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."

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 don’t 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 didn’t get any hops at all; it was more like a bland pale lager. Disappointing.

hopdog (11274) - 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.

Bottle. A amber beer with a big white head. The aroma is sweet malty with grass hop nots, the taste is sweet caramel with citrus and grass, high carbonation in a medium body with a dry, hop finish.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 Not a Land Lord bitter, not Full Moon but you could do worse. Page 391 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 199 of his 500 Classic Brew to go.

(on botle)had two directly from the ottle, so the appearence ws hard to get. The hoppy aroma an the bright bubbles was a delight tho´ and the fresh-cut-lawn/caramel finish was a treat.
