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

Hallstein (146) - Skogn, NORWAY - APR 1, 2012
Pours a dark red, with a tiny head (Most probably because of the glass). Aroma of fresh hops, some caramel from the malt, citrus, floral tones. Nice smooth palate, goes down easy. Flavour of green, spicy, floral hops, with a nice smooth bitterness and maltyness to it. Medium bodied. Awesome amber-ale!

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium amber with a well-retained, sticky off-white head.. looked good in the glass. The aroma picked up soft bread and fruity malts with more fruit and grassy hops around.. soft and entirely pleasant. The flavor found similar stuff.. bread and biscuity malts at the core, with light grass, pine, and grapefruit bitterness around.. light earth and citrus bitterness over biscuity malt on the crisp finish. Light-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. very dry.. not as bitter as expected, but it worked.

Brainstorming to find jokes about "what smells good but doesn't taste good" is more interesting than this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 28, 2012
Aroma: Quite unique. Very aromatic, like olives and citrus fruit and cream and sour cherries and peach and honey, among other stuff. Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium body. Some carbonation. Taste: Gently but firmly sweet, like strawberry candy and honey. A tiny bit of sourness on the tongue, too. Finish: Ends tart, spicy and dry. Overall: Superb, stuff. Very drinkable. Very appetizing.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2012
(12oz bottle from Provisions. Batch 329). Pours a clear amber-red color with pillowing eggshell head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma has some resin, pine, hard candy, pumpernickel. Taste is sweet malts with some sharp bitterness that starts up front and moves to the back of the throat. Lighter bodied with a somewhat dry, but balanced finish. Nothing earth shattering in these days of extreme beers, but something that I’d consider sessioning if it were available at a reasonable price.

Pure class from Brewdog. Hoppy, malty, long on the tongue, after bitterness that lingers. Top.
