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

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a dark amber with a thin off-white head. Complex and interesting aroma, with an instant citrus/herby hit, and more subtle blends of cereal and toffee after. Taste is mostly sweet with a light bitterness - caramel and malt at the front, with a more intriguing hay, grass and green veg aftertaste. Fairly lively carbonation, with a lingering light bitterness. A very fine beer, but slightly underwhelming when compared with some of Brewdog’s other offerings (it ain’t no Punk IPA!).

Bozo_skeleton (989) - Grenoble, FRANCE - FEB 24, 2013
Ale ambrée, houblonnage résineux. Ne conviens pas en bière de soif et ne conviens pas non plus en bière de dégustation car elle manque de corps. Elle accompagne bien un steak frites le midi.

Bamsen78 (5003) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with off-white head. Clear hoppy aroma with a spicy note. Bitter hoppy flavour with a spicy note, perhaps coriander. Dry finish. Definitely decent.

blipp (8011) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Sweet malty base, a little fruity and grainy, with floral hops, and lighter earthy notes. Very drinkable.

visionthing (4726) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2013
33cl bottle at Parkteateret (Scene). Pours deep amber with an off-white to beige head. Deliciously hoppy aroma with pine, fruits, malt and hints of caramel and citrus. Medium body. Sweet and fruity with a nice and bitter finish. Very well balanced. Delicious and refreshing. (2013-02-15)

haukur (1700) - 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.

JefVerstraete (2829) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2013
Amber colour. Low Carbonation. Very refreshing and easy drinkable beer. Very bitter hoppy aftertaste. Balanced!

BVery (9483) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Big pillowy head on a ruby red pour. Citrus hops and bready malts. Solid brew.

ryanfolty (2380) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2013
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.
