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

Another great beer from Brewdog. Tried this after the Trashy Blond and found it to be much more enjoyable. Some nice flavor and carbonation.

This type of red ale really works for me: a good combo of citrusy and earthy hops, and a malt character leaning more towards caramel than towards biscuit. I’d definitely have this again.

JamesBirch (25) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Tap - Railway Tavern - (Dalston) - very intense floral hop aroma, active mouthfeel ending with a breaking aroma of orange maltiness, finish is crisp with a coconut butterscotch ending. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

niquillis (2146) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
On keg at the barrels, Berwick upon tweed. Pours red brown with decent head, well balanced carbonation. The right temperature as a normal temp would make this too tart. An excellent red ale and maybe keg is the future. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TEJA (1822) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget Sweden. Semilasting light brown head. Clear dark amber color, that hits the right spot for an amber ale. Huge hop intensive piny aroma that will wake you up eaven at 5 a.m. Hoppy taste that then gives you a little caramell and bitterness. Dry and well fermented.

northropfrye (2913) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012
On tap at Mr. and Mrs. Bund, Shanghai. Hoppy aroma, sweet almost Belgian malt. Dark amber colour with nice white head. Very flavourful. Great beer.

netvare (37) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Soft and light with moderate bitterness, with a decent hop aroma. Color is somewhat dark brown with some hints of red. Very typical brew dog beer.

Nuffield (3912) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Moderate brown color. Huge pine aroma. Perfume and a set of flavors like something that would be uncharitable to mention. Funny finish--rough edge, vegetal. Aroma beats flavor. (tap at Barrels Ale House, Berwick)
