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: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

I love their style, i love their beers and this is another great one. Very nice colour, hop in the smell and in the taste. Nice mouthfeel and good body.

djd07 (3372) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy amber with a thick creamy beige head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is strong floral and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter hop and light malt with a nice lingering dry finish. A very good amber from Brewdog.

Hair6a11 (1325) - Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle; pour is naturally, golden amber, with a nice fluffy beige head that does retain well. This one does indeed have bucketloads of dry hops present on the nose, as well as the tongue ; the hops are piney and slightly astringent - the malts are slightly sweet, but give way to the bitterness of the hop profile. The body is on the light side, and that is quite alright. This is a decent drinker for me, at least.

maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle at home. Healthy lingering head over amber ale. Sweet malts fall back on a solid hop presence. Great mouthfeel & amazing palate.

tkrjukoff (4022) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2011
@CBF. Pours Deep mahogany wit a nice tense tanned head leaving lace. Aroma is caramel, pine, citric and malty. Drinkable, good session. Flavor is same as aroma. Finishes bitter sweet.

wedgie9 (1843) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Tasted on 5/29/11 from a 330mL bottle at Lush West Town, batch #052. Pours clear light amber with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to an even, thin blanket of lace. The nose is full of rye-bread malt, some caramel and brown sugar, along with a bit of citrus and resin hops. The flavor is, once again, more malty than anything with rye-bread, caramel, brown sugar, and the hops coming in on the back of the palate with some resin and citrus hops. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long resin bitter hops finish.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2011
Draught at The Local Taphouse (Sydney, Australia). A treat this - a real mix of aromas and flavours. Kind of lolly-like, but in a good way.
