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

TheEpeeist (3400) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
11.2 oz bottle, best before 8/12. Just clear brown with crimson tints. Thin but clingy beige head. Nose is peach, nectarine, red berries and candi with a touch of pine. Medium body; resiny, oily and sticky with a tingle. Is this the same beer i just smelled? Slight caramel sweetness then lemon peel, quinine and dried apricot. Brash but never quite over the top.

Donker amberkleurig met witte kraag. Vol in de mond met lekker veel koolzuur. Hop en lychee overheersen de smaak. Fris bitter. Wederom een lekker bier van brewdog.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 In this style, as a refreshing session ale, this is a favourite of mine. Looks great - amber with a decent foamy head. Nice upfront hoppy aroma with a well balanced malt taste that follows through nicely. Very refreshing and drinkable. If I was socialising in a traditional cask ale pub and they had a keg of this on, I’d be drinking it all night.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 0,33l bottle from Csakakjósör, Budapest. A very beautiful amber ale. Dark amber and red colour. Epic hoppy aroma. It’s fresh and fruity. It smells a bit like delicious herbal. Its taste is spicy bitter and fruity. Orange and grapefruit. Sweet hoppy palate. A really nice, beautiful, deliciuos ale. It worths its prize.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 14, 2011
A - Pours a slightly hazy copper-red color with a finger of frothy off-white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is full of sweet toasted caramel malts and lots of piney/earthy hops. Bit of citrus mixed in there as well. T - Starts off with some huge piney hops with some strong bitterness. Bit of toasted sweet caramel malts as well. Through the middle, some more bitterness comes through with a bit of bready malt character. The finish is a mix of piney bitterness and some light citrus that ligners. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a strong pine resin feeling left on the tongue. Quite dry as well. D - Very drinkable. Fairly bold flavors for the 5% abv. The bitterness and hop flavor is nicely balanced by the malt though.
