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

slakemythirst (197) - - MAR 10, 2012
Blommig doft av rosor och maskrosor. Smaken bjuder på en dimension av ruby red grapefrukt. Kroppen kunde varit lite maffigare..men man kan inte få allt. Eftersmaken och beskan varar länge. God.

kryon (1767) - SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2012
Very hoppy aromas of grape, tropical fruits and some honey. It seems like a very dry hopped one... If aromas was great than taste wasnt what i expected. It is low carbonated it has some level of sweetness but almost no palate at al. Not satisfied with this one.

hackobock (2037) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Amber/copper in color, a one inch off-white head which diseappers quickly but leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, tropical fruits, citrus, peach and some hints of malt and resin. Taste has base of caramelly sweetness, the higher notes consist of some fruitiness from the hops but not as much as the aroma hinted of. A lasting medium bitterness. Medium body and low/medium carbonation.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2012
11.2oz bottle from Armanetti’s. Pours a lightly clouded, deep amber-brown colored body with a huge, over-carbonated, very dense and foamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is fruity and hoppy with a caramel and toffee malt backing. Orange and citrus pines, spruce, big mangos, peach, and tropical fruits. Flavor is slightly chewy toffees and caramels up front with lots of fruity hops. A touch of toast with the mangos, peaches, and citruses before this finishes dry with a medium, resiny, piney, spruce bitterness and a light amber malt sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a higher, creamy and lively carbonation. Overall, a well hopped amber. Nice toffee and caramel malt backing with lots of fruity, fairly assertive hops. Over-carbonated, but not bad.
