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

Dark reddish brown beer, medium head Good aroma of tropical fruit and pine. Taste is more subtle with malts and bitter hops in not so good balance.

Excelente red Ale. Tem um aroma excelente por parecer ter mais lupulo. É como se fosse uma Ipa red ale. Vale muito tomar novamente ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fukito (882) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 19, 2015
Pour a clear shinny copper/ red color with an offwhite head. Aroma is caramels and some citrus. Same clean caramel and citrus on the flavor. Medium to light palate, ok and balanced but rather unidimensional.

Fashawn (335) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Onesta ma niente fi speciale. Ricorda la hardcore ipa,con meno impatto. Caramello e spremuta di luppoli in bocca, liscia e scorrevole con carbonatazione meDia. Buona birra ma niente di straordinario

Luvystypotables (934) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pours a cloudy copper color without much head, minimal carbination. Aroma of malt and fruit, with hints strawberry. Taste of malt, fruit, hops and strawberry. Surprisingly dry feel with a clean finish.

mike5326 (1081) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Murky copper color, large amounts of sediment, small white head. Tangy fruit and strawberry aroma. Medium body with a strong malt flavor with nice hops accents and medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zacgillbanks (2888) - 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!

Marshall93 (7) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 15, 2015 does not count
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.

33cl bottle at home - truly stands out as a red ale with balanced fruit, caramel and citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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)
