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."

gripweed57 (2723) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2017
From old tasting notes. Bright Amber orange color. Big creamy beige head. Spicy hop aroma. Deliciously soft fruity malt flavor. Plenty of hops from start to finish. Nice toasted malt backdrop. Long dry hop finish. Well balanced.

wombat23 (1621) - Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Shared 473ml can. Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is jolly rancher, malt, dark bread, and just a dash of sour milk.

darbeer75 (929) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Aroma: maltier than expected; some apple juice and a little hand lotion; Appearance: clear amber pour with thin white head that disappears quickly; Taste: starts malty and ends with pleasant hoppy/cereal finish; kind of odd; Palate: light-medium body with medium finish; Overall: okay but not quite working for me.

the sauger (93) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2017
Canette de 473 ml. Arôme de noix grillés et de fleurs. Goût également de noix grillés avec des notes peu sucré mais un peu fruité. Bonne bière à boire sur la terrasse l’été.

Tessic (1176) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2017
This pale ale poured a deep amber colour with a white, creamy head. Minimal lacing. Scents include fruit juice, honey and cream. First swig was a little thin with nice malt flavours. Finish was very nice with light hoppiness. Very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Canned. Clear brown body, beige head. The aroma is molasses, sweet grass and peach. The taste is balanced and highly fruity. Quite bland but professional.

mozbee (12) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle from any local stores. I love the taste of that beer. This is my my go-to beer of choice with a light taste (and alcohol), a nice little bitter presence. Nothing fancy, just a great well balanced simple ale.

2.9
ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Pours amber orange with a thin white head. Aroma is carmel malt and bread. Carmel, cereal, and roasted malt flavours with a slight bitter. Not bad.
