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

Nice red ale. Good bitter aftertaste. Could have had more depth. Keeps a nice head throughout. Clear with a bit of haze. Fruity aroma. Hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great mild taste with a bit of bitterness. A lot lighter than the Red IPAs I normally drink.

hohops (278) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle. Appearance is burnt amber, a little bit of haze/cloud. A small off white foamy head which clings to the glass. Aroma- lots of hops, caramel hints, fruity, bit of raisin, floral hints. Taste- pronounced hop bitterness, medium to full in the mouth, fruits, hint of blackberry, grassy notes, firm malt profile, biscuity towards the finish, which is bitter. Tasty.
