Saint Andre-Bohemian-Style Lager

Saint Andre Lager is a solid little brew from Toronto.  It is sold in 341mL bottles and clocks in at 4.6%.  It pours a snazzy clear amber colour and has very little head.  The aroma is quite sweet with notes of toffee or caramel.
For a beer with so little alcohol content, the flavour is surprisingly malty.  Additionally, there is a slight smokiness and a sweet toffee taste.  It finishes sweetly, again with a hint of toffee.

I was surprised to learn that this brew is produced by the Cool Brewing Co., whose namesake beer is not one of my favorites.  Still, they definitely got something right with this one.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
