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

February 16, 2013 - bottle shared by BVery. Brown pour with some head. Aroma was malty and hoppy. Taste was consistent with aroma. Very good for a style that I don’t care for much.

Bottle at five bar. Remember this was my first craft beer I ever had a few yrs ago. Great stuff nice citrus, pine hop aromas. Taste is easy going more citrus and caramel malt. Easy going amber ale. Good beer

Niksko (571) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2013
Pours a golden orange with two fingers of white head. Aroma is orange and faint pineapple. Flavour is clean and hoppy, with slight malt on the mid palate and a pleasant bitter floral and hoppy finish. Pretty basic but tasty.

AtronSeige (1150) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 13, 2013
Pours amber with a receding head of a dark off-white head. that leaves good lace. Aroma of hops and sweet fruitiness. Taste is initially just roast, quite astringent/bitter, then it leaves a hoppy, dry aftertaste. Medium to light bodied. Quite a lot of fizziness in your tongue. Overall a good beer, but I would prefer a wee bit of sweetness.

33cl bottle. Colour is clearly amber with a yellowish small head. Medium body and average carbonation. The smell is typically IPA, so hoppy, citrusy and fruity. Taste is hoppy as well, but the malt is noticeable. Refreshing, easy to drink, and pleasant overall. Very nice.

teddybeer (3225) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 11, 2013
[Thanks to andregoncalves]. Bottled. Brown colour with a beige head with medium lasting and good lacing. Aroma is malty, toasty with notes of brown sugar. Flavor has notes of bitter orange, brown sugar, traces of citrus hops and a light hoppiness. The final is light bittery with fruity hints.

I saw this beer the other night at Total Wine & More. It was new, so I grabbed a single bottle. I poured it, and it smells incredible. It smells like a barleywine. But then I took a sip, and almost spit it out. It has a very thin mouthfeel, and a weird metallic flavor. I am drinking this ice cold, so maybe that has something to do with it... but I am not impressed by this beer whatsoever. I expect more from BrewDog. Hopefully, as this heats up, more flavors will begin to show up... but ice cold, I will be lucky to finish the entire bottle.

330ml bottle - Amber colour. Wonderful hop aroma, fruity, with sharp grapefruit and a hint of passion fruit. Fairly good caramel flavour bit of citrus hops in there, but a bit of a let down overall.
