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

avantdagare (170) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2012
3 finger beige head that sinks to 5mm, red-amber body. Nose: Passionfruit, lychee, oranges and pine. Aroma: Lychee, passionfruit, oranges, caramel, the slighest hint of resin and grass. Thin mouthfeel, semi-long, semi-bitter ending.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Hazy reddish amber with a white head. Wonderfully balanced nose of floral hops and caramel malts. Medium bodied, and more like an IPA than an amber or red ale. Citrus permeates the entire palate and some classy hops accentuate the finish.

liinis (1758) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Quite delicious after the worst stingy carbonation goes off and it warms up a bit. Loads of great hops. sweetish and a bit dry in the end.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JUN 24, 2012
(330 mL bottle from Metro - Tuscany Village) The grapefruit hops are beautiful in this one. They could advertise it as a grapefruit beer and 90% of people would believe it. Unfortunately the diacetyl pulls it way down.

Ocean82 (82) - Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Nice deep red amber in color with medium head and lots of lacing. Great looking beer. Smells of pine, grapefruit, and hops. Taste follows smell with a bitter finish but not too long lasting. Mouthfeel average with good carbonation and dry palate. A decent red ale, if a bit overrated. --- Cheers

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2012
Fig and dark toffee malts, lightly spiced, barely vinous. Soft tan head which lasts well. Biscuitty sweet opening with hop finish. medium fill, light and bit bubbly palate.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUN 12, 2012
11.2oz bottle. Poured a rich amber color with a big, rocky off white foamy head. Aroma of piney hops and juicy citrus. Taste has a fairly large hop bite upfront, with grapefruit and pine, and hints of sweetness and roasted malt. A lasting piney hoppy finish. Lighter bodied with moderate carbonation.
