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

Bottle. This beer is a hazy brown with a small head. There is some scotch flavor up front that evolves into a chewy finish. Interesting and nice to try, but not one of my favorites.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Bottle from a boutique in Arras, France. Pours a lovely clear blood red with a small beige head. Aroma has some really nice pine to it, with inviting caramalts. Flavour is sweet but balanced by the sharp, spicy hops that really shine. Well balanced, and everything shines on its own. Feels very light and almost watery, but in a good way. I could drink this a lot.

kapusil (958) - HUNGARY - SEP 6, 2012
On tap. Amber/brown body beige head. Aroma of grapefruit and herbs with some caramelly sweetness and a hint of chocolate. Lots of caramel, a tiny chocolate, herbs and citruses. Very complex, and also very refreshing. My personal favourite from Brewdog.

RichTheVillan (5465) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Easy drinking hoppy amber ale, resinous, pine with a malty caramel backbone. Could drink a few of these can’t wait for BrewDog Birmingham.

Slightly beige, slightly spongy foam from caramel, caramel and citrus aroma and resinous hop waving to us. The body of the beer is lighter than expected to hop the waves traveled digs caramel malt taste with a sense of the happier scenes.

VonClausewitz (132) - Italy, ITALY - SEP 1, 2012
Bell’aspetto ambrato/ramato con una schiuma beige poco persistente. Naso intenso, persistente e complesso con note di passion fruit, pompelmo, cedro, resina.... Secca, corpo snello, abbastanza amara, pulita e persistente....finale lungo che rimanda ai luppoli aromatici usati per brassarla.... Ottima......

Swaroga (1864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2012
33cl bottle. As usual filtered, red amber liquid with small dirty white head. Nose ; strong hop notes of grapefruit and pine. Zest. Some little tart with delicate cherry. Sip ; Low carbonation, low density with oily texture. Moderately sweet bread feeling with strong but well contained hop burst. It develops a fine bitterness, like a grapefruit but still not overwhelming like it is with IPAs. The beer is refreshing and tasty. Pity it’s that expensive abroad.

BillKismet (3659) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Red-orange amber, decent head. Sticky, hoppy nose with candi malt. Flavor is similarly juiced with candi malt, some bubblegum, and candied pineapple. Skunked candy finish.

dbingham (69) - - AUG 23, 2012
Hazy red appearance, citrusy hop nose. Mildly hoppy, bitter West Coast IPA hop taste which fades into a roasty,malty sweet red ale finish. Mild carbonation pours into a two finger foam head.
