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

On tap at Rogue Wetbar by Seabus in Vancouver. A darkish, brownish amber ale. Malts and dried fruit flavours predominate. Little hop evident. Nice one.

Pours a nice orange amber beer with a nice frothy head. The smell is awesome. Nice grapefruit smell, fruity. The taste is nice. Not very long lasting. Taste is nice bitter. Very watery and thin texture. The carbo is nice tho.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Re-rate:
Bottle, didnt check batch. Finally a bottle which tastes like I remember it. Clean roasty malt character with piney hops and mahogny color.

Bottle, Batch 237, BF 230713 - 6/3/6/4/12 - 3.1
I’m having difficulties to describe this one, because I cant pick up something that clearly stands out. Aroma of honey, slightly piney, something overripe (plums?) and with notes of vegetables? Muted taste, light bitterness, easy to drink.
The color has changed with time. It has become darker and has an unusual color. Some kind of hazy mahogny, but if I hold the glas against the sun it becomes lightly ruby red. Cool!
This is not my favorite batch. I prefer batches that had stronger piney hop character.

dnicolaescu (1874) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 9, 2013
Large beige frothy head and a beautiful mahogany hazy body. Aroma is dominated by aromatic hops: citrus, tropical fruit and maybe some pine. The taste is also fruity and hoppy, but with some toffee notes too. Finishes a sturdy and peppery bitter,

Light brown beer with a small beige head. Fruity peaches / peach marmelade on the nose. Grassy hops. Body is on the watery side. Could benefit from a bigger carbonation perhaps with a body this light. Some caramel. Not very complex. Quite a dull beer with decent hops. Not bad but not something you want more. The smell is the best on this one.
