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

TEJA (1524) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget Sweden. Semilasting light brown head. Clear dark amber color, that hits the right spot for an amber ale. Huge hop intensive piny aroma that will wake you up eaven at 5 a.m. Hoppy taste that then gives you a little caramell and bitterness. Dry and well fermented.

northropfrye (2450) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012
On tap at Mr. and Mrs. Bund, Shanghai. Hoppy aroma, sweet almost Belgian malt. Dark amber colour with nice white head. Very flavourful. Great beer.

netvare (37) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Soft and light with moderate bitterness, with a decent hop aroma. Color is somewhat dark brown with some hints of red. Very typical brew dog beer.

Nuffield (3747) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Moderate brown color. Huge pine aroma. Perfume and a set of flavors like something that would be uncharitable to mention. Funny finish--rough edge, vegetal. Aroma beats flavor. (tap at Barrels Ale House, Berwick)

highlandlad (1433) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2012
One of the best amber ales I’ve come across, mainly because it doesn’t taste or smell much like a dull old amber at all. Doubt it would pass muster with the style gurus in competition, but who cares? A bronze beer with a thin head. Atypical aroma of toffee apples, passionfruit, cola and lemon candies. Light body. Odd blend of what seem traditional amber ale malts and hops more suited to a pale ale. Tart and refreshing with some gooseberry in the finish. A pleasant surprise. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 16/1/12)

Bottle pour. Lots of hops in the aroma. Love the dry hops. Nice balance of citrus fruits and caramel from the malt. Thinner than I thought it would be. I like red ales much better on cask so if I get the chance to try it on cask my rating will likely go up.

Marduk (3529) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2012
330ml bottle. Dark copper color. Small off-white head, stays. Good lacing. Citric hops, some sweetness. Dry mild bitter hops in taste. Somewhat watery.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Smell like an amber should. Not too strong taste. Mild taste. Looks good. Easy to drink.

Slightly malted aroma on a reddish brown body with a thinnish head. Stronger flavor but not too roasted.
