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.

Draught at Cíest What, Toronto
Amber color; creamy head. Very light aroma. Some caramel flavor, light, but too dry; there is a light breadish note and maybe some metal; correct bitterness.
Boring.

This beer has moved production to Cool Beer, and it shows. The aroma, which was once excellent, is average, with only hints of caramel and sweet nutty malts. The body is thinner and more metallic. The finish is lifeless and the malt complexity muted - it was a subtle beer before but now those subtleties don't exist. Once a showpiece lager, it has fallen into mediocrity.

Malty, and therefore popular among my friends. More noticeable malty flavour with breads and spicy food. Very easy drinkability.

Tap at Beer Bistro. Rich copper-coloured beer with a thick creamy off-white head. Softly toasted malt aroma over a very clean base. A whiff of toast and soft floral hops as well. Flavour is very well-balanced. Soft maltiness with a crisp, clean finish. Lingering breadiness. Itís a very well-made, quaffable take on this style.

Cheesy yeast speech with salty lingo...The lack of substance in the hops is copied by the sweetness of a filet of peach...Another one of those diving board beers, that could land a few tasters to better things...

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2005 TFOB 2005. Draft. Amber brown, small white head. Toasted malt and muted citrus in the aroma. Pleasant bitterness, some citrusy hopes over malt. Less of the malt and caramel flavours that i remember/associate with it. Average palate. 5-6/3/6/3/13<P> Toronto Festival of Beer 2001 - Nice vienna Lager. Sweetly complex, easy to drink. 7/3/7/3/14

On tap at the Beer Bistro in Toronto. Rich amber color, with lots of red, lovely. Rich, nutty aroma with fruit and lots of caramel. Flavor very nutty and grainy, with milk, cherries, caramel, and toffee. Dryish finish but the malt keeps working. Nice.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Draught. at BeerBistro. It has been pointed out - at length - that the reason I donít hate this is because itís 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, doesnít smell or taste like micturated barn scrapings, and thereís 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 - thereís a bit of hop aroma, but itís 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 Iím surprised how much I liked it.
