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

Amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Sweet caramel and resiny hops. Sweet caramel and a good resiny bitter finish. Medium bodied but a bit fizzy.

12oz bottle, sampled at the request of lizardville staff, the dry hopping is what makes this beer a 3+ for me, without that it would be a boring amber. Long live the hops. Consumed while watching the Cleveland Browns, in a factory of sadness.

Zupastan (160) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, from Geers Oostakker; orange coloured with medium head; medium carbo; smell is exotic fruits, wood, hoppy; taste is wood, little dryness, medium bitterness, hoppy. Interesting and quite nice, but the aroma is more pronounced than the taste.

This beer is always worth getting back to it. Very aromatic - American hops, we all know them very well already. However these guys managed to find a perfect balance between amazing aroma and bitterness. The effect is powerful but not overwhelming. The head could be more foamy, but let’s not be too picky, the tap version is perfect, the bottle version is good. Quite dry on palate however it can be just me tasting many Belgians recently. The finish is mainly roasty, caramely and bitter which builds into quite complex show. Overal 5 AM? Anytime, even if it’s 5 AM in the morning.

serjaymz (170) - Istanbul, TURKEY - SEP 9, 2013
Açık maun renkte, kırık beyaz köpük. Köpük çok yoğun değil,bardakta gazlılık da yüksek değil. Koku kompleks, tatlı, şerbetçiotu ve karamel kokuları hakim.. Tadım yine kompleks, şerbetçiotu acılığının yanında tatlı ve kavrulmuş malt hissediliyor, damakta açıklık kalıcı.. Net, kompleks, başarılı.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2013 Bottle. Dark amber with off-white head. Aroma of malts and hops. Very hoppy with hints of malt. Bitter and tangy aftertaste
