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

12 oz bottle. Healthy lingering head over amber ale. Sweet malts fall back on a solid hop presence. Great mouthfeel & amazing palate.

330ml bottle from Asda. Pours amber-red with a small off white head. Aroma is very hoppy, hints of pine, pink grapefruit, cut grass, quite sharp. Flavor is similar, but more balanced, a bit bitter and a bit sweet.

AntonyWilson (60) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 19, 2016
330ml bottle: Pours a cloudy deep copper with no real head to note. Caramel, toasty and fruity on the nose. Medium bitterness, low carbonation, medium body that finished reasonably sweet. Slight honey on the taste with a good malt backbone. A decent red ale.

BeerNinjaUK (136) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours orange-reddy brown, clear with pale orange head. Aroma amazingly complex with pine, resin, apple, tropical fruits, iron, caramel and spices. Hops and malts both distinctive and strong. Overall a very tasty but well balanced beer.

Michael27 (159) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 15, 2016
Aus der Flasche vom Händler des Vertrauens. Das versprochene Bitter sweet Chaos stellte sich genau auch in dieser Reihenfolge ein. Interessant damit in der Machart und Wirkung, aber kein "Top-10"-Bier.

LazyPyro (333) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with a small beige head. Aroma is malty, spicy hops, pine, citrus. Taste is malty, caramel, fruity spicy hops, pine. Bittersweet but more on the bitter side, especially in the finish.
