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."

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.

Bouteille. Arome de malt et de houblon. Couleur cuivre, beau collet de mousse assez persistent. Bon quilibre entre les flaveurs de malt caramel et damertume trs floral. Corps un peu faible. Carbonatation faible typique des ales anglaise. Arrire-got trs long. Trs 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.

A very solid anytime of year, any occasion beer. It will always hit the spot and your friends that drink to get drunk will like it too.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2009
11.5oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper color with a fairly solid off-white head. Aroma is strong and fresh, with a very earthy mix of hops, floral notes, grains, and malt. Taste is creamy and fairly full, with a very mild flavor of grains and malt coming up to a slightly hoppy and floral finish. Not in the same league as their stout, but still a solid and mellow APA.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Got this in trade courtesy of korguy123. 341 ML into a standard pint glass. Poured a golden amber with a two-finger head which dissapted rapidly to a coating. Nose has some floral elements up front, as well as some citrus, caramel and biscuit. Taste is slightly bitter with notes of coriander and orange, held up by the biscuity malt. There are some citrus hops but they arent forward. Finish is slightly bitter and sticky. Carbonation is certainly visible but not felt. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium. A decent APA but not my favorite style, for sure.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2006
Gorgeous. Just about everything I had last night was! Poured darker than I expected for a pale ale. Small head, and as good as I expected from my past experience with St. Ambroise. . The flavour comprised of sweet ripe fruits and a very nice bitterness lingered in the aftertaste. Best Pale I have had yet.

Bottle from the LCBO. Amber pour with a small white head. Fresh hops and fruit aroma. Great hops taste and a lingering finish. Pleasant.

Is it a red or a pale? I dunno but it kicks ass. Beautiful example of why microbrewing rules.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 The best beer widley avalible in Montreal. Spicy coper color like a pale ale should be. {most north americans think pale meens yellow, idiots} Lovley medium bitter ale, smokey, malt, hop, bitter. Highly carbonated for a bitter, large bubbles comprise thick head. tight nose. RUNS down the throat deffonetly a pint to be murderd in the hot sun.
