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

Nice head with a very inviting colour. A nosefull of flowery hops and a hint of butterscotsh. A round balanced taste that would allow .

AdamChandler (3589) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2012
4 euro. Moeder Lambic

A - red orange brown. Clear but dark SRM of 30. 2 finger creamy head. Off white slight brown

S - great citra dry hop. Minor caramel malts. German malts? Columbus hops?

T - delicious dry hopped citra and I’m guessing centennial. Citra for sure! Backbone is dark malts. Caramel and oak. Smoked malts? It’s hard to tell the hops dominate the beer taste.

M - 25% carbonatin. Light body. Very watery body. Dry hops on the finish.

O - This is an okay attempt at a west coast IPA. Not great but just okay. 85/100

mansquito (4114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Total Wine, Chantilly 11.2.oz ($): Pours a darkish amber with an off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, with a nice caramel backbone. Very well-balanced. This beer has none of the amber ale lameness. The hops are not extremely bitter, but they have plenty of flavour. This is not sweet at all like many ambers, which is pretty nice.

25th November 2009
Clear amber beer, frothy creamy head. Striking fresh hop nose. Light and slightly soft palate. Very light toffee in the malt. Nice base for light hops that are grassy and fruity but not too bitter. Finshes light and fresh and hoppy.

DeliriumT (382) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2012
Sugary caramel, malt and bready aromas. The taste is bittersweet. Nice amber ale

RumRunner101 (881) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Very well done moderately hoppy amber ale. Flavors in the body are toffee and caramel. One of the best of the style.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2012
Very fruity hop flavor and balanced in bitterness. Not as soap / detergent-tasting as many BrewDog brews can be.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2012
25 cl. draft / cask (?) @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas // dark amber with a tanned head// nose carries a very American hop profile, plenty of pine, bitter fruity with some american grapefruit, spices & underneath some counterpoint spices // bitter amber caramel malts upfront, definite counterpoint malt presence here, touch sweet upfront, bitter fruity, hops work well in the finish, pine heavy with a slight floral edge // body has definite caramel malts in it but overall still medium, perhaps touch too light even // excellent standard beer, if this is widely available at a good price point but even now still, lovely, a good standard from BrewDog
