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

Bottle. The best thing about 5 a.m. Saint is its appearance - a beautiful red to golden body. Hoppy to the hills - very tasty.

Martin243 (814) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
330 ml bottle cellar cool. Pours dark red with an offwhite head. Immediate grapefruit aroma and taste, like the Punk IPA, and the first mouthful delivers a lot of citrus/tropical fruit. Then, in the lingering aftertaste, there are some satisfying caramel malt notes, followed by a bitter hoppy finish.Really good beer.

Draft at Euston Tap, London. Great dark ale, perfect hopping over dark, green body. Malty and rich, buttery and touch medicinal. Really terrific.

Beermack (684) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 26, 2012
UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 33cl bottle. Pours deep copper red with thin off white head. Tons of pungent fruity hops and caramel malt on the nose. Deep fruit & pine flavour, bit of fig, plenty of caramel malt. Wonderfully satisfying finish, long aftertaste - a storming amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dalfaro86 (306) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 23, 2012
Cerveza color ambar, con cabeza mediana que presenta regular retencion. En el aroma al igual que la Trashy Blond y la Punk IPA, aunque con menor intensidad, tiene notas de frutas tropicales y notas citricas caracteristicas de las India Pale Ale, ademas tiene notas de malta y de caramelo; en resumen es una aroma excelente con un gran balance. El sabor es exquisito, con un gran balance entre malta y lupulo, es referescante, cremoso, de cuerpo medio, con nivel medio de malta y medio-alto de lupulo, con notas citricas, de frutas tropicales (mango, maracuya, piña), y de caramelo. Brew Dog me ha sorprendido gratamente con su linea base de cervezas, ya que todas poseen un gran balance tanto en aroma como en sabor; simplemente deliciosas. El unico problema es el precio, pero esperemos que en cuanto su demamanda aumente (que estoy seguro de que lo hará), se importe un mayor volumen, y por lo tanto se redusca el precio.

5 AM Saint really lives up to the holier-than-thou, pretentious notes that accompany this beer on the side of the bottle. Simply put this the sheer taste of this amber ale has catapulted it into one of my top beers of all time. Nice to see that Brewdog can walk the talk. Though it must be noted I preferred this in the cask over the keg. Unfortunately it seems as though Brewdog have stopped using casks altogether

Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Big hop aroma and flavour well balanced with malt. Very close in style to an American IPA. A great beer.
