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."

Picked up a taster pack this week as I’m a huge fan of their oatmeal stout, and I thought I should try their others. Poured from bottle. Got a one finger white head that quickly dropped off. Nice copper amber colour. Aroma is a pleasant floral with hints of citrus. Lower carbination is great for a nice balance. Tastes of a nice blend of biscuit and caramel. Very nice beer!

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 amère. Une bière correct.

473 mL can. Pours a very light amber with a thick frothy white head and lots of lace. Aromas of biscuity malt, assorted spices, pine, citrus zest and candlewax. Moderate to full bodied, average plus carbonation. Bready sweetness with a nice bitter backbone and old world hoppy finish. Sticky on the palate. Very approachable.

Storm_Shadow (106) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber red with a small quickly fading white head. Aroma of malt and a touch of alcohol. Tastes sweet and malty but lacking in hops and bitterness, Quite a bland finish.
