COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saint Andre is made with a blend of five specialty malts imported from Belgium. These help to create a smooth, complex character which is balanced by a crisp hop flavour. The result is a remarkably drinkable beer that celebrates the best Europe has to offer. Lager in The Bohemian style. Note: Brewed by Doug Pengelly of Ste. Andre at the Stratford Brewing facility.

Tap at the Alex P Keaton, in London, Ont- Props goes out to Mark< Andrew, and Jeff for getting this one in! Deep amber pour marker with an off white creamy cap. Distinct malty sugary aroma with caramel and a well delivered hop aroma. Flavours are subtle and balanced. The right amount of sweet malt with a decent hops bitterness and caramel finish make this one a winner. Glad I got to try it, and thanks again to the guys at the Keaton for getting it in.

Odd weak scent that reminds me of Tomato soup. Rusty brown clear pour with negligable head. Watery taste but some aftertaste. Somewhat nutty and slightly warming. A bit of flower/grass like bitterness. Carbonation is very high. But of a sour aftertaste. Overall not bad and better then most Macrobrews, but nothing too special.

341ml brown bottle. Poured brassy orange, small rocky white clinging head. Nice malt aroma, faint sweetness. Flavour is toasty, woody malts, hops come through in the finish, fainty herbal and earthy, lending some dryness and a very restrained bitterenss.

It’s really St. Andre and not Ste. Good tasting beer with copper-red body. Rich colour. Taste of caramels.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2005
Bottle. Nice, solid amber in colour. Aroma features dark cherry and caramel, with a slight floral scent in the background. A little too fizzy on the palate. Good balance between malt and hops, but the taste is too bland, with no major flavour notes standing out. Very enjoyable on tap (earthy, excellent bitter finish) but practically lifeless in the bottle.

Draught at Beerbistro. Pours a clear amber-orange with a small fizzy white head -- I was quite surprised by how nice it looked. Mild aroma of roasted and caramel malts along with a touch of hops. The flavour is the biggest surprise of all: WOW! Quite possibly the best lager in Canada? It tasted that good too me. The flavour, like the aroma, was a great blend of sweet malts and light hops and, like HogTownHarry mentioned, with a bit more hops this would have been a perfect beer. Just fantastic.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Draught. at BeerBistro. It has been pointed out - at length - that the reason I don’t hate this is because it’s a "Vienna Lager", rather than "Pale Lager," which is what I - and many others also not quite so educated in true beer vernacular and styles - always assuming is inside when I/we see "lager". Which is therefore why it actually looks nice, doesn’t smell or taste like micturated barn scrapings, and there’s actually malt character to it. Anyway. It poured a clear deep copper-red with an average, mostly white head. Aroma was very mild, but medium-roasted malty, oaky, ferny and sweetish - there’s a bit of hop aroma, but it’s more sweet and woody. The taste is again mild malt, maple wood, not much in the way of hop or bitterness - starts and ends a bit sweet. No corn! Average to litght, slightly slick mouthfeel, not much linger. Needs more hops, but I’m surprised how much I liked it.

Bottle. Aroma of corn juice & malt extract. Hardly any head retention. Taste is thin bodied with some off flavors. Terrible.

Kinda crappy. it seems that there was some kind of attempt to make a nice lager, but this seems to fall a little short. bottom line: plain.
