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."

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

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 The best beer widley avalible in Montreal. Spicy coper color like a pale ale should be. {most north americans think pale meens yellow, idiots} Lovley medium bitter ale, smokey, malt, hop, bitter. Highly carbonated for a bitter, large bubbles comprise thick head. tight nose. RUNS down the throat deffonetly a pint to be murderd in the hot sun.

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.

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

Clear amber color with powerful delicate activity. Creamy white sparkly 1.5 finger head lasting around 10 minutes with strong legs. Aromas and flavors of grains, fruits, citrus, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Nice floral nose and delicious taste of sweet orange, lemon, apple and a fresh grain feel. Also slightly woody and grassy. Creamy full body with moderate carbonation. Strong and long finish ending with a slightly fruity but highly spicy bitter chalky and dry mouth coat. Overall a very good craft; complex and delicious crispy flavors with good freshness while having a little too much aggressive bitterness for my taste with tongue numbing spicy hops.

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

FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2008
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.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
Pours orange/copper, slightly cloudy with a nice frothy head. Aroma is citrus fruits (Lemon and orange rind, a bit of grapefruit), mild yeast and malt. Flavours are very nice, citrus fruits, yeast and a bit of bitterness at first but a fairly heavy finish. Mouthfeel is quite creamy. Very refreshing

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle. Light brown color, bubble and thin white head, fully lasting and nice lacings. Hops and yeast aroma. Explosion of malt, cereal and fruits. Light alcohol in the finish, watery texture (just a little) and light to medium bodied. Nice Pale Ale. Bière de couleur brun pale avec des bulles dans sa robe et un mince collet blanc qui perdure jusqu’à la fin et qui colle bien au verre. Au goût, le malt est frappant à la 1ere gorgée, go¸ut également de céréal et de fruits. Texture un peu acqueuse, corps léger à médium, leger fini d’alcool. Très bonne Pale Ale.
