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."

Can bought at an LCBO in Toronto/Canada. Pours a copper clear color with a solid soapy white head. Aroma is mostly malt with some fruit in the back. Taste is malty, bitter fruits with a dry and balanced malt and bitter hops finish reming me of walnuts and sugaless forest fruits. This is a good beer, but I prefer the hoppy and less malty American pale ale.

Can. Pours copper with minimal head. Buttery aroma. Not a lot of flavor but some diacytel in there with minimal hop bite. Its okay but disappointing after having their stout.

Sweet caramel and vanilla aroma. Little to no head...formed into small blotches. Colour is a copper-red. Taste of roasted malt, nut and a hint of creme brule. Sweeter ale with little carbonation. Different from most pales...and i think its great that it is.

Bouteille 341ml. Odeur sucre de cereales, tres bien. En bouche, amertume et croustillant cerealier tres satisfaisant. Etanche la soif et le cot croustillan et amer nettoie le palais. Une belle biere de soif pleine de gout. Le 6 pack a 3$ de plus que la pabst blue ribbon vau GRANDEMENT la peine.

Une coiffe de mousse gnreuse se pose sur un liquide cuivr assez limpide. Un nez de crales croustillantes et de houblons plus terreux que fruits me laisse croire quelle sera agrable en bouche, mais un petit got de caramel brl vient gcher un peu la chose. Nempche que cest une bire de soif peu dispendieuse avec une franche amertume et une scheresse intressante.

can into glass. Not the Pale Ale for me. Pretty as all eff with a clear copper bod and magnificent lacing from a huge and pillowy off-white head. Yielded by the nose of this sexy critter are notes of light citrus, floral, cider, danky earthiness, brown bread and caramel. I just find it a bit sweet and vinous for my tastes. Quite soft carbonation and a tinge of grease in the mouthfeel. Not bad but not for me.

CAN. poured a dark orange ruby with thick white head. Smell from can was banana, in the glass got more banana & vanilla custard. Was hard to put a finger on the flavours, but I did get a malty biscuit taste that disappeared very quickly. Sourced Meat People (Pourhouse)
