COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St-Ambroise Pale Ale is the brewery’s 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."

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2004
Amber orangish w/ a lasting off white head. A little bit of dry woody hop, and a fairly noticeable diacetyl. Fruitiness is low, and is slightly papery (oxidized). Well balanced, lightly bitter, and fruity sweetness is higher than int the aroma. There is a lightly acidic quality that sours it just a little. Hints of caramel; dry finish, a relatively light hop and stronger diacetyl aftertaste as it warms. Medium bodied w/ medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Not too bad of a beer! I'd prefer American pales like Sierra Nevada, but this is a pretty good one!

Slight hazed amber body frothy light tan head. The aroma is, well different, day-past-prime-peaches, some wood and an English hop aroma. The flavor is a milder version of the aroma, with an odd bitterness that is almost equivalent to tobacco bitterness. Body is smooth and medium. Long lasting aftertaste. Intersting but not my favorite.

Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
Deep gold beer with a nice hoppy nose but with a clear diacetyl problem. Nice crisp malts in mouth with light citrus and floral hops. A good medium body.

Eructoblaster (4205) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2004
Superb golden-copper beer with a dense and stable head. Great fruity/malty aroma with some hints of bread. Robust, dashing and definitely bitter hopsy/floral flavor that ends in a moderately bitter final. Even at 3,5/5, that beer is quite underrated. For about 1,60 CAD, this is probably the best deal you can get among pale ales.

I love this beer. It has been my everyday "session" beer for years and I kind of forgot that I hadn't rated it since joining this great community. Great orangey copper colour with thin head but lots of lacing. Fresh floral aromas supplemented beautifully by lots of hops. Smooth sweet slightly bitter taste leads to a lingering mildly bitter finish. Nice.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2004 This beer is like candy. The first few drops really taste like caramel... but then the real fiesta starts as the after taste hits like a Todd Bertuzzi going on rampage! Rich, warming presence, this is a beautiful example of a pale ale, one that many should take as an model.

3.5
icanrate (22) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2004
Clear, clean looking red amber color, with a good, sudsy white head and fair lacing. Smells fresh and hoppy, with some light malts and floral-honey sweet aromas. More bitterness than sweetness in the taste I found, with a strong bitter finish. Pretty full in the mouth, lightly astringent. Simple enough and refreshing.

3.2
Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2005 Nice interesting aroma, good flavour, on the bitter side, medium hop aroma and a light lingering hoppy aftertaste.

TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Thanks to Rastacouere for sending this to me! Pours a reddened orange with a tall foamy white head. Nose is citric hops and fruit. The taste is essentially a pale ale mixed with a European lager or pilsener. Light hop character along with some grassy notes and some citrus fruit hints. Very drinkable beer. Some light lingering bitterness during the finish, but very smooth overall. Good beer!

Orange- light coloured beer with a fairly decent but quickly diminishing head.mild hoppy aroma some orange peel. Flavour is medium bitter hops with orange and other citrus flavours in the background. Leaves nice lacing on the glass.Tasty
