3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ beerbistro: THIS is made by Cool? The same purveyors of such swill as Millennium Buzz? Colour me shocked. Poured a nice amber-orange with a generous foam head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, a light complexity that made it difficult to pick out all that’s happening. Flavour is far superior to anything I’ve had from this brewer with an excellent balance of sweet malts and wonderful, bitter hops. Completely surprised by this one, thumbs up.

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

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with an OK off white head. Grainy, cereal and hay aromas, no distinguishable hop aroma. Body is light-medium with some hop flavour and bitterness, however the malt takes the lead with a complex (for a lager) structure of sweetness, bread, grain and some nutty notes on the palate. Finish is semi-dry with the sweetness and additional flavours of the malts leading right through with a touch of refreshing bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Nice malty lager for what it’s worth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fairly strong sweet malt aroma. Medium body, clean malty, sweet flavour. Good hop bitterness for balance. Nothing exceptional, but well worth a pint.
