It is a good everyday beer. Good bitter hop taste but a tiny metallic ending.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light fruit and light caramel nose. Low carbonation typical of British type ale. Off white frothy head floating on a pale amber beer. Caramel flavour fills mouth. Low hop bittering, needs more bitter and hop flavour - not American, more of British floral hops. Rich body. Overall a nice beer but is understated in presentation. Should be classified as a Briitish Ale, it is not an American Pale Ale.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 (Re-rate; I learned about beer)
Pours brilliant copper with a smooth beige head, leaving intricate lacing. Grassy/spicy hops and medium crystal malt in the aroma. Caramel sweetness well balanced by smooth and firm bitterness, with grapefruity hop accents. Nice fruitiness. Smooth, crisp, and usually enjoyable (though not entirely consistent). My favourite Canadian APA.

Pours an amber orange with a large rocky head. Aroma of malt and grass: very fresh. Nice, long lasting bitter finish. This is a really nice, well balance ale.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Poured a clear copper colour with a thick creamy 1.25" head. The foam was long lasting, left a 1/8" cap and the lacing was pretty good. Overall it looked pretty damn good. Smells delicious. Aroma of bread, toasted cereals, herbs and hops. For the flavour the hops hit pretty quick. Also caramel and a hint of toasts and some mild tangy fruits are also present. I found the balance was just a tad off (not sweet enough maybe?) but it wasnít bad. Good carbonation and smooth with dry finish. Even felt a bit heavy. I could drink a couple but not too many. BiŤre blonde? Not what I was expecting but still it was a good brew.

341 ml. Blonde orangée avec un doigt de mousse. Belles bulles. Superbe. Odeur céréales, caramel. Belle harmonie de sucré malt et d'amertume en finale. Rien de puissant mais bonne blonde à 5%.

St. Ambroise Pale Ale - This is a pretty mediocre pale ale by American standards. Not very memorable.

For a pale, itís really dark, and thatís an understatement. Good drinking ale. Sweet, with a little fruit.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 Golden colour with a medium head. Smells fresh and hoppy. Fresh tasting with a really nice malt balance. I find this beer really easy to drink and it could be a session beer for the night. Really impressed and will def buy more.
