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

KennethArd (442) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2013
Fresh citrus, mandarin and grapefruit in the aroma. It’s red / brown with a small head but flat carbonation. Also in the flavor it has a lot of fresh hoppy notes with a smoot malty finish. It’s very smooth with very good harmony.

langeveld12 (431) - NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2013
Ppurs a large frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes. Body is clear and sparkling, color is reddish brown. Aroma contains lots of hoppy things like herbs, grass and citrus fruits. Next to that there's light dough, geape, raisin, cherry and raspberry and other forest fruits. Flavor starts off light acidic, then goes to sweet and finishes in bitter. It's sour fruits, then more sweet fruits and a sharp bitter ending. Body is medium, texture creamy and carbonation soft. This beer is one of a kind, but because of the quite bitter finish not really my kind. I love all teh fruits, though.
