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

Amber to coper coloured ale. Sweet / bitter with lots of caramel, malt and some hops in the taste. You describe it as a malty amber ale, because of the caramel and bread tast. Its medium bodied, with a dry ending (use of pale ale malt?). The hops arent dominating but are present. Nice bitterness but in the end a little too astringent in my opinion. I bought it in Belgium maybe if you can drink it fresh, the hops will cause more balance and the bitterness will be less astringent.

Bouteille 33 cl. Belle robe ambre/rubis, mousse blanche. Nez fruit complexe o je trouve : prune, pche, abricot, orange, raisin ... mais aussi le caramel. Bouche douce, frache, houblonne, toujours sur le fruit et le caramel et finale amre. Superbe !

Is a beer perfectly executed but does not move me. The aroma is BrewDog, the alcohol is perfectly integrated, the feeling in palate is quite velvety and has a very good taste, but doesnt makes me feel nothing special.
