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: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

scoth (474) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Pours clear cherry-brown, with a big puffy beige head, fine clinging lacing. Big hop aromas, pine, grapefruit, grass, as well as sugar cane, toast, and some fruity esters. Medium thin body, velvety, lightly dry, and crisp. Mildly sweet, a hint of tartness, then finishes medium-bitter, with a bitter dry aftertaste. I really enjoy hoppy ambers.

330ml brown bottle. Pours dark amber, hazy, holds a small cramy white head. Aroma is sweet with a bit of floral hops and caramel. Flavour has caramel malt below citrusy lemony hops. Light bitterness. Leafy, grassy hop aftertaste. Light body, fine tingly carbonation. Decent session amber.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Freakin good for an amber ale. Super drinkable with a good hop profile, nice smooth body and ultra clean finish. I’d session the crap outta this if it wasn’t $4 a bottle. grab one, it’s tasty.

Scopey (6147) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle from Brewdog bar Aberdeen. It pours hazy light brown with a foamy off white head and high carbonation. The nose is wood, orange, pineapple, mango, apricot and some grape. It’s medium bodied and the taste is wood, smokey, nut, orange and lemon rind, caramel, astringent and some sourness with a bitter-woody finish. I will have to re-rate this at some point because it has tasted a lot better on keg and cask previously.

Bottle. Hazy dark amber body, with a huge off-white to light tan head. Aroma-taste: pine, citrus, resinous, balanced with a slightly metalic-tea, caramel finish. Not as bitter or flavourful as what the aroma might suggest. Medium bodied.

Monkeypower (172) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2011

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Dark brownish red color with a large head. Strong hoppy aroma, predominantly pine and dank. Plenty of biscuit and caramel malt notes. A metallic and grainy flavor up front. Very bitter, but quite an abrasive bite without a lot of flavor. Dry finish

pharkanklaus (34) - KBH N, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle at home. This beer has become my standard PA since my local supermarket started selling them. Pours amber red with little head.The aromas of american dryhop reaches the nose almost instantaneously. Very grassy, citrusy nose. The carbonation is medium-high and the mouthfeel is delisiously dry. The malt-flavour is at a minimum. A faint caramel flavour balances the aromahop dominated taste. A bit watery in the aftertate with a medium-low pleasent bitterness. Very good in with a danish lunch (rugbrød med leverpostej, æg, pølse (godt med løg til det hele)) . Cheers!
