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.

Thanks to Joey Capps. Copper body, thin head. Slight toasted malt/herbal hop nose. Toasted up front with a nice herbal finish. As the beer warms the herbalness becomes almost medicinal.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Pours an amber colour with a copper hue. The head is big, lightly beige, has good retention and gives out foamy lacing. Malty nose with caramel and mild roasted ones. The taste is a little weird though. First sip is kind of gross, but then, it gets a bit better. Watery caramel malt with hints of nuts in the finish. Seems like they toned down the hop since the last reviews. I taste nothing there. Not one I would have again.

On tap. Light clear mahogany with off white head. Lots of malt, sweet, bit of plum. Moderate carbonation, mild body, malty and a bit of dough on the palate, bit cloying on the finish.

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.
