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

Bottle, 33 cl, Restaurang Magnussons, Uppsala. Overall pleasant, a bit too hoppy, though, for my taste.

One of the first craft beers I ever tasted. Still pretty good now. Smell is floral, grapefruit, caramel and pine resin. Taste is less complex: red berries and more caramel sweetness. Fairly low bitterness and pleasant grapefruit aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a nice hazy red colour with an off white head. Aroma: Citrus, hoppy and malty. Excellent session beer I would continue to drink.

AgentAle (1165) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Aroma is citrus, clove and lemon grass. Slight roasty malts and caramel. Taste is sweet malts, light honey and clove. The hop profile is earthy and fragrant. ..fresh. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

TorbenJensen (1225) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2015
Copper red amber ale. Appearance in a suitable glass, where strong serious and persistent foam arises is pleasing to the eye. The flavor is a little caramel and hops. The flavor has a wonderful citrus with good hops notes against a little caramel malt in the background.

colui72 (340) - HONG KONG - JUL 15, 2015
Reddish amber, clear, beautiful. Thin head, beige/golden. Aroma is hoppy, like the usual nose of an IPA. Taste has got a blend of malty sweetness and hops. Lots of hop. Well balanced. A very good ale. BrewDog seldom disappoints!

takeo (12) - Sevilla, SPAIN - JUL 10, 2015
Color rubí profundo. Espuma de media persistencia y de color blanco roto. En nariz capto notas cítricas, pomelo, melón, uva, pino. En boca tenemos notas de caramelo que se funden con un buen toque del lúpulo. Amargor moderadamente fuerte y persistente.
