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

willisread (917) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle from Masuyo. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Nose is pine resin, caramel and some grapefruit. Taste is more of the same. A woody bitterness on the palate with some bready malt sweetness to balance it out. Bitter finish with some grapefruit showing.

.33ml bottle, bottled at Five AM Red Ale. Poured into a shaker pint. Light red, clear, fizzy white head. Medium body and fairly creamy. Nose is sharp citrus and malt. Taste is similar with more fruitiness and a little breadiness.

Nice ruby coloured ale. Tastes sweet on the tongue but bitter in the throat. Can’t make out the smell much but I like it a lot.
