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

IPAgutten79 (939) - Skui, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2013 Bottle 330ml @ home from Polet. Pours red with big fluffy head. Aroma is hops and caramel. Herbs. Fruit as well. Tropical, peach? Not too fond of the aroma actually. Maybe it?s the peach I don?t dig. The herbs? ResinDon?t know. Fortunately the taste is much better. Hops, caramel, fruits and a fine bitterness to round things up. Not deeply impressed, but ok.

rhyshewer (71) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2013
Aroma: Herbal, caramel, hints of spice and liquorice. Appearance: Amber, tinged with red. Hazy with minimal head. Taste: Slightly sour, liquorice start moving to a distinct biscuity, dank finish Palate: Light and slightly oily, strong carbonation and a sharp bitter finish. Overall: Good, solid amber ale. Remarkably English characteristics given the hop list.

vami (449) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Great citrus aroma, which maybe doesnt stay in your nose forever, but pleasantly caresses your nostrils. Beautiful deep red amber color with ideal lasting head. Very tasty, hoppy with a very good malty backbone. The finish is not long and could be more bitter. It lacked just this last extreme moment to be my favorite beer. Still, pure class from BrewDog!

Silvan7 (1236) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle @ home. Colore giallo ambrato carico, velata, con schiuma beige chiaro finissima abbastanza persistente. Profumo di malti torrefatti, chicchi di caff e verdura cotta. Di corpo medo/forse un po debole in booca accentua lamarognolo che ricorda il radicchio.Gusto intenso non molto persistente. Nonostante il dry hopping in realt armonica, non troppo luppolata al naso e nemmeno troppo in bocca. Retrolfattivo di noce fresca.

sockless (21) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 6, 2013
Pours dark amber, straw head. Fruity aroma, slight citrus. Fairly bitter, tastes quite malty too. Fairly dry palate. Would be a nice beer to drink a lot of, if it wasnt for the price.
