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

hirigalzkar (3303) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle. Nice red color. Lousy head. Sweet hoppy aroma of grapefruit and strawberries. The taste is hoppy. Lots of grapefruit and some bitterness in the finish. Kind of light bodied beer. Refreshing and easy to drink.

fiulijn (21526) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2010
Tasting at Papsø’s
Amber color. Wonderful hop aroma, fruity, with sharp grapefruit and a hint of passion fruit. Fairly good caramel flavor and very good hopping; actually the beer is limited by having a too dry mouthfeel and finish, while the hopping is gorgeous.

I’ve had this cask and bottle, this is a bottle rate. The more I drink it, the more I like it. It’s the huge hop flavour and aroma but the mellow bitter that I love. It’s a cool beer with loads of fruity, floral flavour and a bready-berries malty body.

TBone (18671) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2010
Bottled (BB 12/2010, batch #454)
Deep red-amber color, small off-white head. Very hoppy juicy aroma: pine needles and mango. Starts quite watery, a bit sweet. Then quite hoppy, lots of pine needles and conifers. Plesantly hoppy, although quite simple. I like that this is only 5 %.

John_C (20) - USA - JAN 10, 2010
[33cl bottle, Home, 10/01/10] Wonderful floral bouquet aroma accompanied by hints of biscuity malts. Medium sweet with moderate bitterness. Smooth, crisp mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation. Superbly drinkable. A very good beer. If there was a touch more going on with the taste it would be an excellent beer.

3.4
Ungstrup (39108) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2010
Bottled. An amber beer with a off-white head. The aroma has notes of grapefruity hops, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, grapefruity hops, leading to a very bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.
