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."

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2003
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.

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.

Coulda swore it was a blond, but wow I had a lot to drink this weekend so whatever. Golden amber. Aroma is very light, bread, grass, etc etc. Lighter body, fairly well balanced.

Pours a clear copper with a light amount of white head. Aroma of hops and citrus (peach). Favor definitely fruit and hops with hints of creamy malts. Body is light with fair carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a pale off-white head that lasts for a good amount of time. The aroma is a bread-y dry with some sweet caramel. The hops seem not to be that noticeable. Malts are pretty dominant. The flavour is a bit funky. Orange and orange rind are in the initial flavour. As the flavour progresses, the caramel notes come through as well as that nice breadiness. Some light spices show itself more towards the finish. This is all fine, though, some funkiness begins to arise from here. Towards the back of the tongue, there’s a weird soap-like flavour to it and a light bitterness. I like bitterness, but I think the other flavours make even the lightest of bitterness somewhat unpleasant. I’m not too fond of this brew.

This copper ale poured with a substantial beige head that lasted a while. The flavor is rather thin, but has some nice tasting caramel malt and a slightly bitter finish.

Butter’s 4th cellar reduction. Clear amber with a nice white head. Sweet orange citrus aroma but a let down as far as taste goes. Could have been a little hoppier,
