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

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2012
Tap@BrewDog (Manchester 7.Jul.2012) Dark mahogany body, spare frothy beige head. Some malt and hops, then you sense the citrus, plum and prunes. So well-balanced taste and very drinkable, still the very characteristic BrewDog flavour...It’s hard to describe...

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 This amber has a beige head and the beer is a bit cloudy. Love the smell of this beer, tropical fruit with some light malty notes. The hops certainly come through on the taste, big but well balanced...if you can say that about a beer. Great beer!

Dogbrick (10033) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
On draught at Oslo in Galway. This brew pours a dark amber-copper color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and caramel. Light body with flavors of herbal hops and caramel malt. Touches of tropical fruit too. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

330ml bottle. Dark copper red amber colour, frothy tan head, caramel and fruit hop aroma. Tangy dry bitterness, hoppy and sweet, smooth fruity finish. Quite drinkable.

garza (572) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - NOV 21, 2012
Pours a dark copper loo with a thin tan head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and flowerly hops. Medium sweetness, hints of raisins but very subtle, some orange zest and lightly bitter on the taste. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and a dry mid bitter finish. Ok.

zimbo (811) - SCOTLAND - NOV 18, 2012
Beige head on top of full chestnut body. Waves of ripe kiwi, smoothness and a flat middle. Then long chocolate nuttiness mixed with mango and papaya.Interesting but not a heart grabber. Lots of clingy head. Character and individuality at the expense of complexity and devlopment.

Nijstrom (272) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours clear and amber with a average, frothy and lasting off-white head. The aroma contains very hoppy notes; mainly grape and pine and caramel. The flavours is very bitter and moderately sweet. It’s medium-bodied, with a quite oily texture, soft carbonation and comes with a long and bitter finish.

dexcansino (519) - Andalucía, SPAIN - NOV 11, 2012
Una cerveza refrescante. Con aromas afrutados tipo mango o melocotón. Espuma volátil. Sabor acaramelado y amargo.

bergstaden (1845) - Røros, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Amber with off white head - nice fruity hop aroma - malt to support the hop with some sweetness, has a nice fruity hop taste along with some dry bitterness - lasting hoppy dry end - this was nice
