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

33 cl bottle @ home, from Geers Oostakker; orange coloured with medium head; medium carbo; smell is exotic fruits, wood, hoppy; taste is wood, little dryness, medium bitterness, hoppy. Interesting and quite nice, but the aroma is more pronounced than the taste.

Irre Mischung aus Fruchtigkeit und Malz, wunderschöne rote Farbe. Sehr bekömmlich.

Poured from 11.2 oz bottle, bought in a 4 pack at Trader Joe’s. Date on this is best by 2-26-15, so I thought it would be worth a shot. Poured a cloudy muddy reddish brown, with a light tan medium sized head. Sweet malty nose, faint citrus. Taste starts sweet, with a bitter finish. Medium bodied with a mostly oil texture. Not as fresh as I’d like it as there is a bit of staleness to it.

Pours a ruby colour without a head. It has a fruity scent with hints of passionfruit and citrus. A balanced mild beer but the carbonation is a bit excessive. Overall a good brewdog beer.

Riktigt smakrik och maltig röd ale från allas vårt systembolag. Klart bättre än många av de andra ölen från Bre Dog.

Like literally the most carbonated beverage I have ever put in my mouth. The beer is extremely balanced. Like perfectly. It?s crazy. That being said I?m not really a fan of marris otter malts... That?s kind of a personal thing... That being said, this is like sprite carbonated. But like way more. It?s way too carbonated. If you like burping and not really being able to taste much, this is your dream beer. If you?re normal, this is worth a try, brew dogs are mavericks and deserve to be revered... So yeah...

Very carbonated. I’d say too carbonated. It tastes like a red ale but barely. It’s hard to taste over the intense carbonation.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear Amber red body under a one finger frothy beige head that left a bit of lace. The nose is mostly husky and toasty malt with some citrusy hops. The flavor is a little bland though, fairly dry roasted maltiness with a little husky grain on the back end. There’s a light snap to the finish from the hops at least. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, not the most interesting beer, but it’s drinkable enough to have one bottle.

mgajdaczewa (552) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
W aromacie jest karmel, czerwone owoce, lekkie przyprawy, pachnie raczej słodko i bardzo przyjemnie. W smaku za to jest raczej wytrawnie, sporo przypraw, lekki iglak, brakuje nieco kontry. Przypomina gruit tudzież sahti, posmak ziołowy zalega zbyt długo, nieco męczy. Zdecydowanie lepiej pachnie niż smakuje.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a beautiful amber color forming a medium bubbled beige head. Good retention and some lingering thin lacings left in the glass S: Sweet caramel malts mixed with a delicious grassy, flowery and a bit pinny American style hops. A bit fruity and some notes of caramel T: Slight sweet upfront. Caramel malts, toffee followed by a mild hoppy bitterness. Again, very flowery, grassy and pinny. Yeasts are also American style, I would dare to say that they’ve used US-05 American Yeasts M: Light body and good carbonation. Aftertaste is a mix of caramel malts and grassy hops O: Great drinkability. Lovely American Pale Ale style made in Scotland! Hooray for Brewdog [ BA Review @ 5/7/2014 ]
