchiques. On a les saveurs du malt, du houblon et de la levure qui nous parviennent en même temps. Arrière goût assez étrange de chocolat. Longue en bouche. Excellente bière.

Bottle at home. I found berry bouncing off marmalade clashing with caramel cosying up to chocolate buzzing off spice sizzling with toast laced with lychee and colliding with biscuit. As malty as it is hoppy. As anarchic as it is structured. Bitterness and sweetness, all neatly messed up in a triumph of pure chaos. Yes i copied the description from the bottle. Hehehe :D
