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

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2012
On draught at Oslo in Galway. This brew pours a dark amber-copper color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and caramel. Light body with flavors of herbal hops and caramel malt. Touches of tropical fruit too. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

hohops (272) - 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.

Clear and currant-like appearence, with a strong and gross head, agrumate and sweet aroma with some traits of marsala, strong malted taste (raisin, ginger-like features - sort of a light syrup trait) and a bitter palate. Overall, very enjoyable red ale

minihame2 (198) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2014
Amber body, small whitish head. Strong hoppy with some caramel. Soft taste, similar to IPA in terms of hops but not nearly as sharp. Some bitterness in the end. Smooth mouthfeel, slight carbonation. Not bad.

Jmar33 (152) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. I’m a big fan of hoppy red ale’s so this is right up my alley. I know it’s not meant to be an IRA but a bit more of everything would have made me really happy.

mateuszk (231) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Amber red in colour, white head. In aroma very nice hoppy aroma - citrus fruits, mango with some caramel background. In taste solid bitterness - grapefruit-like and malty base very nicely mixed, bitterness could be weaker. Medium carbonation and body. Very nice one.

Ruby red, medium head. Grapefruit, caramel, spruce. Semi-light palate, medium bitterness. Enjoyable, not special though.
