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."

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and somewhat fruity. Tastes of citrus, flowers and fruity. I found the tastes to be on the watery side with a thin body. Ligthtly sweet and very lightly bitter.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Nice looking ale with a great aroma - fruity and hoppy. Very easy drinking - almost disturbingly so. Clean, slightly sweet with a strong character. A perfect summer brew. How I missed this one is a mystery to me. I will be putting this on my (ever growing) list of regulars.

asheft (3029) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2005
[bottle] Almost clear orange-copper with a nice flanel blanket cover that clings to the glass. Fruity hops and raisiny caramel meld to form a very nice aroma that has just a touch of diacetyl. Citrus and dried fruit flavour in perfect balance with caramel and malt, ending with a pleasant, almost crisp bitterness, the fruit transcending it all. Medium body with medium carbonation.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2005
Bottled. Lovely fruits aroma with apricot, apple and citrus. Oker/amber color, off-white head, good lace. Light sweet, fruity, well hopped, bitter finish. Although just 5% ABV still a little warming.

blankboy (7425) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2005 Bottle. Pours a sparkling amber-orange with an average size white head. Very nice colour but not enough head. Aroma of sweet malt, light hops, fruit and a touch of yeast. Flavour: Oh yeah! This is wonderful. I keep forgetting how great this beer is. Mildly sweet, light hops, citrus, lively carbonation, bitter finish. This is a top-notch ale and one of Canadas best.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2005 Pours medium gold with thin white head. Aroma is sweet ripe peach and hoppy. Slightly bready. Taste is fruity with a richness and hoppy finish. One of the finest APAs Ive ever tried.

Thanks go to my man up north, beerhugger, for this one! It took me awhile to find this stuff in the database. "Wheres the belgian blonde?" It cant be a pale ale...wha? it is? OK.... Clear, dark golden pour with a beady, thick head. Great aromas, with a sweet malty touch that reminds me of honey and peaches. Just the slightest bit hoppy. Beautifully delicate on the palate, with hints of fruit, fresh dough, flowers, and honey. Malty, lingering finish. This would be a great summer session beer. I dont really know about this being an APA, but its just such a tasty beer, I cant knock it. Thanks again, Steve!!!

Sweet hoppy flowery aroma, nice red gold colour with little head. Slightly sweet with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Leaves an odd taste on the tongue I am unfamiliar with.
