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

Once again BrewDog put up big numbers here. Citrus hoppy nose with an interesting clear amber look. Bit thin on the tongue. Slightly bitter end. From start to end full of aromas - reminded me my first London Pride. Very good one for sure.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Flaske fra polet: Brewdogs ordgyterier har en tendens til å være tøvprat, og mye av sorten. Det som er interessant er at de kjører på med humle: "Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial. Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops", og det gjør virkelig noe for aromaen. Jeg blir allikevel litt skuffet etter de første munnfullene, den er god men har ingen umiddelbar staying power. Skulle vært interessant å prøve denne fra fat. Iconoclastic, my foot. Fra fat på Kooperstiven Nordsiden, Hønefoss: vi kommer rett fra Hønefossrevyen og heldigvis er der plass ved bardisken. Mye fint fatøl å velge i, og denne var en av de vi hadde. God aroma av citrus, blomster og brent sukker. Kraftig smak med middels munnfylde og bitterhet, en fruktig amber ale med noe brent karamell/knekk mot slutten. Kort skum.

A red colored ale. The taste is balanced though is a BrewDog beer so is easy to drink.

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.

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 lúpulos citricos, con una pequeña base de malta caramelo. en sabor tambien mucho lúpulo pero poco amarga. aqui si que se nota más las maltas dulces. curiosa.

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
