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

Do i recommend it?: yeah, well if you want a quite funny beer to drink with alot of taste and sweetness ok. But it does not fully fold into my taste. Will I drink it again?: probably not in a couple of years. Maybe ice cold (god forbid) a warm summers eve ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Impressive Amber ale. Drinks smooth. Good one to share with larger louts and may convince them that craft beer is the future. -- raided in the wild

Smells like coffe and hops. Brown hazy color with a creamy tan head. Tastes like toffe and coffe. Palate is bitter from beggining to end. Overall is a fine beer.

Oh this is good. Incredibly complex. Rich aroma tinged with dark fruit and spice. Taste is similar but finished with masses of hop character. Hard to think of another 5% or less beer that is better than this. Almost certainly the best of its kind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jado (630) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2012 Great looking beer. Deep red gold with a tight beige head that lasts. Malt, caramel and light floral tone on the nose. The taste is nutty caramel overlaid with some assertive hops that lend a nice sour note. Won?t be for everyone, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A nice amber red ale. I smell and taste caramel, hay and grassy hops.....a bit of citrus!? Small bitterness in the end.

A good ale with hops. A nice amber beer with copper reflection, a nice medium head. Smell as hops and orange.First taste : flowers and orange, aftertaste : hops but for a court period. Really interesting beer!
