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: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

Cask (gravity) @ Wenlock Arms, 26 Wenlock Road, London, Greater London England N1 7TA.
Clear medium to dark amber color with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, light heavy hoppy, grapefruit, orange. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, and a dry finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO a very good session beer ;O)) [20090731]

Clear amber beer, frothy creamy head. Striking fresh hop nose. Light and slightly soft palate. Very light toffee in the malt. Nice base for light hops that are grassy and fruity but not too bitter. Finshes light and fresh and hoppy.

Tasting at Papsø’s
Amber color. Wonderful hop aroma, fruity, with sharp grapefruit and a hint of passion fruit. Fairly good caramel flavor and very good hopping; actually the beer is limited by having a too dry mouthfeel and finish, while the hopping is gorgeous.
