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

Redbrown with good yellow foam. Nice flowery aroma with a hint of orange. Malty taste with a nice fruity taste. Strong bitter aftertaste that lasts somewhat. medium to light mouthfeel with good carbonate. Overall a great beer

Vivianos666 (2) - Bouchemaine, FRANCE - OCT 18, 2017 does not count
From the first sip one feels the sensation of drinking a cocktail of exotic fruit sparkling, the slight bitterness at the end of the mouth reminds us that she still has a body of amber beer. She is dressed with an orange color.

macca147 (387) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a dark red amber with a thin beige head. Aroma: roasted malt, toffee, mild cherries, mild citrus notes. Taste: roasted malt, toffee, mild citrus, peach flavours. Thin to medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mild bitterness that lingers on the palate. Slightly watery. Easy to drink, and tasty. A good beer, but a bit boring.

3.3
Erzengel (9348) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
Great fresh malty floral beginning. The bitterness is moderate, hints of floral hops with pine and resin there, nice malty floral bitter aftertaste. Light, easy to drink and deep.

3.6
Juks (949) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 7, 2017
Tap at BrewDog Tallinn. Clear dark amber, yellowish head stays. Aroma of hops, grass, sweet caramel, fruits. Taste is caramelly, fruity, some toffee. Citrussy hops in finish. Medium bodied, over average carbo. Nice one, sweetnes and hopiness well balanced.

3.8
Alengrin (5635) - BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2017
American style amber ale (or red IPA), a hit by BrewDog, tasted from tap at BrewDog Brussels. Pale yellowish beige, lacing, stable, more or less creamy head over a beautifully copper-hued ruddy amber beer. Aroma of frying sweet onions, sweat, wet tea leaves, butterscotch, pink grapefruit, dried tomato peel, paprika, marijuana, pine nuts. Clean fruitiness in the mouth, dried apricots and dried orange peel, nicely nutty maltiness, peanut- and slightly hazelnut-like with a sweeter caramelly core and a toasty ending but only relatively softly bittering, smooth and slick mouthfeel. Finishes in a pleasant combo of toasted bread and peanut maltiness with aromatic, oniony and lightly dried grapefruit-peel like, gently but adequately bittering hoppiness. Very quaffable, I could drink gallons of this.

3.6
gyhallmanti (626) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Pours a dark ambder colour with a medium white head. Aroma of hops, lemon zest, orange, pine, resin, malt. Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter with a moderate dry finish. Notes of malt, caramel, pine, resin, hops, citrus. Texture is sticky to oily, medium to light bodied with medium carbonation

3.5
martpez (282) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Nice malt notes followed by spicy hops. Suffers at the 5% strength making it a bit watery. Nice bit of pine and American hops the cascade and Simcoe particularly strong in the mix followed by a dryer bitterness with a complex twinge at the end. Very decent amber ale actually. Just missing that couple more degrees!

3.6
herinmary (61) - RUSSIA - SEP 14, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2017 Цвет очень насыщенный, тёмно медный. аромат карамельный солод. Во вкусе привычная кислинка с умеренной горечью, хвойные нотки, после чего провал во вкусе, а послевкусие неяркое с небольшой горчинкой.
