COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St-Ambroise Pale Ale is the brewery's flagship beer. Introduced in February 1989, it is a hoppy, amber, full-flavoured ale. In The Simon and Schuster Pocket Guide To Beer , beer critic Michael Jackson gave it three stars and described it as: "An outstanding ale... amber-red, clean and appetizing, with a very good hop character, from its bouquet to its long finish. Hoppy, fruity, and tasty all the way through."

mjakopa (205) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a lighter orange with medium head. Aroma is quite hoppy and fruity. Taste is light in carbonation, a hoppier body and malty aftertaste, but generally quite light. A very balanced summer ale.

Apparence: D’une couleur jaune dorée translucide, elle est coiffée d’une bonne mousse légère d’une bonne durée. Effervescence moyenne avec des bulles de petite taille. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes florales et de fraîcheurs qui dominent. Saveurs: Très rafraichissant, très doux en bouche. C’est le côté florale qui se développe en premier lieu. L’amertume prend du temps à se manifester, mais la patience rapporte. Pratiquement aucune effervescence. Fiche technique : Style: American Pale Ale Format: 473 ml Taux d’alcool : 5%

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. This taste different to me than most pale ale. Aroma is more of spices and grass. Tastes of caramel, fruits, herbs. I don’t notice much hop flavours going on, but it is not a bad thing. A nice medium body with little bitterness. An interesting pale ale.

jksipa (292) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle from the Beer Store. Deep clear amber with a generous off-white head that slowly fades and leaves some slight lace. Nose is sweet toffee and grains with some light floral and fruity notes. Sweet fruit start with apple and pear with some bitter citrus appearing in the middle. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation and a quite long finish. Enjoyable.

Jado (493) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a deep but clear orange-amber with a small white head and gentle carbonation. Aromas of baked apple, raisin, flowers and a hint of orange zest. Taste is light fruit at the start before a crisp citrus hit in the mid-palate. Richer notes of dried fruit, cooked apple, pear and spice at the substantial back end. Lightly spicy aftertaste. Good stuff.
