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

KansaiBeerLvrs (4849) - 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 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

bulldogops (2475) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle 330mL. Oh Lordy Lordy, a red ale that doesnt suck. Clear amber-reddish pour with a bubbly white head, sticky lacing. Aroma is a bucket load of floral, citrusy hops. Taste is mild caramel malty sweetness, with a powerful punch of hop textures. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth, medium bodied. This redhead beats a trashy blonde anyday, despite its soul questionability.

Complex aroma of fruits, citrus, hops and malts. Medium, lasting head with good lacing. Dark ruby body. Also complex taste of fruits, malts and hops with very good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Delicious long-lasting aftertaste.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 30, 2013
On tap. Ruby-like body, with a low white head that leaves a fair lace. Nothng special on the aroma side really, some malts, but taste is something different. Medium bitter, with notes of hops and caramel, very nice. Medium carbonation, oily texture, medium body. Nothing too special, but a good one.
