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

Delicious refreshing beer. Strong malt backbone, fruity tropical hops. Well carbonated. Citrusy like a beery 5alive

Jimthechap (1625) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 3, 2011
Hazy russet colour, mocha caramel head and a slap in the face of full, grassy aromas, caramel, in your face hops and ginger tart. This is sensational in that it’s a sensation, fantastic in that it is in the realm of fantasy, awesome in that its smell leaves me in awe. This is one of the best smelling beers I have ever had. I was expecting it to be creamy and sweet and then a riot of hops. Instead it was fresh, light and then a cool flow of hoppy grassy bitterness that swills around the mouth and lingers on the palate. While it does the malt character makes itself known with a polite cough. What I like about this beer is that it promises one thing, delivers another, but it delivers. It’s a beer that makes you thin about what you’re drinking. A beer that I’ll be recommending in spadefuls.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2011
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unlcear. Dense beige head. Aroma of caramel, sweetness, grass, flowers. Flavour is grassy and piney. Has caramel, grape and herbs. Medium to full bodied. Sweetish caramelly bitter in the end. Very nice and for 13 kr. quite a bargain.

From a bottle I brought back from pre-ZBF in 2010. Pours amber with an off-white head with lots of lacing. Smells of caramel and some fruity hops. Slightly bitter taste with a crisp finish.

Benzai (8146) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2011
Quite ok dark amber color. Smells a little like an IPA, fruity and a little bitter. Firm body for a beer only 5 ABV. Taste pretty good as well. Nice one!

My all time favourite beer, I love it. The aroma is stunning, just a gorgeous hoppy Amber ale, packed with flavour. Can’t fault it!

VertBaconStrips (2072) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
Poured out a thick white cap with weak lacing, the beer is a clear reddish amber. Sweet peachy aroma, heavily hopped, caramel, light floral which is very good and somewhat mysterious. The taste does not hold up to the same level as the aroma and I find that this beer lacks a well defined balance. Light spice, mellow malts, dulled out citrus. This is ok. Medium bodied. Finishes decent but I do not need other.

dfinney23 (1651) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Pours a deep murky amber with foamy off-white head. Aroma is very outdoorsy with pine, grass and floral hops. Pine and strong hop flavor but little bitter aftertaste.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Poured almost red, with an off-white lacing head. Delicious aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, candy, melon, nicotine and hops. Medium bodied and carbonated, oily as it should be. Bitter taste with a dry bitter aftertaste. Really well done, an excellent ale!
