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."

Tricker (341) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
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.

Pours a clear light amber a nice head with great lacing. Taste is of sweet caramel malts blended nicely with floral hops, has sweetness at the start and ends with bitterness that hangs around.

bière cuivré ,belle mousse collante.nez de caramel,pain grillé,agrumes timides mais intéressant. belle onctuosité au palais, léger goût de malt fumé, c’est bien , j’apprécie l’aspect céréales et fruité sucré en fin de bouche légère amertume mais pas singulière pour une american pale ale,disons une pale ale qui a du caractères mais pas ’américaine’ dans le style quand même super bonne

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. D’une couleur cuivrée qui se situe à la frontière entre les blondes et les ambrées elle est surmontée d’une mousse blanche, crémeuse et assez durable. Arôme de caramel (malt grillé) et légere pointe d’amertume trop faible pour qu’on décide entre le pin ou les agrumes. Au palais c’est crémeux, presque sirupeux, avec un goût de caramel légèrement brûlé qui laisse place à une fine amertume résineuse assez raffraichissante. Une pale ale bien balancée qui n’a rien à envier aux bières commerciales du même type.

473 mL can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent caramelish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes of fruity and bitter hops with a bit of grain in the background. Average on the palate. Not bad.

341ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Amber/copper body with a thin off-white head. Pine, nuts and some caramel on the nose. Hops and nuts initially with roasted/ burnt flavor of malt lingers into the finish. Elevated pervieved bitterness. Alcohol is normal, very sessionable.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours crystal clear copper with an amber head. Sweet caramel and biscuity malt. Definitely more.of a malty pale ale. Some nuts. Some earthy and piney aromas. An okay pale. Quite sessionable.
