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

Full peppery hops, fills the nose completely. When poured it has a light brown, watery appearance. Classic, clean, pure hoppy brown bitter.Nice and full palette.

Sweet bitter full bodied aroma. You can really smell the red. Its a hazy medium red with a lil bit of white head. It has a sharp bitter taste at first and a very malty flavor. Its almost like a sour tart and bitter taste all at once. Very complex.the aftertaste is sweet and slimy. Not a horrible red but not for me
