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."

On tap, St. Lawrence beer show. I found this to be a little thinner than what I remember. The nose was certainly hoppy, but it had something else in it - I donít know, I came up with Windex, so maybe it was the condition of the keg. Anyway, the body is still very crisp and thin for an IPA, yet is quite balanced between malt and hops and turns out quite good. Again, a little to carbonated for my liking, so it may have been the serving condition of he beer that is affecting my rating, much like the apricot. Good offering though.

Nice, clear redish amber color with a fairly laced medium white head. Grassy and fruity hops aroma. The flavor is hoppy but not overly bitter and then fruity and manbe tangy. Bitter finish. Light body, slightly watery texture, lively carbonation. This used to be an amazing beer but now it is decent at best.

Dark gold color with no head. Just a slight grain aroma. More of the same in the taste, just a bit of grain. I didnít get any hops at all; it was more like a bland pale lager. Disappointing.

hopdog (10284) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and somewhat fruity. Tastes of citrus, flowers and fruity. I found the tastes to be on the watery side with a thin body. Ligthtly sweet and very lightly bitter.

(draught) hazy gold with smallish head. Floral hops aroma - not too strong. Mixed sweetish malt, some fruit, some hops in flavor.

Golden amber body with quick diminishing off white head. Aroma was spicy with sweet malts. Flavour was slightly sweet with a caramel like taste. Finish was slightly acidic and not enjoyable.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Best by 11/03. Classic APA color. This sample tastes a little old; slight metallic taste. Very sweet. Slight bitter character. An average American Pale Ale at best.

Slight hazed amber body frothy light tan head. The aroma is, well different, day-past-prime-peaches, some wood and an English hop aroma. The flavor is a milder version of the aroma, with an odd bitterness that is almost equivalent to tobacco bitterness. Body is smooth and medium. Long lasting aftertaste. Intersting but not my favorite.
