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 were 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 whos to know whats 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 peoples 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, youll 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

Continuing my acquaintance with Brewdogs 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..

I picked one up in my local Sainsburys, mainly because I havent tried it before and didnt really know what to expect from an amber ale (having not knowingly tried one before). Appearence: It looks decent enough, certainly more interesting than a standard bitter. Smell: Hoppy and malty, didnt blow me away but then I tried it at below room temperature. Taste: Powerful hop bitterness straight away, reminding me slightly of Punk IPA. Pine like and citrusy which then subsides and the maltyness comes through. Certainly more interesting than I was expecting! Palate: The sharp bitterness of the hops at the start prevent it from being watery or bland. Mildish carbonation. Overall: A surprising beer, one which I wasnt really expecting much from. I am pleased I took the plunge and although not overly complex taste wise I could imagine this being a very nice session beer.

Couleur : cuivre. Nez : trs fruit, caramel, sve de pin, des fruits rouges qui la rendent assez originale, pche et un ct exotique (ananas). Bouche : trs fruite, une trs belle amertume (qui fait plus que 25 ibu je trouve) la rend trs dsaltrante. On a toujours la sve de pin, des fruits rouges, du pamplemousse et de la mangue. Finale : longue, sur lamertume, le caramel et le pamplemousse, elle nest pas trop asschante, et dsaltre bien.

BeerViking (4447) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Tap at the Beer House Paddington, amber-brown with a lacing fine beige head, toasty seville orange and grapefruit nose, pine and marmalade hops on the palate followed by caramel toffee and a juicy bitterness. The only spoiler is the slight cloying sweetness in the finish.

Cerveza mbar con capa de espuma ligera. Sabor dulce y lupulado con final semi-amargo. Se notan los lpulos de adicin ltima con poco hervido y dry-hop. Apta para lpulo-adictos. De lo mejor en su estilo.

akoeninger (718) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Looks great but was a little disappointed. Ruby red with an off white head that sticks around awhile. Light malty and hop aroma and light caramel, hops, flavor. Unexpectedly light body, with a slight metallic aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
