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

haukur (1665) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 21, 2013
Very tasty amber. Hoppy nose but a big malty and sugary palate. Light and drinkable, good example of the style and a good hop profile.

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.

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.
