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

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Tried this at BrewDog Nottingham. A really nice amber ale. Good balance of hop and malt. Love it.

From a bottle at home. Pour is interesting dark brown and cloudy. Taste is full of malts but not quite over the top. Yes, quite dull and more than average slight bitterness. It seems to have this slight tartness to it but it never really becomes apparent. A little medicinal for a lager lover. For an amber ale, IMHO, could use a few more manners. Not impressed. I have yet to find a brewdog that I can appreciate, my taste buds are not refined enough to enjoy these beers. Spent nearly $4 for this bottle, way too much.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Clear reddish brown color, medium sized head. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma is full of hops, pine, citrus and herbs with sweet malty caramel underneath. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Slightly dry finish. Very good.

pictoman (1212) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Poured from 330mL bottle. Copper brown with tan head. Aroma of caramel malt with a hint of roasted malt, some hops and nuttiness. Lighter body, light bitterness. Something tells me this isn’t necessarily indicative of this beer based on the other reviews. I’ll re-rate in the future. For reference, this was batch 113 (best before 20-05-14).

JeyAre (240) - - MAR 16, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Nice slightly hoppy aroma. Golden red copper color with orange yellow head. Great freshness taste with a slight hoppy feeling and slightly fresh bitterness of aftertaste. Have I found my all new favorite?? Need to try again and maybe rerate! As promised, I rerate this. Increase the appearence to 5 as the red copper colour is really cool. On the other hand I decrease the overall to 17 and taste to 8. Still one of my favourites, still this nice citric aftertaste, but it lacks a bit of alcohol in the taste. 2 or 3 % more would make it just perfect. Excellent overall anyway!!

Flaska från SB. Vackert rödbrun i färgen med lite skum. Pga förkylning har jag svårt att sätta dofterna rättvist men söt och frisk. En bra röding som saknar lite kropp men ger en fin fräsch känsla i munnen.
