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."

Got this in trade courtesy of korguy123. 341 ML into a standard pint glass. Poured a golden amber with a two-finger head which dissapted rapidly to a coating. Nose has some floral elements up front, as well as some citrus, caramel and biscuit. Taste is slightly bitter with notes of coriander and orange, held up by the biscuity malt. There are some citrus hops but they aren’t forward. Finish is slightly bitter and sticky. Carbonation is certainly visible but not felt. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium. A decent APA but not my favorite style, for sure.

Gorgeous. Just about everything I had last night was! Poured darker than I expected for a pale ale. Small head, and as good as I expected from my past experience with St. Ambroise. . The flavour comprised of sweet ripe fruits and a very nice bitterness lingered in the aftertaste. Best Pale I have had yet.

Bottle from the LCBO. Amber pour with a small white head. Fresh hops and fruit aroma. Great hops taste and a lingering finish. Pleasant.

Is it a red or a pale? I dunno but it kicks ass. Beautiful example of why microbrewing rules.

On tap, pours a amber to orange hue with a light head. On the nose caramel, ginger, earthy hops. Slightly bitter start, finishes sweet and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stepping up with a light tan hue, here’s not much carbonation, very little head, and what little there is quickly takes a hike. I can detect a light smell of nutmeg and cinnamon. A burnt caramel sensation is part of the first wave and then it exits unceremoniously with a little bit of hops and a slightly watery acidic finish. The caramel sweetness just seems out of whack with the rest. Somebody, please find this beer a head.

473 mL can. An excellent pale ale. Pours a light brown with a modest head that dissipates quickly. Hoppy aroma. Nicely balanced on the tongue. Nice long slightly bitter finish. Really well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. 12 fl. oz. A light copper color with an off-white colored head. Nice longevity and decent lacing. Aromas of hops, light citrus, bread, and caramel malt. Light to medium bodied with fairly dry texture. Flavor is lightly sweet at first with a hoppy bitter middle and a lingering, dry, bitter end. The flavor is a little weak and never seems to fully develop, but I like this beer.
