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

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2011
Bottle rating. The beer is quite red with a generous head that lasts. The nose is dominated by hops with the palate also being very hoppy with a curry-like quality which I’m guessing is from the yeast?

nearbeer (3602) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2011
12 oz. Big caramel, resin and citrus nose. Flavor is similar with some nice toasted nut and oak notes on the finish as well. Nice looking amber with a lasting sticky head. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, dry and astringent. Very nice; really more of a red IPA.

gunnar (5128) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle.Pours nearly clear amber with a small off-white head.Fresh hoppy aroma, piney and peach. Taste is first and foremost fruity and flowery fresh & crisp hops, good balanced against the moderate sweet malty body. Watery and clean mouthfeel. Aftertaste got some light mint as well.

brnandersen (1813) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2011
330ml bottle from Superbrugsen: Aroma of hops, pine, malt, and a slight hint of fruit. Amber colour with a big, beige slowly diminishing head that lasted throughout. Clear and sparkling liquid. Flavor is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, caramel, pine, slight citrus, light resin and weak hops. Medium body. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, light to medium bitter. A nice beer

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2011
0.33l bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber body with a big lacing beige head. Aroma is sweet malts and there is no doubt that there are a lot of fruity and grassy hops in here. Also notes of peach, strawberries and pineapple. Body is medium, watery texture and lively carbonated. There’s a almost burning bitterness from the hops, but it’s nicely balanced by the sweet malts. Ends slightly watery with a mild burning bitter aftertaste. I would imagine that this could be a really great beer to have available in 6packs in the supermarket. Unfortunately I live in Norway - the country where the taxes easily passes the costs of the beer itself AND since this is over 4.7% abv it wouldn’t be allowed anyhow.. Nice thought though, and a really nice, refreshing amber.

17 May 2011, bottle. brown reddish, clear, no bubbles. citrus rind and astringent hop bitterness. med body and fizzy. for a seriously hopped amber ale it has enough nutty malt to balance the beer. pretty good.

Sampled at WCBF with brother bob. Nice clean amber pour with a nose of various fruits and hop. A nice caramel malt taste blended with fruit, peach, orange peel and pine. Decent dry finish. Well done.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 14, 2011
Tükrös rézszínben mutatja magát ez a főzet, melynek közepes méretű, sárgásfehér habja szép csipkét hagy maga után. Illata édeskés, virágos, gyantás. Csípősen, édes, karamellás ízzel és szirupos testességgel indul a kóstolása, melyet aztán nagy adag gyantás, citrusos komló követ, narancshéjat ill. mézes cukorkát idéző ízekkel. Lecsengése hosszan tartó és száraz, melyet fűszerek és citrusok kísérnek. Remekül kiegyensúlyozott, finom és emiatt igen könnyen csúszó egy ser…
