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

shoulderbroken (2379) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle from Morrisons. Pours dark amber, almost brown with creamy and frothy beige head. Darker than I remember actually. Aroma is quite hoppy, bit pine, but cat pee, and a bit of fruitiness too, some orange, and lemon. Little bit of stink too. Taste is initially bitter, but this fades into sweet toffee maltiness with just a hint of bitterness. Bit of a prickle in the mouth. Pleased to drink and enjoy the bottled version again, as previous to this I have had it on keg in a couple of pubs and been disappointed. Presume that the Brewdog bar won’t have this problem.

abstractbeer (239) - NORWAY - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a copper brown/amber brew. Small head. Fruity aroma, with notes of yeast and grassy hops. Wonderful flavor with lots of piny/grassy hops up front, then a solid bitterness and semi-sweet caramely malt flavor in the finish, and finally it goes full circle and ends in with more of the initial hop flavors. Light body, easy to drink, perfect carbonation. Pretty great!

bottle. interesting - didn’t enjoy as much as I thought I would - however, for an amble ale, about as good as it gets.

11.2 oz. bottle from Dawson’s. Nice amber pour with small tan head. Strong grassy aroma. Very hoppy up front with a nice smooth finish. Great amber. One of the best I’ve had.

ladnewton (1526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2011
Keg at Brewdog Camden, London on 10th December 2011. Amber with offwhite film of foam and partial lacing. Intense herby/grainy aroma; taste in-mouth is grassy herbiness, fine grapefruit and hemp. Rich and intense. There follows a lasting finish of intense hoppiness and a slight soapy note. Zingy and engaging texture and a very dry finish.

reebtogi (4492) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with about a finger of white head which leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel and citrusy hops. Taste is light caramel sweetness balanced nicely with citrusy hop bitterness and a hint of nuttiness. Medium body and nice carbonation contribute a nice mouthfeel. A pretty enjoyable amber ale.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - DEC 6, 2011
Iconoclastic amber ale (c) без сомнения является одним из самых популярных сортов, производимых шотландскими «панками». И хотя стилистически его относят к безобидным янтарным элям, от «брюдогов» ждешь приятных неожиданностей даже в таких, казалось бы будничных, случаях. Цвет янтарно-красноватый, очень насыщенный и красивый. Пена достаточно солидная, держится долго и оседает равноячеистыми «бельгийскими» кружевами. Аромат скорее хмелевой, но карамельно-солодовые нотки тоже просматриваются (мармелад еще показался). Вкус также на хмелевой стороне, пиво достаточно горькое, несмотря на свои детские 25 IBU. Комбинация из пяти американских сортов хмеля и одного новозеландского уравновешивается пятью видами солода, что придает «пятичасовому святому» деликатный цитрусово-карамельный вкус. Отличное «сессионное» пиво.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2011
From Key keg. Amber golden color with an average creamy off-white head. Caramel malty aroma with lots of aromatic fruity hops. Flavour is balanced between caramel and lots of citric fruit hops leadign to a dry bitter finish. Lovely.
