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

beeebon (450) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
I picked one up in my local Sainsburys, mainly because I haven’t tried it before and didn’t 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, didn’t 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 wasn’t 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 : cuivrée. Nez : très fruité, caramel, sève de pin, des fruits rouges qui la rendent assez originale, pêche et un côté exotique (ananas). Bouche : très fruitée, une très belle amertume (qui fait plus que 25 ibu je trouve) la rend très désaltérante. On a toujours la sève de pin, des fruits rouges, du pamplemousse et de la mangue. Finale : longue, sur l’amertume, le caramel et le pamplemousse, elle n’est pas trop asséchante, et désaltère bien.

BeerViking (4796) - 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.

freretoc (1935) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 30, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur ambrée forte et une mousse qui tombe vite. Une excellent bière très houblonné racé avec une grosse pointe de litchi et citronné, excellent produit.

Cerveza ámbar con capa de espuma ligera. Sabor dulce y lupulado con final semi-amargo. Se notan los lúpulos de adición última con poco hervido y dry-hop. Apta para lúpulo-adictos. De lo mejor en su estilo.

Ruby red color with low white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and some hops. Taste is malty and caramel with medium bitterness and fruity from hops. Very drinkable

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

Excalibur123 (494) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2013
Color ámbar claro, media capa de espuma perdurando unos mms, buenos aromas a lúpulo fruta y madera, en boca trago con amargor medio que desaparece en el posgusto, sabor a té rojo y matices salados.

Roodachtig bier met medium schuimkraag, fruitig zoet en niet al te sterk bier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
