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."

A friend brought this out from Toronto. Poured into a mug. Color is dark orange, can see through the beer. Aroma is strong, could smell it as I poured the beer. Taste is not strong however but pleasant. Smooth beer, not much aftertaste. Middle of the road Pale.

Decent, floral aroma, hops are very present initially and then slowly melds into a nutty earthy tree bark malt character. Some fruit is also present in the flavor, and has a nice clean flavor. I just wish it was a little bigger, but very well done.

ELPADRINO (70) - The Woodlands, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2006
Pours light bronze with quarter inch white head. Aroma is light floral hops. Taste is sweet hops with a sour aftertaste. Smooth, long lasting taste. Could use a bit more punch, but overall good.

Ok this is my second Canadian "American Pale" provided by HogTownHarry and Im really starting to think theyve got it going on up in Canada. This one is just as good...maybe better than the previous. Very West coast American attitude in this brew, with a little taste of an english style thrown in too. Aroma was finished with floral hops and taste was very nice straight up piney hops and some very slight citrus hop notes. Man they nailed this one. Ive got to head to quebec now and get a few more of these :)

Clear copper with a fluffy honey colored head. Has some strange little floaters. Fruity, hoppy, buttery aroma. Clean, lightly buttery flavor with some pear and spicy hops. Very well balanced and easy to drink. Strikes me as more of a British Pale Ale.

341 ml bottle. Pours a deep golden amber with a moderate foamy head that lasted through most of the glass. Light, grassy aroma. Initial flavor is fruity and slightly sweet. An excessive dry mouthfeel then kicks in, which I think robs this brew of some of its flavor.

Bottle Qu est que ce? The beer pours amber golden with a smallish head. Aroam is non-descript maybe a touch fruity. Flavor is fairly watery, not much substance. It is not quite clear what dominates here, but contary to some other rates I did not have the feeling that it was carbonated too much or too dry. However something was missing.

The lasting impression I get from this beer is that is a little bit too sweet. I agree with previous poster that this beer is too carbonated and dry for the mouth, so the palate feels deprived after taking a swing of this. The flavor is pretty good, but it is a shame that the initial taste only lasts for a moment, then disappears. Some hops comes through to mask the sweetness as the beer warms up, but there are definitely some holes in this brew. After a while this start to grow on you, so maybe these guys know what they are doing after all.

Pours a carmel gold with a big white head. Smells a bit creamy and malty...some acidity aswell. Flavor is fairly malty and a bit citrusy sweet...some decent hop bitterness to round out the end of it. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and dry.

Trs bonne bonne ale la fois lgre et amre. Un arome de cral frais et un petit got de fruit.
