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

Hazy red appearance, citrusy hop nose. Mildly hoppy, bitter West Coast IPA hop taste which fades into a roasty,malty sweet red ale finish. Mild carbonation pours into a two finger foam head.

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2012
The aroma is sweet with caramel malt and also has plenty of pine - citrus hops. The appearance is hazy amber with a huge head (maybe it is past it’s prime). The taste is dryer than the aroma and a tad bit herbal and papery. The palate is smooth. Overall I am not sure if it is right or not so it’s hard to judge but I am not a fan of this bottle.

Medium strong aroma has bit salty caramel, bread, citrus, pine. Hazy mahogany with short head. Taste is bitter sweet and has also dark fruits. Medium body, bit sticky feel, fizzy carbonation, long bitter finnish. A tasty one to be enjoyed.

Jur (452) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2012
Draught @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Nice malty session ale, with modest amount of alcohol. Quite tasty, but tends to get a bit on the bready side after a few. Good starter or second beer.

mjakopa (232) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2012
A dark red colour with a thinner head when poured. A wonderful aroma full of complex flavours. Some fruit, grapefruit with a hint of sweetness and maybe even coffee(?). Taste is slightly bitter at first, but finishes off really nicely and not too harshly. Would like it to be slightly more flavorful as the aroma suggests, but still a very drinkable red ale!
