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- I really enjoyed this beer, one of the best amber ales i’ve had. Nice balance of hops and malts. Great hop aromas, with anise malt taste up front and then finishing off with a yummy hop bitterness.

blankboy (6525) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
Bottle [330ml] at Rhino. Pours a deep ruby with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, a good amount of fruity hops along with resin and piney hops, some pepper and pumpernickel. Spicy, malty flavour with a good amount of hops along with some fruit and bread. Surprisingly spicy. Decent bitter finish. Average bodied. For an Amber Ale this is really good, I quite enjoyed it. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

Do i recommend it?: yeah, well if you want a quite funny beer to drink with alot of taste and sweetness ok. But it does not fully fold into my taste. Will I drink it again?: probably not in a couple of years. Maybe ice cold (god forbid) a warm summers eve ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Impressive Amber ale. Drinks smooth. Good one to share with larger louts and may convince them that craft beer is the future. -- raided in the wild
