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."

Bottle. Amber color with a off-white head and good lacing. A bit cloudy. Caramel malt and honey notes in the flavour. A medium-bodied with a very good hop bouquet.. The taste is malty with a nice hoppy bitterness. Long and a bit bitter after taste finish. Great balance. Solid and enjoyable. The majority of macros don’t come close to this. This is a ale that I have recently developed a taste for as an everyday beer.

Been tyring various beer styles for awhile, and this was the beer that made me decide to sign up to ratebeer and begin to track some of my favorite beers. Very tasty and always enjoyable beer.

bière cuivré ,belle mousse collante.nez de caramel,pain grillé,agrumes timides mais intéressant. belle onctuosité au palais, léger goût de malt fumé, c’est bien , j’apprécie l’aspect céréales et fruité sucré en fin de bouche légère amertume mais pas singulière pour une american pale ale,disons une pale ale qui a du caractères mais pas ’américaine’ dans le style quand même super bonne

341ml bottle. Poured with a large head. Excellent lacing all the way down the sides. For a Pale Ale the aroma was a little subdued, to the point where not much was evident. Nice bitter/hoppy taste but not as strong as i usually like. Over all this is a great beer that i usually buy when i need a beer on the deck after a run in the woods.

Medium amber pour, small white head. Hoppy and sweet fruit in the aroma. Very good hop flavor, nice bitterness in the finish.

Bejaaamin (115) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
light brown out of a bottle, large bubbly head. bright in hops, grassy, lightly cooked candy, some dark berries on the nose. good balance in the mouth, bright, but not too sharp, looooong lingering finish. flavor was a little on the mild side, but was still enjoyable.

Storm_Shadow (115) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber red with a small quickly fading white head. Aroma of malt and a touch of alcohol. Tastes sweet and malty but lacking in hops and bitterness, Quite a bland finish.

Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours amber with a large, rocky head. Clear with light carbonation, a medium body with a good little bite due to the hops. In fact my entire impression is of a lightly hoppy, very drinkable ale. Thirst-quenching while not distracting by its character. Tres bien:)

Flamojune (113) - Ville de Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2008
Ne vous fiez pas au nom français; ce n’ est pas une blonde mais bien une pale ale. De couleur cuivrée tirant sur le rouge. Tres houblonnée, pleine de gout. Pas une coche au dessus mais en vaut pleinement la dégustation.

Poured golden colour with the perfect head. Just the sweet side of balanced.
