COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, series
This one off special brew was brewed, bottled and labelled by hand in a limited run of only 552 bottles, as always, at one time by one bloke. Only the best malt and the finest whole hops are used; no tins of extracts or flavourings, just natural goodness. This beer, like all St Andrews Brewing Co beers, is brewed with passion to be drunk with passion. Enjoy, Bob. Taking inspiration from one of my favourite songs to brew to, and my baby girls Isla’s favourite song to dance to (Toots And The Maytals ’54-46 That’s My Number’), the 54-46 Series is a range of limited edition guest beers brewed with 54% Pale Malt and and 46% Wheat. Each beer is single-hopped to allow the full flavours of the hop to shine through. Pacific Gem: High Alpha New Zealand hop. Berry and vanilla flavours

Beersiveknown (3832) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle at home from alesela
hazy pale blonde, a little insipid in the flavour department, herbal bitterness and malt to balance, thinnish body, low caronation, no hop punch in the nose but perhaps a little old.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle, Cave, Glasgow. Hazy yellowish gold pour with a fair sized white head. Notes of spice and yeast in the hooter. Thinnish flavour with similar character and vague citrus. Hops not really shining here. Dry bitter finish. Drinkable but ultimately forgettable.

Scopey (8813) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours pale gold with a medium white head. The nose is hay, dough, toast, spice and straw. The taste is crisp, bitter-sweet, doughy, grainy, spice, straw and light citrus with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not a whole lot going on. OK.

allmyvinyl (6043) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours pale gold with a big white head, quite high carbonation keeps it there. Aromas are yeast, clove, vanilla and wheat. Taste has quite a big bitterness, but then this is a high alpha hop. Creamy texture, light body, bitter finish, moving towards being a bit soapy at the end... Good overall.

zimbo (753) - SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Via cask at a local beer festival. Good hop nose with length and complexity. Similar story with the body and to a degree, the taste. Could do with more substance and presence but still a very good and pure introduction to the society.

Lonick (790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle, pours golden. Quite a big head with a yeasty/fruit bread or banana bread nose. Quite hoppy in the mouth, simple, not a great deal going on, nice but not great.

JohnRMurdoch (3742) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2013
330ml bottle shared with mr_h. Hazy yellow amber, reasonable head. Resin wheat aroma. Yeasty wheat lemon flavour. Sour lemon aftertaste. OK but nothing special.

330ml bottle from Cornelius, Edinburgh - clear golden yellow, small thin white head, resinous fruity aroma, berry fruits, possible hint of vanilla, high carbonation, dry, bitter finish
