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: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2011
From Key keg. Amber golden color with an average creamy off-white head. Caramel malty aroma with lots of aromatic fruity hops. Flavour is balanced between caramel and lots of citric fruit hops leadign to a dry bitter finish. Lovely.

Saint pours a stunning mulberry colour, summer in a glass. You can instantly pick up a bouquet of raspberries, oranges. Dry and slightly tart in the mouth with a creamy white head which retains well. Medium carbonation which compliments the flavour mixture and texture very well. Quite hoppy with burning caramel and nuts coming through as it warms up slightly. I like this a lot.

A finger of pillowy head on this terrific amber ale. Smells of caramel and roasted malls, with citrus and pine. This is a great example of this style!

Forse la migliore di casa Brewdog. Ottimo equilibrio tra gusto e corpo. Per me, la Brewdog ha fatto centro con questa birra.

aphelion1979 (172) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2011
pours red/amber with a pillowy off white head. lovely aroma of fruit fruits and caramel. taste is light, flowery/fruity, with high carbonation, and a dry hoppy bitterness. its possibly a bit thin, but I enjoyed this ale a lot.

Beersiveknown (3000) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 22, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 Pours dark amber with good resinous aroma up front and tropical fruit. Pine, toffee and oatcakes. Good fresh hop bite and sweetish finish with grapefruit and resin.

TheEpeeist (3358) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
11.2 oz bottle, best before 8/12. Just clear brown with crimson tints. Thin but clingy beige head. Nose is peach, nectarine, red berries and candi with a touch of pine. Medium body; resiny, oily and sticky with a tingle. Is this the same beer i just smelled? Slight caramel sweetness then lemon peel, quinine and dried apricot. Brash but never quite over the top.

Donker amberkleurig met witte kraag. Vol in de mond met lekker veel koolzuur. Hop en lychee overheersen de smaak. Fris bitter. Wederom een lekker bier van brewdog.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 In this style, as a refreshing session ale, this is a favourite of mine. Looks great - amber with a decent foamy head. Nice upfront hoppy aroma with a well balanced malt taste that follows through nicely. Very refreshing and drinkable. If I was socialising in a traditional cask ale pub and they had a keg of this on, I’d be drinking it all night.
