Draft @ Beer Bistro, Toronto. Pours a amber color. Pretty simple beer but a nice session beer. Smooth drinking malty offering. Very slight bitterness. Little light in the body department but a decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Draught @ Cest What. Clear, copper with very thick beige head. Diacetyl, some caramel malt aromas. Sour flavors and a tiny bit of bread character. Quite sweet overall. Soft mouthfeel. Not entirely pleasant...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught) At the Capital City Beer Festival 2004 in Ottawa. Medium, creamy, and highly carbonated head with a deep amber body. Nose is of slight lactic. Milky-malt flavour with a mildly hopped undertone. Above average. One question: Why the sole beer?

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Saint Andre Beer 4.6% Toasty malts are joined by bready munich, some caramel and fairly spicy, crisp, herbal hops in the nose along with a hint of butterscotch. Clear deep amber-copper coloured body is topped by a low white head that recedes to partial cover. Caramel malt flavour stands out above a lightly toasty character with fairly apparent herbal hops that are lightly spicy in nature along with moderate bitterness. Malt sweetness lingers in the lightly fruity aftertaste. Medium light body with sharp, pointy, aggressive carbonation that does not last throughout. Can’t really agree that this is close to being either a vienna lager or a bohemian lager as the commercial description suggests, but it is entirely drinkable. Stem glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Gift, Mar-06). Thanks, Seb!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
En fût au C’est What. Une robe un peu pâle. Un petit col mousseux. Des arômes simples de caramel et des élans de houblons feuillus. Des saveurs dans lesquelles le caramel écrase les aspirations houblonnées. Une bouche de moyenne intensité avec un mince apport de bulles. Une texture qui est presque aqueuse. Une finale qui n’est pas propre. Ordinaire.
