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

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 12, 2011
Csak a jó sör, Budapest Érdekes, halvány vöröses, vérnarancshoz hasonló színe van, habja vékony, tört fehér és igen gyorsan elillan. Illata igen átható, rendkívül gyümölcsös, piros grapefruitos, fenyő gyantás és kissé még éretlen szőlőhöz hasonlatos. Ez a kissé éretlen szőlő és vörös grapefruitos íz nyílik ki először, aztán jön egy óriási adag gyantás komló és lehengerel bennünket a maga gyümölcsös kesernyésségével, amit reménytelenül próbál ellensúlyozni egy kevés maláta és kissé csípős és fanyar élesztő. Könnyű teste van és a csípősségben rendesen szerepet kapnak a benne lévő, apró kis buborékok is. Utóíze gyümölcsösen édeskés és mellette igen száraz, hosszan tart. Különleges és érdekes főzet, számomra olyan volt, mintha egy gyümölcsös komló lekvárba kóstoltam volna. Ha lenne ilyen, szerintem ilyen íze lenne.

crazyvin (1911) - New York, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Poured a dark amber hue with a tan head that had good retention and nice lacing. Aroma was a mix of caramel malts and grassy hops. Flavor had a nice bitterness to it similar to an English ale. Malts were mostly sweet but did have a nice toasted bread note. Finish was slightly dry.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle:   Fiery amber, large finely bubbled head, tannish, very nice lacing.   Super citrusy powdery nose, smells just like Tang.   No joke!   Unfortunately, well maybe fortunately its not like Tang.   Its also not like any other Amber I have had.   Does appear to have some earthy/soily notes as well, on the nose and on the tongue.   Really, tastes like dirt was added.   Tiz malty, but has this powdery sweetness that I associate with kool-aid, pixie stix, and in this case... Tang!   Way too early/soily for my tastes.   Yeah, this just isnt working for me.

AshtonMcCobb (2380) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 28, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a murky brown ale, not amber as expected, it’s hard to see if there are bubbles but there is a nice head. The nose has pine and pineapple pith. The taste is soapy with pine and more grapefruit pith, then some earthiness and then clean again. The palate has decent texture and structure, then there is a low earthy note in the middle though there is a fresh ending. Overall, a great beer apart from that low note three-quarters of the way through.

radagast83 (4445) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2011
11.2oz bottle. Poured a dark copper color, medium sized off-white head. Aroma was caramel malts, hops. Flavor was sweet malts, eh,. an alright beverage, very session-able, though pedestrian.

mike_77 (2989) - NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2011
Red amber colour. Red berry aroma. Flavour is sweet, juicy at first with some peach syrup in there. Becomes dryer and more bitter in the mouth. Good balance of hop and malt.
