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

ANZUShophunter (112) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle from Brisbane Brewhouse. Pours crimson with modest head. The broad malt base is reminiscent of an Irish red, but with a hoppy kick. A most enjoyable brew, but I would like to try it closer to the source.

McSherman (342) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2015
Kirschfarben mit beständigem weißen Schaum. Leicht malzig und karamellig, aber dominierend ist der fruchtige Hopfen, der zwar bitter, aber nicht zu extrem ist. Das Bier geht fast Richtung IPA. Egal, in welche Schublade man das Bier stecken mag: es schmeckt ;-)

rayaron (780) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle 330ml. Nice clear amber with big beige head. The aroma has notes of citrus and caramel with hint of onion and butterscotch. Bitter-sweet flavor with notes of caramel, citrus and some onion, piney and a bit alcoholic. Medium-bodied. Well balanced amber ale.

uckelman (403) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Pours clear, copper-colored. Dappled tan head. Aroma has a lot of citrus and pine. Medium-light body, slightly oily. Bitter-ish. Not quite what I was expecting from an amber aie. Pretty good, though.

sarauckelman (276) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Cloudy dark amber/brown with mouldy head. Strong aroma of cascade hops (lots of pine) but very little of that comes across in the flavor. Flavor is fresh and hoppy, more like an IPA than a red, quickly finishing with a watery feel.

janubio (542) - SPAIN - AUG 19, 2015
Red colour with a off white head that does not hold, leaving some lace. Aroma of tropical fruits, dark fruits and chocolate. MEdium to light body, rough palate, fizzy carbonation. Taste of tropical fruits, malts, caramel, bit thin.
