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.

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.

This beer has moved production to Cool Beer, and it shows. The aroma, which was once excellent, is average, with only hints of caramel and sweet nutty malts. The body is thinner and more metallic. The finish is lifeless and the malt complexity muted - it was a subtle beer before but now those subtleties don't exist. Once a showpiece lager, it has fallen into mediocrity.

Malty, and therefore popular among my friends. More noticeable malty flavour with breads and spicy food. Very easy drinkability.

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

On tap at the Beer Bistro in Toronto. Rich amber color, with lots of red, lovely. Rich, nutty aroma with fruit and lots of caramel. Flavor very nutty and grainy, with milk, cherries, caramel, and toffee. Dryish finish but the malt keeps working. Nice.

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...

Tap at Beer Bistro. Rich copper-coloured beer with a thick creamy off-white head. Softly toasted malt aroma over a very clean base. A whiff of toast and soft floral hops as well. Flavour is very well-balanced. Soft maltiness with a crisp, clean finish. Lingering breadiness. It’s a very well-made, quaffable take on this style.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 [202-20070206] Tap @ C’est What (Toronto, ON). Medium yeast in aroma. Rich red amber body with small bubbles along the outer rim and a medium-big creamy off-white head. Flavour continues grainy yeast bread and shows some alcohol content. Medium body, gravelly feel. Good togetherness, good to repeat (great pairing with fries). Ɩ/4/6/3/13) 3.2

[2477B-20090829] Bottle sample. Potato chip salty grains and pepper aroma. Slightly hazy, orange amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. More generic grains and watery malt flavour. Watery medium body. Fair. Ɩ/3/6/3/13) 3.1
(Golden Taps ’09 @ beerbistro; Toronto, ON)

Draught at Beerbistro. Pours a clear amber-orange with a small fizzy white head -- I was quite surprised by how nice it looked. Mild aroma of roasted and caramel malts along with a touch of hops. The flavour is the biggest surprise of all: WOW! Quite possibly the best lager in Canada? It tasted that good too me. The flavour, like the aroma, was a great blend of sweet malts and light hops and, like HogTownHarry mentioned, with a bit more hops this would have been a perfect beer. Just fantastic.
