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."

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2013 Bière orangée cuivrée, parfaitement limpide, faible effervescence, surmontée d’un bon col un peu beige bien résistant. Arômes de malt caramélisé, de céréale et de houblon floral, un peu de pain grillé et de malt fumé. En bouche, c’est moyennement pétillant, un peu mousseux, onctuosité intéressante, corps moyen. Bière au goût bien malté, malt fumée se mélangeant à un goût caramélisé, céréales grillées, houblon floral. L’amertume est bien présente en fin de bouche, mais tout de même légère.

stantheman (613) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2013
On tap at Bitter Tasting Room in downtown Vancouver. Served in a straight up stein. A very large pour in my world. A very nice pale ale with generous amounts of caramel. The alleged hops aren’t coming through for me, at least not yet.

mathieuc (1143) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2013
Can. Pours a clear golden with a fluffy white head that doesn’t stay for too long and leaves no lacing to speak of. Aroma is fruity with a few noble hops notes. Taste medium sweetness with a little bitterness that prevents it from becoming cloying. Mouthfeel is a bit thin with a correct amount of carbonation. Overall: drink this cool and relax, not much to ponder about there.
