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

jlf278 (288) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Interesting beer, comes across like an IPA up front but without the bitter finish. Has almost no aftertaste. Interesting, but not amazing. Looks great, nice body and decent woodsy pine aroma.

MaltCaptain61 (9) - Pune, INDIA - MAR 28, 2017 does not count
herbs, very hoppy aroma, dark brown red in colour, light tan head, not very lasting, light hop bitterness (unlike what I expected), caramel notes and aftertaste, the light bitterness almost vanished instantly the beer is gulped down, no prominent sweetness, medium body, low carbonation on tongue, the finish is abrupt, but not in a bad way

Berlin, BrewdogPub, kran. Ar: bardzo dobrze, bardzo intensywny, swiezy, sporo lesnej zywicy, troche dobrych owocow tropikalnych, nieco dobrych nut kwiatowych, nieco slodowosci, ciekawie, soczyscie, bogato, wszystko czego oczekiwac po stylu. Wyg: ladny lekko czerwonawy, piana szybko redukuje do cieniutkiego ultradrobnoziaristego ringu. Sm: bardzo solidnie, wysycenie srednio-wysokie, soczyscie, bogato, troche slodko, ale dobra kontra goryczki z amerykanskich chmieli, wiele dobrych wspolgrajacych nut, swietny, bardzo pijalny. Pos: owocowosc, lekka chmielowosc, fajnie. Ov: bardzo dobre, soczyste, aromatyczne, lekkie, bardzo pijalne.

Bottle. Clear amber colour, small tan head. Aroma: caramel, resin, toffee, some butterscotch. Taste is light to medium sweet and bitter: caramel, nuts, dark fruits, oranges, toffee, light fruity tartness. Light to medium body, soft to average carbonation, dry finish, thin texture. OK.

Nonshaugen (556) - Fetsund, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2017
33 cl bottle, batch #160511. Clear, deep brownish amber, thin head, low carbonation. Aroma is dark fruits and a bit sweet caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is a bit oily and resiny, dry at the very end, not much carbonation. Taste is nutty and caramelly, a bit too sweet for my likings.
