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."

Can. Pours copper with minimal head. Buttery aroma. Not a lot of flavor but some diacytel in there with minimal hop bite. It’s okay but disappointing after having their stout.

Sweet caramel and vanilla aroma. Little to no head...formed into small blotches. Colour is a copper-red. Taste of roasted malt, nut and a hint of creme brule. Sweeter ale with little carbonation. Different from most pales...and i think its great that it is.

Bouteille 341ml. Odeur sucrée de cereales, tres bien. En bouche, amertume et croustillant cerealier tres satisfaisant. Etanche la soif et le coté croustillan et amer nettoie le palais. Une belle biere de soif pleine de gout. Le 6 pack a 3$ de plus que la pabst blue ribbon vau GRANDEMENT la peine.

Une coiffe de mousse généreuse se pose sur un liquide cuivré assez limpide. Un nez de céréales croustillantes et de houblons plus terreux que fruités me laisse croire qu’elle sera agréable en bouche, mais un petit goût de caramel brûlé vient gâcher un peu la chose. N’empêche que c’est une bière de soif peu dispendieuse avec une franche amertume et une sécheresse intéressante.

budedou (510) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 15, 2015
Bière de couleur blonde avec un léger col mousseux blanc. Nez de caramel et de malt assez simple. En bouche c’est bien sucré, un peu trop, caramel,pain,céréales avec une finale peu amère. Une bière juste correct.

BrewGoblin (538) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
can into glass. Not the Pale Ale for me. Pretty as all eff with a clear copper bod and magnificent lacing from a huge and pillowy off-white head. Yielded by the nose of this sexy critter are notes of light citrus, floral, cider, danky earthiness, brown bread and caramel. I just find it a bit sweet and vinous for my tastes. Quite soft carbonation and a tinge of grease in the mouthfeel. Not bad but not for me.

CAN. poured a dark orange ruby with thick white head. Smell from can was banana, in the glass got more banana & vanilla custard. Was hard to put a finger on the flavours, but I did get a malty biscuit taste that disappeared very quickly. Sourced Meat People (Pourhouse)

Bière blonde de 5 % d’alcool. C’est une bière blonde dorée. Elle possède un odorat de jus de fruits. Elle ne possède aucun col au versement. Elle possède une bonne amertume, notamment en finale et en arrière-goût. Elle possède un aspect céréalier houblonné en bouche. On sent une richesse enivrante.
