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."

Pours a light amber color. Nice size and long lasting head. Hoppy, flowery perfume aroma. Medium bodied, slightly malty, caramel flavors, metallic / dry finish. Not bad at all and quite an enjoyable beer.

341ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Amber/copper body with a thin off-white head. Pine, nuts and some caramel on the nose. Hops and nuts initially with roasted/ burnt flavor of malt lingers into the finish. Elevated pervieved bitterness. Alcohol is normal, very sessionable.

Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
A: Poured with an average-sized, white head that diminished to a 1/2-sized finger. Some slight lacing. Body is quite clear, and a nice, dark-yellow color. A very handsome-looking APA. S: Terrific aroma of hops, herbs, and orange. T: A very refreshing, yet slightly-intense flavor of hops that ends fairly bitter, but not overpowering, and with citrus undertones. Taste stays with you for awhile. M: Medium-bodied and slightly creamy, it’s quite soft and pleasant on the palate. Lively carbonation. D: An excellent APA with a lot of character, yet easy to drink at the same time. Another winning entry from a Quebec brewery. McAuslan Brewing and Unibroue are doing VERY well for themselves.

The flavor is a nice well balanced mix. It has some good malts and a couple different types of hops. You also get some carmel notes as well. It is sort of creamy for a pale ale. The aroma is nice I get some malt,honey and some floral hops coming through Pours an amber color with a decent size white head and a good amount of lacing It finishes with a nice blend of all the elements lingering on the palate. I got this in a taster box and it was by far the best beer in that box. I have to say my new favorite pale ale. I can’t stop drinking it

Speedy_Charly (217) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. D’une couleur cuivrée qui se situe à la frontière entre les blondes et les ambrées elle est surmontée d’une mousse blanche, crémeuse et assez durable. Arôme de caramel (malt grillé) et légere pointe d’amertume trop faible pour qu’on décide entre le pin ou les agrumes. Au palais c’est crémeux, presque sirupeux, avec un goût de caramel légèrement brûlé qui laisse place à une fine amertume résineuse assez raffraichissante. Une pale ale bien balancée qui n’a rien à envier aux bières commerciales du même type.

3.6
Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2007
Bouteille. Arome de malt et de houblon. Couleur cuivre, beau collet de mousse assez persistent. Bon équilibre entre les flaveurs de malt caramel et d’amertume très floral. Corps un peu faible. Carbonatation faible typique des ales anglaise. Arrière-goût très long. Très bonne pale ale.

A decent beer, but nothing compared to the oatmeal stout. This is a standard pale ale, ive had better and Ive had worse.
