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."

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.

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.

deepeary (112) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
473 ml can from the LCBO. Canned two months ago. Pours clear dark amber colour with nice frothy off white head. Smells of herbal hops, some roasted malt notes, grainy/grassy. malt. Taste is toffee/caramel malt, Euro hops, balanced bitterness, some fruity sweetness mixed in there. Enjoyable lasting finish. Tasty and sessionable. Very nice English style pale ale. High flavour to abv ratio.

Storm_Shadow (107) - 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.
