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

Monchito_IPA (130) - SPAIN - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 Precioso ámbar oscuro. Espuma perfecta, persistente. Con mucho cuerpo a pesar de no tener muchos grados. Intenso aroma frutal y floral con notas cítricas pero sin ser una explosión de lúpulo. Sabor intenso, amargo, muy equilibrado con el dulce de la malta. Por decir algo negativa quizás demasiado carbonatada.

For an Amber ale, this is a winner. Usually lackluster in taste, this Amber ale exceeds them all. Almost like a pale ale, but not as much of a kick. Love it.

5 AM Saint really lives up to the holier-than-thou, pretentious notes that accompany this beer on the side of the bottle. Simply put this the sheer taste of this amber ale has catapulted it into one of my top beers of all time. Nice to see that Brewdog can walk the talk. Though it must be noted I preferred this in the cask over the keg. Unfortunately it seems as though Brewdog have stopped using casks altogether

bartlebier (1560) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2012
Truly exceptionally rich IPA style amber ale that had my nose and taste buds knocked out straight after opening - a gateway craft beer for me with intermingling hop bouquets so intense I have been able to detect fractions of this beer’s taste profile fully in other IPAs. Floral, juicy, low on malt yet with a satisfyingly mid-full mouthfeel for an amber ale. - Found myself going back to sniff the empty bottle days after I had the 2nd of 2 purchased. Probably best drunk fresh, as I can see the amber ale maltiness taking over on the hops in time. First of 3 Brewdogs I had so far that can fully keep up with the expectations set by its overeager marketing...

Continuing my acquaintance with Brewdog’s masterpieces. True amber-reddish colored body topped by a proper heavy beige head. An amazing combination of ripe pineapple, fresh squeezed lime and caramel malty notes, a bit piney also. Taste is completely unbalanced towards bitterness, but I like it. Some toffee behind this curtain of bitterness, and also there is a correct earthy tartness that suits to red ale style. Medium-to-almost-full body, lively carbonation. Lingering bitter finish, pretty drinkable though..

fabioanselmo (173) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - JAN 17, 2014
Cerveja lupulada com toques frutados. Aroma muito semelhante às IPAs, coloração bem avermelhada, algo de caramelo no sabor. Retrogosto amargo mas balanceado. Cerveja saborosa, com belo corpo e boa espuma. Simplesmente sensacional.

HammerTroll (335) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Dark red color with no head. Great fruity and herbal nose. Fruity, citrus and heavy hop aroma. Really long medium to heavy bitter finish and medium sweet. Full body (Pivkan; Vrutak 0,33l bottle)
