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

Draught. Malty aroma, pours dark copper. Medium head. Slightly sweet toffee malt, but not too heavy, then a smooth bitterness with a moderately long finish. Not too heavy on the carbonation. Very nice.

sulawang (773) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2012
pours cloudy brownish orange with a smallish head, not much retention, good lacing, some slow streams. Aromatic malts, caramel, and hints of tangerine hops on the nose. Buttery smooth creamy entry, silky mouthfeel, tastes of bitter orange peel, sharp fresh lively hops, malts, grapefruit, caramel, finishing boldly hoppy bitter. Medium complexity, medium-high depth, great transitions, great carry, great drinkability.

33cl bottle. It is a very nice red ale with lemon and plum smell, long-lasting small white foam. Taste is citric first than thin malt, after these great fruitfulness (plum, mint, apple) and some hop and smoke at the end. I liked it very much!

WilleLW (230) - Lund, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2012
Dark red amber colour with a nice off-white head. Aroma of hops, grass and a hint of caramell. Taste of hops (with a light bitter taste) and some sweet notes. Also grass and some grapefruit. A little watery which gives a feeling of a thin body. But overall a nice beer. Easy to drink but with some taste to it.

330 ml bottle. This is great amber ale, deliciously looking and fruity and tasty. Nice aroma, and great mouth feeling. Dried fruits and apples and caramel are identifyable.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 On tap in Dublin. Hazy red amber. Hoppy taste. Bitter finish. I really like it but the taste is not for everyone. Y

fellebag (1216) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2012
Lovely off-white head. Darker than expected. Sweets, fruits and some dried fruits. Much the same for taste, hops of course, but hint of bread too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells wonderful sweet. Tastes wonderful in the beginning but the momentum taste unfortunately. But I still give this a high rating because it was so good. The aftertaste lingers for quite some time and although it is quite lovely. So far one of my top ten beers I drank.
