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."

Hidden_Pooch (356) - 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 (386) - 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 (549) - 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.

PorterPounder (5604) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2014
Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 11.5 oz bottle. Murky light brown pour, very thin white/grey clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some dates and molasses. Flavor leans to the sweet side with some raisins, doughy cake mix, a touch of prunes. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Average.

Wicked1983 (6) - - FEB 19, 2014 does not count
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!

cargo150 (627) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
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.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is biscuit and honey malt, earthy, herbal, and woody hops, and pear esters with light plums and sherry. Flavor is oxidation, sherry, light malt, hops, and bitterness with stone fruits and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
