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

S_Side_Smitty (545) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Pours amber-red with a minimal off white head. Aroma is mild hops, honey & lite malts. Taste is an evenly balanced blend of pine and honey-like syrup with a pleasant lite malt finish. A great session beer.

zacgillbanks (2880) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottles from BrewDog website and Sainsbury’s. Hazy amber-red beer coloured with a sweet rich strawberry, blackcurrant, raspberry and orange marmalade flavour followed by a malty, toffee and bitter-sweet floral and pine hop finish. Excellent!

This beer was one of the biggest suprise. After I heard about 5 hops, 5 malts I did expect huge amount of bitter taste. What did I got? Flowers and wonderful citrus aroma and taste. One of best beer I had oppurtunity to taste. You should try it at least once just for the test.

BiereLuc (1036) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Bière ambrée avec une impressionnante base maltée (principale qualité). Au bilan, c’est juste une rousse. Une bonne, mais rien de renversant. (En 140 caractères / #TwitterStyle)

A: citrus, strong, herbs, very pleasant, wood A: as red as can be, clear, minimal head, tan foam T: very bitter, medium sweetness, lightly sour P: medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish O: Uma cerveja intensa na aparência e nos sabores. Agradável para quem curte um bom amargor. Com um creme mais denso ficaria mais bonita.

branko (50) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 2, 2015
0,33 bottle. Pours copper color with thin white head. Tropical fruits, citrus, fruit bubble gum aroma. Expected more from the taste after nice aroma. Grapefruit taste with medium bitterness with Hoppy background. Creamy texture.

damjan (18) - CROATIA - MAR 31, 2015
33cl bottle. Nice copper-red color with thin white head. Fantastic smell of oranges and grapefruit. Unfortunately taste doesn’t follow. Body is thin and bitterness takes over pretty quickly. Nice bitterish and citrusy aftertaste.

Bottle. Amber color with a white head. Hoppy crispy and fresh amber ale. Caramel notes and nnice malt amount. Not a fan of this one, but is ok.
