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

Smells better than it tastes. Hops to the fore on the nose, but rather subdued and subtle on the palate. Nice cloudy amber colour and decideably quaffable.

Nice flavour with a little bitterness at the end. I'd order a second pint and then look for the next taste sensation for the third. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nez: Caramel, résineux, floral Bouche: Caramel, pamplemousse, résineuse, florale, épicée Une bière que je n’avais pas aimée la 1ère mais que je redécouvre positivement. De belles notes de caramel, d’agrumes et de résineux emplissent le nez et la bouche.

Acaro (223) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 13, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2017 Aroma: Toasted and citrus fruit notes. Appearance: Red/brown color with cloudy liquid and white/tan head. Taste: Light sweetness with light sour notes. Palate: Medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. Sweet and bitter roasted finish. Overall: Toasted feeling but the hops leave a great memory.

BeerLieutenant38 (97) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 10, 2017
Pours a somewhat hazy red-amber. Foamy off-white head with strong lacing. Aroma has prominent caramel malt notes with subdued fruity hops in the background. Relatively sweet flavour. The bitterness lurks in the background. Finish is dry. Light-medium bodied. It’s fairly subtle and I like that.

Rychuku (115) - POLAND - JUL 7, 2017
Some sweet, red fruit aroma, the closest would be cherry. Mildly hoppy. Bronze/reddish colour, average head with holes appearing. The taste mainly influenced by Munich malt and caramalt, also fruity, but not impressingly. Bitterness mostly absent. Average body. My first Brew Dog, expected more.

jamiemac87 (170) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Pours ruby with a small off-white head. Malt and steeped fruit on the nose. Taste is much of the same with a defined hop presence. Finishes nicely. Good.

sebsky (80) - ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
0,330 bottle @home. Fruity aroma,nice red colour,medium carbonation. You can feel tannins on tongue and palate. I like it.

3.6
phaleslu (10246) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Draft at BrewDog USA, served in a flight. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and fine film while leaving ropes of lace in the glass. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, tea, grass, florals, and pine needles. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, malty, slightly sweet mouthfeel. Good balance.

3.3
beermaris (268) - LATVIA - JUN 28, 2017
Nice aroma and look. But the taste is disappointing. Can feel sourness well, but not enough. Also too mild
