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.

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.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2010
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 itís worth.

Fairly strong sweet malt aroma. Medium body, clean malty, sweet flavour. Good hop bitterness for balance. Nothing exceptional, but well worth a pint.

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 10, 2004
Rich golden color with fine white head. Slight skunky nose with some honey aromas. Light mouthfell with short malty finish. Flavors of malt, light hops, slight acidic note and little interest. Session yes, stunning no.

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.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle. Brownish amber pour. Soft tan head. Malty aroma is leafy and roasted caramel malt, a little bit of oak and grass. Nice creamy mouthfeel. A bit too sweet throughout, but nice malty backbone with a grassy clean finish. Not bad.

Pours a nice copper colour with a thin head. Beautifull caramel malt aroma with a touch of hops. Caramel and malt flavour with a nice bitterness. An overall good beer

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.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2007
341ml bottle - pours a deep golden, very dark actually, and maybe a bit closer to auburn than gold. Aroma is quite nice, with lots of malt and a bit of hoppiness in the background. Flavour is very crisp, with a nice sharp Saaz bite, a bit of sweet malt in the middle before a mild bitterness come forward in the finish. Otherwise, the mouthfeel is very thin, which is unfortunate because with a bit more body this would be greatly improved. Itís very drinkable...it goes down like water. Very clean, with no trace of adjunct or anything negative, and you can tell there in quality in here, but itís just not very interesting and much too thin. Still, decent, just not something Iíd likely pick up again.

I was expecting to taste some malt, but was very underwhelmed. Good mahogany colour and malty nose. The beer itself thought is pretty bland offering just a tantalising hint of potential. There was a bit of caramel sweetness, but that was it.
