St-Ambroise Pale Ale is the brewerys 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."

AleRider78 (956) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a pale amber colour with a nice thick creamy head. Nice lacing. Good balance of hops and malts in aroma. Flavours are pretty much the same as aromas, with a bit of grainy taste and thick maltiness. Sort of spicy mouthfeel and some tingling on the palate. Not bad, nothing outstanding for a pale.

Zlotta (2775) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2016
0.341 l bottle from Saveur Bire, bottled in September 2015. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, tan to white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity aroma of honey, strawberry jam, toffee and some peach. Sweetish, rather malty and slightly fruity tase of honey, toffee, marmelade and some peach, followed by a short, slightly bitter finish. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent, easily drinkable stuff.

Bierdimpfe (612) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Clear amber color with powerful delicate activity. Creamy white sparkly 1.5 finger head lasting around 10 minutes with strong legs. Aromas and flavors of grains, fruits, citrus, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Nice floral nose and delicious taste of sweet orange, lemon, apple and a fresh grain feel. Also slightly woody and grassy. Creamy full body with moderate carbonation. Strong and long finish ending with a slightly fruity but highly spicy bitter chalky and dry mouth coat. Overall a very good craft; complex and delicious crispy flavors with good freshness while having a little too much aggressive bitterness for my taste with tongue numbing spicy hops.

erickok (5754) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2016
Golden malts, giving a biscuit malt base aroma, and taste. Hops are English and perhaps some resin. Balanced recipe and enjoyable, and despite not being extreme at all and flavourful, its not one typical style that it reminds me of. English Pale Ale perhaps. Nice bitterness and good drinkable body. Very nice to drink, quality brew. (Bottle from Saveur Bire)

Marcius (434) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Amber color and minimal head. Medium hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter with a dry finish. Nice pale ale!

sulawang (1131) - - OCT 29, 2015
Visual: Pours clear salamander orange with a dissipating small head, a thin layer of micro retention, a mix of fast and slow loose streams. Nose: bright fruity orange, raspberry jam, sweet malts (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: crisp-watery, fizzy-tingly Mid-palate: short duration, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) toasted malt, bread-grainy, Finish: soft bitter hops, malty clean but short finish. Summary: Easily drinkable but nothing much here. Very clean albeit basic malt profile with good texture. Lacks depth and character. Those nose was good, but the taste is just average.
