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

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Very tasty beer. Amber brown look with creme, almost golden, froth. Looks very inviting. Smell is floral, citrus (grapefruit), hop, malts and sweet caramel. Flavor is likewise with a very nice body and well balanced sweetness and smooth bitter. Medium thick with a sugary nectar like texture and well balanced carbonation. Excellent beer!

McDef85 (37) - ITALY - JUL 17, 2016
Schiuma pannosa, odore complesso di erba, fieno, pompelmo, a naso e in bocca domina la lunga lista di luppoli. Beverina, agrumata, buon amaro finale che ripulisce la bocca ma la lascia acquosa.

From Brewdog Brussels >> Bière ambrée fort aromatique au nez avec une belle longueur caramélisée en bouche. Fort maltée au palais, torréfiée livrant des arômes biscuitées avec un arrière goût vague de chocolat à la noisettes grillée, en même temps sirupeuse pesante en caramel, voire un peu écœurante. Bien amère sur des notes argileuses aromatiques fleuries et d’agrumes avec une très belle longueur.

Perpignan73 (15) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Pint from tap at Brewdog, Birmingham. Clear amber red with off white head. Malty, circus aroma. Pleasant, hoppy, bitter sweet taste more citrus possibly orange and grapefruit on the palate, but not much complexity. A tasty red ale, but I was hoping for more zing and depth.

This is probably my favorite hoppy beer. A perfect blend of hops and citrus in this one.

Skarecrow (97) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2016
330ml bottle with a BB of 25/3/16 Didn’t get any oxidized character in the nose though. Poured red-brown with a good head. The initial bitterness quickly disappears - not much body and a bit thin on the palate. Also maybe a touch sour but this is prob due to the age of the bottle.

Served in a tulip from a 330ml bottle. Pours clear ruby-red with a thin off-white head. Aroma is citrus hops, caramel and some malts. Taste is very similar to the nose - citrus hop and caramel, subtle bitter short-lived aftertaste. Slightly watery body with medium carbonation. Quite a simple hoppy brew, nice and refreshing!

En meget sød øl der har en en del underlig syrlighed i slutningen af øllen. Ellers god.

Surprisingly simple beer. Refreshing clear and some aroma but no deepness here! I was a bit disappointed but that’s my problem!
