St. Andrews is a light red amber with an interesting white sandy looking head. There are aromas of honey, tea and malt, very pleasant. A very thin initially light ale taste quickly rounds out with a nice hop bite. High carbonation inhibits the taste at first making it very foamy. The overall lightness stays throughout the whole experience but the tastes that come along are superb. A wildflower honey balance directed toward a floral hops are backed up with a sweet caramel malt.
Overall, this is an easy drinking scotch ale with wonderful flavors. On the light side, I think it's what a scotch ale named for a golf course should be. It's light with waves of floral and honey and I have no idea how they got the sandy look to the head but it certainly looks like a St. Andrews sand trap!
