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

Lore (1942) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 29, 2012
reddish colour, moderate head; the aroma and taste is dominated by hops with citrus (mainly grapefruit) - apart from its colour, this beer is more like an IPA than anything else...at least for me

chinchill (3901) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2012
11.2 oz bottle (batch 023), Dated best by 22 Jan. 2013. Beer is hazy, orange-brown with a moderate head that soon reduces to a durable ring. VERY hoppy aroma for style; more like an IPA .. seriously! The hops remain in the flavor but in a very subdued and mild form. It seems like I’m drinking a different beer than the one I am smelling. Nice. Beer is medium bodied and has appropriate medium carbonation, lending a crisp feel.

asheft (2897) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
[on tap at BrewDog pub in Edinburgh] Hoppy, cat piss aroma. Clear amber appearance. Excellent nutty malt flavour balanced by a blast of US and Australian/New Zealand hops. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, nutty finish.

StueyD (1555) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
A mid to dark, flame reddish brown coloured beer with a thick, cream coloured head. A strong hop aroma, piney, citrusy, grassy with just a hint of liquorice. A medium bodied mouthfeel. The taste starts off along the same vein as the aroma, piney, grassy grapefruit and orange citrusy hop flavour are abound, genty making way for a more rounded flavour, of biscuity malt and that liquorice element from the aroma. Thats not to say the hops disappear, they are well represented in the finish.
