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."

This poured darker than I thought it would. However it was still an easy drinking pale ale. Pretty good all round.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2009 Équilibre entre le malt croustillant et la sécheresse du houblon. Des notes subtiles de poivre et moins subtiles d’agrume. Belle robe ambrée. Certainement l’une des bières embouteillées les plus rafraîchissantes du Québec en même temps qu’accessible à moins de deux minutes de marche si tant soit peu qu’on ait choisi de s’installer à deux minutes d’un Couche-Tard.

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.

341ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki). Brown with small whitish head. Aroma has hops and little citrus. Not bad but had so many better pale ales..

Poured from 11.5oz bottle into pint glass Aroma - Malty, fruity, yeasty. Slightest hint of citrusy hops Appearance - Dark golden amber with large, creamy white head. Considerable lacing on the glass. Flavor - Full malt flavor with fruit and yeast, followed by a very tasteful use of hops. This is delicious! Palate - Light to medium with a very crisp finish. Leaves you longing for the next sip. Overall - Very drinkable. This bridges the hop gap between British and American pale ale.

Illuminatus (92) - Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
Six-pack from the Beer Store. Pours nicely, a good creamy off-white head with an attractive orange body. Maltier and less hoppy than I expected from the aroma. A very good beer.

Dark copper in colour. Nice fluffy off-white head. Very good lacing. The smell is modestly hoppy, with a nice pine touch to it and loads of caramel maltiness. The flavour profile has some bitterness, graininess, and a bit of sweetness, with some citrus notes and biscuit-like maltiness. Light-to-medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel. A very solid performer overall. This is an excellent session ale.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Aroma has an apple, hay, earthiness to it. Pours a solid amber with head fully diminishing. Mouth feel has a hint of creaminess through to finish. Carbo is medium to lively. Enjoyable in nice long pulls. Good flavour, nice on its own. As others mentioned, got better as it went along. From a 5 X 2 pack.

Big fan of this stuff. On tap throughout Montreal, notably at Le Centre Sheraton where I drink it every time I visit. 341ml bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a beautiful clear amber color with a slight off-white head that dissolves shortly after pouring. A bit of trace lacing in the glass as it goes down. Smells strongly of hops and malts. Tastes strongly of hops, malt, and slight fruitiness in the aftertaste. Bitter. Delicious. Great beer.
