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."

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2004
An amber beer with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is almost nonexisting - what is there is sweetness. The flavor is very dry with notes of coriander, caramel, and spices, though I can’t tell which. The flavor is very artificial.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Courtesy of Sammy. Clear, amber golden with a handsome, dense, off-white head leaving some laces. Aroma of malt and a whiff of metal. Medium-bodied, lightly sweetish malt with a touch of caramel and a dry, lightly hoppy finish. Solid craftmanship without being overly sophisticated. 310807

Bottled@SBWF2007. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppyness and some slight hints of earth. Flavour is quite much the same with some spicyness and acidic citrus fruits.

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

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.

Bottled@SBWF 2007
I guess that this is "Biere Blonde". Clear amber color, small white head. Light fruity malty nose. Fruity - peach and apricot are there at least. Nice pale ale, but would be better when unfiltered.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Bright copper-amber colour. Caramel malts and woody hops feature in the aroma. Moderate bitterness but little hop character to match. There is also quite a bit of caramelly, slightly toasty/earthy malt sweetness. The finish is more of the same - a pleasurable bitterness but too much caramelly malts for my taste. Well-made brew but pretty far from my ideal pale.
