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

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 wasn’t for the price.

Aroma muito bom, frutado, um pouco adocicado. Cor vermelha nao muito escura. Gosto cítrico, lembrando maracujá. Uma amber ale para ser apreciada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Creamy aroma with notes of berries and grapefruit. Taste is light but pleasant. Fresh fruit with some malty sweetness balanced by a healthy hop presence. Finish is light. A great session beer.

Pours a deep red with small off white lacy head. Aroma is hops with a thick overlay of sweet caramel. Taste is smooth and well rounded. The forward taste of hops is followed by caramel, before coming to a drawn out slightly dry end. A superbly drinkable beer.

Is everybody drinking the same 5 a.m. Saint as I am? I love reds, and the claim that this is the god of reds is a joke. I like many brews from the dog, but this is awful. It has zero body and is watery and bland yet sour too. I'm very disappointed in this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber in colour with an off white head. Mild scent of hops. Smooth taste with hints of caramel, and a pleasant bitter finish.

decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Sweet caramel and resiny hops. Sweet caramel and a good resiny bitter finish. Medium bodied but a bit fizzy.

12oz bottle, sampled at the request of lizardville staff, the dry hopping is what makes this beer a 3+ for me, without that it would be a boring amber. Long live the hops. Consumed while watching the Cleveland Browns, in a factory of sadness.

3.5
Zupastan (160) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, from Geers Oostakker; orange coloured with medium head; medium carbo; smell is exotic fruits, wood, hoppy; taste is wood, little dryness, medium bitterness, hoppy. Interesting and quite nice, but the aroma is more pronounced than the taste.

Moscicki (129) - Tarnow, POLAND - SEP 13, 2013
This beer is always worth getting back to it. Very aromatic - American hops, we all know them very well already. However these guys managed to find a perfect balance between amazing aroma and bitterness. The effect is powerful but not overwhelming. The head could be more foamy, but let’s not be too picky, the tap version is perfect, the bottle version is good. Quite dry on palate however it can be just me tasting many Belgians recently. The finish is mainly roasty, caramely and bitter which builds into quite complex show. Overal 5 AM? Anytime, even if it’s 5 AM in the morning.
