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

Full peppery hops, fills the nose completely. When poured it has a light brown, watery appearance. Classic, clean, pure hoppy brown bitter. Nice and full palette.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Sweet bitter full bodied aroma. You can really smell the red. Its a hazy medium red with a lil bit of white head. It has a sharp bitter taste at first and a very malty flavor. Its almost like a sour tart and bitter taste all at once. Very complex.the aftertaste is sweet and slimy. Not a horrible red but not for me

Donker amber. hoppig, grapefruit aroma. Smaakt naar citrusfruit, hoppig. Bittere afdronk die smaakt naar meer.

I’m more of an IPA fan than one of red/amber ales. So this is pretty much as good as a red ale can get for me. They’ve taken a traditional style with delicious biscuit, caramel flavour in the malts and added a lot of new world hops to freshen it up. Not at all stale like all the Smithwicks I used to drink. Thanks BrewDog.

ThreeCats (804) - ISRAEL - AUG 15, 2013
Deep chestnut color with nice off-white head. Aroma of grapefruity hops. Taste of mid-caramels with a hoppy finish. Not a typical American amber, but a very good one.

Outstanding creation from Brewdog. Fruity and hoppy on the nose, bittersweet on the tongue and doesn’t hurt that it looks gorgeous in the glass. The king of beers.
