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

Bosbouw (2779) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 Mooie roodbruine kleur. Goede maar weinig schuim. Ruikt, kruiden, hop en iets honing. Smaakt ligt en fris. Lekkere hop tonen. Lekker tussendoor bier.

tamaritelmago (15) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2013
amber ale escocesa claramente inspirada en las cervezas americanas. mas lupulo que malta, que aunque no sea lo propio del estilo, a mi me gusta. aroma muy marcado por lpulos citricos, con una pequea base de malta caramelo. en sabor tambien mucho lpulo pero poco amarga. aqui si que se nota ms las maltas dulces. curiosa.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4806) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 7, 2013
It pours a dark opaque color with a beige head. A nice floral hop aroma with citrus/pine notes and a caramel malt base. the flavor is hop forward, quite bitter & hoppy for an amber ale. I think it is made for people who like IPAs, good but not for me.

Keg @ Beer House, Waterloo. Was never convinced by the bottle, tastes better from the keg. Cold, fruity, hoppy, refreshing.

Pours a reddish brown hazy brown. Nose is malty with caramel. Taste is a well balanced blend of malts and hops, sweet and flavorful. Finishes smoothly with no real lingering . quaff score 7 / 10

zgaier (1922) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours an amber orange with a white head and aroma of caramel, hops, and fruits. Taste is well balanced, of sweet malt, hops, caramel, grapefruit, and other fruity notes with a bitter finish. Drinkable, solid amber ale
