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."

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 (116) - 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.

Freaky_tiki (793) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
Pours dark orange with a deep foamy cap that you’d expect to find on a cream ale. An almost non-existent nose. This is a smooth pale ale that stays far, far away from the west coast. Which is fine cuz this pre-dates the current west coast Ontario/Quebec fad phase. Decent, clean, balanced, well crafted. But kinda boring compared to what else you can reach for. Serve it to your future brother law when he comes over for the first family bbq.

Bouteille de 350 ml. Belle robe cuivrée avec mousse persistante. Arôme de malt prédominante. Saveur de malt accompagné d’une touche de houblon. Malt est prédominant en post-goût.
