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."

This is a good American Pale Ale. Hoppy, malty, and spicy flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

341ml brown bottle. I’ve had a lot of beers described as "Pale Ale", most were frighteningly bad. I almost didn’t buy this. but I trusted this brewery, and was well rewarded. Deep gold/coppery appearance. Full, fluffy white head. Fruity nose, nice hop bouquet. Begins with a fruity note, moves towards earthy malt, spicey and bitter hops blend beautifully throughout.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2005
Copper, with a creamy, clingy white head. Grainy, with a sweet touch of hops. If I could describe the taste with just one word, it would be balance. Just the perfect equilibrium of malt sweetness at first and hop bitterness in the end. Goes down creamy and smooth, and fits well in any occasion. In my dictionary, next to "Session Beer", there’s a picture of a St-Ambroise Pale Ale.

Bottled, thanks Rastacouere Deep golden. Aroma of fruit and hay. Fairly sweet with buttery, dense malt character and balanced bitterness. Solid and enjoyable.

SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - NOV 23, 2004
341 ml bottle. Small white head, fully diminishing, fair lacing. Amber body that seems of average density. Moderated hops aroma (fruity and a bit herbal at the same time). Flowers, citrus (orange) in the nose also as less predominant (more subtle) aroma. Light sweetness and mostly hops of moderated to heavy bitterness as initial flavors. Hops and even heavier hop bitterness (but not as hoppy as you may think or as I may like) as final flavor of average to long duration. Medium body, fizzy carbonation (too much to really appreciate it to its full potential). Still a decent beer but would benefits a lot more from less carbonation and a bit more complexity.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Bottle. Very happy to pick some of this up on the MTL trip. Beautiful pour, color and head. Nice dough aroma. Taste is malty and a bit astringent. Nice and hoppy, something I wasn’t expecting.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 The best beer widley avalible in Montreal. Spicy coper color like a pale ale should be. {most north americans think pale meens yellow, idiots} Lovley medium bitter ale, smokey, malt, hop, bitter. Highly carbonated for a bitter, large bubbles comprise thick head. tight nose. RUNS down the throat deffonetly a pint to be murderd in the hot sun.

Dorwart (2377) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Large, light tan head of fine bubbles. Settles slowly with good carbonation and decent lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. Little floral and a little citrus. Well balanced with a bit of caramel malt. Color is a nice amber. Well balanced flavor with pretty subdued hops. Expected more hops and bitterness. Finish is slightly dry with a mellow lingering bitterness. A decent beer but a little soft for a pale ale.

Medium amber pour, small white head. Hoppy and sweet fruit in the aroma. Very good hop flavor, nice bitterness in the finish.
