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

Color is amber with beautiful creamy head. Aroma is amazing, herbs, chamomile, sweetness. Taste is chamomile it reminds me of a chamomile tea I had as a kid, nice memories. A bit watery some hay in it as well. Excellent amber ale.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 Fruity. Little disappointing in truth. When I was a young boy folk often talked about a lack of bottle. Well, rings true tonight. SToP PreSS - had in a bottle on Boxing Day 2012, much better than I remember on tap. Yep.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Subtle aromas of orange and citrus, quickly giving way to mild aromas of caramel malt and dark honey. Overall a delicate, subtle, interesting nose. The palate remains med-med-light, with fine carbonation, and elegant, lingering notes of citrus, sweet grapefruit, light caramel, and honey. Very mild bitterness, if any. Enjoyable. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Bardzo dobre wytrawne i szlachetne piwo. zrobipne z 5 odmian chmielu i słodu. Wybornie i goryczkowo smakuje. na finiszu posmak kwiatowo-trawiasty który trzyma dłógo. Zapach bardzo aromatyczny, ziołowy i przyprawowy. Solidne piwo o bursztynowym kolorze. Polecam

WeissGary (286) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2012
This is both one of my favourite beers by BrewDog and in my top beer list. Nice pale ruby red body, quickly dissipating head. Strong fruity and malt fused aroma. Quite a bitter grapefruit taste throughout but highlighted by warming sips. Lovely malty aftertaste.

SarkyNorthener (3496) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle. Red amber in colour small head.Aroma of grapefruit. Taste is of grapefruit also. This tastes like a weaker version of a good IPA. Palate is average medium bodied. Its an OK beer, but not exceptional.

vipinvelp (3320) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2012
Darker redish color with brown solid head, sticky and lacing. Aroma is sweet, with definately some coffee. So is the taste, coffee and bittersweet, nice beer after all. Aftertaste is dominated by that same conbination, bitter winning the end game. (The Hague, 201209)
