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

zgaier (1889) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours an amber orange with a white head and aroma of caramel, hops, and fruits. Taste is well balanced, of sweet malt, hops, caramel, grapefruit, and other fruity notes with a bitter finish. Drinkable, solid amber ale

bulldogops (2250) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle 330mL. Oh Lordy Lordy, a red ale that doesn’t suck. Clear amber-reddish pour with a bubbly white head, sticky lacing. Aroma is a bucket load of floral, citrusy hops. Taste is mild caramel malty sweetness, with a powerful punch of hop textures. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth, medium bodied. This redhead beats a trashy blonde anyday, despite it’s soul questionability.

Complex aroma of fruits, citrus, hops and malts. Medium, lasting head with good lacing. Dark ruby body. Also complex taste of fruits, malts and hops with very good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Delicious long-lasting aftertaste.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 30, 2013
On tap. Ruby-like body, with a low white head that leaves a fair lace. Nothng special on the aroma side really, some malts, but taste is something different. Medium bitter, with notes of hops and caramel, very nice. Medium carbonation, oily texture, medium body. Nothing too special, but a good one.

Bottle from Asahiya. Deep, tangy citrus nose, with some dirty loamy notes. Murky brownish color, light tan head. Concentrated grapefruit initial/ caramel and crackers in mid / smooth and tasty finish, with light hop tracks remaining. Medium body. Nicely done. Hops are omnipresent but not overwhelming.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JUN 16, 2013
Good beer. Not the most fantastic from this company. I think that many other craft beers have caught up with them and made this flavour combination popular, so I felt I had tasted it before. Light and grassy with citrus hops, a dry finish with a citrus tingle on the tongue lasting for some time later.
