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.

Cheesy yeast speech with salty lingo...The lack of substance in the hops is copied by the sweetness of a filet of peach...Another one of those diving board beers, that could land a few tasters to better things...

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.

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.

I tried this beer on January 18, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto. The beer poured a translucent red with a thin white head which disappears quickly. The aroma is malty and grassy. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with low carbonation. The flavour was slightly sweet, a little malt, and a lot of grass!

AWS9 (468) - 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.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours gold/amber, thin but persistent off-white head, that reduces to a thin ring, lacing is spotty to nonexistent. Nose is toffee, crystal malt, fruit, really just those three, trying to find more here, but its just not there. Flavors of bread, noble hops, lemon, crystal malt/caramel, light fruit, rather sticky, slightly sour doughy finish. I’d have another one if you offered it to me.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Amber color; creamy head. Very light aroma. Some caramel flavor, light, but too dry; there is a light breadish note and maybe some metal; correct bitterness.
Boring.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Draught @ Cest What. Clear, copper with very thick beige head. Diacetyl, some caramel malt aromas. Sour flavors and a tiny bit of bread character. Quite sweet overall. Soft mouthfeel. Not entirely pleasant...
