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.

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

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.

On tap at Cest What. Pours a clear amber with minimal off white head. Aroma and taste are lightly malty, and sweet, not much hop. Pretty good, very drinkable.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - APR 16, 2009
Pours a amber orange with a thin shortly lived heads. The aroma is good, malty, some notes of bubble gum, burnt sugar, and maybe some orange peel? The flavour is decent, a light touch of hop upfront, the some straight forward malty, toffee sweetness, and then finishes with another touch of hops. A pretty straight forward, light, easy drinking beer. Nothing special, but tasty, goes good with spicy Chinese.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Appearance is copper to brown. Little or no head formation (in Unibroue Raftman tulip glass) Aroma is grainy/grassy with a faint hint of sweet malt. Tasted is muted. Slight malt and grainy taste, no hoppy bitterness at all. Watery and bland finish.

AleRider78 (682) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
341ml bottle. Pours a dark amber colour, with a bubbly foamy head, which goes away pretty quickly. Ok lacing. Aromas of malts and wheats. Pretty bitter taste, with some sweet malts and not much more. Tasted better from the bottle and slightly chilled at the time. This one has been in my fridge for a few months so not sure ehat to make of it. Enjoyed them previously from a 6 pack purchased in Toronto, but this bottle not as good.

AGAquino (667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
On tap at C’est What. Aroma of grains, and almost no hop bitter. light body, good carbonation. Lightly sweet flavours of biscuity malts and slight hop bitter. Well made, true to style.

AWS9 (646) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle. Some crispiness, mild biscuity malt backing and light hops. Certainly not a very interesting beer, but very drinkable.

Not a big fan of this brew It had some definitely nice caramels in the flavour, but it was definitely skunky and metallic on top of the roasted flavour.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 341 ml bottle - pours a clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of sweet grainy caramel malts.....very sweet actually. Some light herbal hops in there too. Layers of quality malt with some Saaz hop character and medium carbonation are all present. Really well balanced. Very smooth in the mouth. Refreshing and supremely drinkable - I could go through a 6 of these on a summer night no problem. A great session brew - nice to have an easy drinking lower alcohol beer that is a bit beefier than your generic pale lager. Good stuff.
