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

amber colored beer reminds me of alpha dog from Brewdog, Biter caramell and herbs,good and hoppy.

One very good Amber Ale. It has a very nice light taste and a hoppy and malty aroma. Very lively.

guiroul33 (222) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle 33cl from le Barboteur, Schaerbeek. I was expecting more from this one, it lacks a bit of everything. Not bad for a red ale though.

Tropical and sort of a Rummy fruit. I'm not normally a red beer fan but this is a great alternative to someone that wants great full flavor without being hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear amber with beige head. Aroma is malty, toasty subtle fruits, subtle hops. Taste is malty, slight toast and subtle fruity hops. Kind of bready. Light body, slight bitter with some dry toasty malts in finish. NOT MUCH CHAOS!

Vestergaard (840) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2015
Reddish amber, medium sized off white head. Aroma is pretty malty, pretty hoppy, slight caramel, slight berry fuityness.. Taste is malty, but with a bitter finish. Average body, average carbonation.

at_the_hop (57) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Genuine russet red. Thin head. Smells sharp and fruity. Really sweet caramel malt cut through but a light acidity and some hops. Some marzipan and cherry like a Dr Pepper. Getting some cocoa and cut grass. Loads going on with this and it’s good for the style...but I just don’t like it that much.

Krigla (107) - SLOVENIA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy red amber colour with small beige head. Average carbonation. Aroma of fruit, citrus with hint of caramel. Taste is fruity, citrusy, medium bitter with some sour notes. Overal excellent, refreshing red ale.

Bawelt (23) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2015
Pourtant pas fan des bières amères de ce genre, celle-ci m’a vraiment surpris. Au nez, un arôme de litchee est incroyablement présent avec des arrières notes de fruits rouges. En bouche, l’amertume attaque de suite et choque totalement par rapport au nez. Le litchee revient pour laisser en toute fin de bouche un arôme caféiné qui sort d’on ne sait où ! Une bière très surprenante et intéressante !

Pours dark amber. Aroma is mostly honey, with a hint of dandelion. Taste is watery and bittersweet. Finish isn’t long.
