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.

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.

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

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2004
A little carmel and yeasty aroma. Clear golden/amber color with good head lacing. Initial flavor is very feint. Slightly sweet, vanilla and malts with a stronger carmel finish. Quite fizzy at first. Smooths out well with a little breathing. Good lager.

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.

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

kseecs16 (1215) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Draught at the beer bistro. Copper amber with little head, reddish in color. Dry malty flavor with a crisp medium body. Can really smell the sweet crystal malts. Some lacing, great for the style.

DerWeg (1595) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2008
Cool-brewed version on draught at C’est What, Toronto. I found the original Guelph beer very good with an almost ale-like softness and easeful coating of the mouth. A recent six-pack (2006?) was like drinking mildly-flavored water. This pint was far better. I liked the texture, the slightly nutty/sweet flavor and the restrained hops. Good session beer.

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.

Draft at Old York. The aroma is roasted nuts and butter. The taste is very full and buttery. Nice!
