COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 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)

Bire blonde de 5 % dalcool. Cest une bire blonde dore. Elle possde un odorat de jus de fruits. Elle ne possde aucun col au versement. Elle possde une bonne amertume, notamment en finale et en arrire-got. Elle possde un aspect cralier houblonn en bouche. On sent une richesse enivrante.

Pours a clear light amber a nice head with great lacing. Taste is of sweet caramel malts blended nicely with floral hops, has sweetness at the start and ends with bitterness that hangs around.

Bouteille de 341ml au March des Brasseurs. Dune couleur cuivre qui se situe la frontire entre les blondes et les ambres elle est surmonte dune mousse blanche, crmeuse et assez durable. Arme de caramel (malt grill) et lgere pointe damertume trop faible pour quon dcide entre le pin ou les agrumes. Au palais cest crmeux, presque sirupeux, avec un got de caramel lgrement brl qui laisse place une fine amertume rsineuse assez raffraichissante. Une pale ale bien balance qui na rien envier aux bires commerciales du mme type.

473 mL can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent caramelish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes of fruity and bitter hops with a bit of grain in the background. Average on the palate. Not bad.
