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."

In appearance, it could almost pass for a brown. Had a frothy off white head, and a bit of a pilsner aroma with slight malt. A pretty basic brew, no where near in quality to their oatmeal stout.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 A luxurious head of foam and thick lacing cover smooth caramel in delicate earthy, citrusy hop bitterness…Lemony tea leaves and oily biscuits… Subtle and balanced, bitter enough to be quenching…

Great copper color, malty nose, prime aftertaste/bite. A new favorite for me for sure!

Copper-like colour, big head but this one falls fast. Nice flowery hops aroma with a bit of honey. It’s got a nice perfumy hops flavour with a well balanced bitter finish. Since it’s 31 celsius today (42 if you consider humidity), it was really good to me.

Light amber color. The (delicate) hoppy aroma is also perfumy. The body is medium, not very malty, with just some malt/caramel flavor, a bit metallic at the end.

Nice head. Nice hop aroma. Very nice hop taste, not too much dry, very pleasant to drink. Also well hopped final, strong and aromatic.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2002
Floral, citrus, yeast aroma. Copper colour, creamy head, a few floaties. Beautiful toasted hops with fine bitterness. Nice mouthfeel, smooth and creamy. Impressive

Inhale of honey and hops. Taste fronts of honeyed malt quickly checked and mated with citrusy hops. Pretty cloudy gold in the glass with a nice head.

Wow, excellent Canadian beer. A very good brew, one that’d I’d drive back to Montreal for. Very smooth, with a wonderful clean fruity taste all the way through. Subtle, yet excellent.
