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

Panzerfaust (563) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle from Jumbo, Batch #118 In the glass shows a hazy reddish amber color with a big fluffy off-white crown that diminishes slowly. Aroma is nicely hoppy and fruity, IPA like. It shows notes of apples, pine, resin, hay and lemongrass. Great! Taste is quite bitter, intense and fresh. Hints of resin, lemon, mango and grainy, caramel notes from the malty backbone. 25 IBU my ass! Feels dry hopped and with at least 75 IBU. Dry finish, very drinkable and with good carbonation. Long aftertaste of hops. A rich, bitter amber ale with loads of character.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Dark amber with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel hops and grapefruit. Sweet taste of malt, caramel and grapefruit. Great hop bitterness from American hop varieties, great dryness and a long bitter hop finish

DrSilverworm (6946) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2012
11.2 fl oz bottle. Best-by date: 5-8-12. Nice, darker clear amber color, with a good, thin but persistent creamy light tan head. Some splotches of lace. Very tasty malts here, with a distinct spice that I can’t name that lends a unique sort of smoky nutty taste. Subdued hop balance. Carbonation is a bit stronger, but the texture is dry and smooth. A tasty and unique amber ale.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - JAN 12, 2012
Served in a half pint glass. Crystal clear, brown with red golden glints. First aromas are cedrat and litchi that remind me Cascade hop-like flavours. Unfortunately the bitter and fizzy unbalanced mouth as well as after taste of rubber and malt disappoint. This amber ale would be too boring as an aperitive but could be drunk with a meal.

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle. Amber red with white head. Hoppy nose. Malt flavour with over riding hops. Nelson. the ’amber ale’ tag seems almost unfair with the depth of hop flavour. A great utility beer.

dzimm27 (136) - - JAN 8, 2012
Very hoppy, floral aroma with notes of muscat. Golden brown color with small amount of head. Taste is sharp, quick and hoppy with a dry finish. Not overly complex but still quite tasty. Tastewise seems to fall almost into an IPA category, for which is it is average.

rozsoma (511) - HUNGARY - JAN 1, 2012
Frissítő, gyümölcsös aroma. Száraz komlós keserűség. Mindkettő elfért ebben e csodálatos nedűben.

dogbomb (967) - ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
330 ml bottle. Deep red/amber with a yellowish/cream head. Heavy on the hops - grapefruit strikes through, as do lemons and tangerines. Bitter on the tongue, but it opens out some nice roasty sweetness. Settles down into a nice length bitter and mid-dry finish. Delicious!
