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

GirlFriend (37) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2014
DWS Amber colour with nice foam. Sugary and citrusy aroma with a hint of sewage. Taste is hoppy, fruity and bittersweet. Crispy carbonation. Interresting :)

Bottle, well chilled. Fantastic fruity, dry hopped aroma, initial sweet fruits give way to the classic brewdog dry hop hit. Have had this before, but can’t remember it being this good. Would be a great introduction for a non beer drinker into the wonderful world of craft.

maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber pour with red tinge and pillowy cream colored head. Aroma of malts, earthy, and hops. Taste of caramel malts, faint hops and slight fruitiness. Medium bodied, higher carbonation and quick crisp end to the flavors after sipping. Very good beer for the style, very drinkable.

I am not a big fan of super hoppy beer, but this delicious red ale goes down smooth with just the right amount of hop flavor. A new favorite for me.

Maxbier (1000) - Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Aroma: malty, sugar, hint of spice cookies. Color: ruby red with a tan head. Lite carbonation. Coating mouth feel, smooth and even beer. Gentle hop flavors, definitely leans to the malty flavor side. Even consistent flavor throughout. Nice lingering finish.

Caña en el lupulo 08-01-14 a los 5 días de pinchado y botella (julio de 2012). Aromas especiados y hervaceos. Color ambar oscuro con poca espuma blanca. Cuerpo ligero bastante fácil de beber. Sabor también ligero, maltoso y hervaceo con cierto amargor final. Buena y refrescante.

Not as fresh as it should be but it seems like a really solid beer. Simcoe hops all around will win me over most of the time.
