UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottle. Amber, champagne bubbles, foamy lacing golden head. Nice honeyish malt overlaid with a subtle hop-profile. Cracker malt, honey, preserved apricots and restrained flowery hop flavor. Good chewy body, creamy mouthfeel.Now this is a pale ale!

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. davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle. Very good APA. Aroma is citrusy, and it has also grass and caramel. Long-lasting and bitter flavour. Oily in the palate, medium body. Amber colour, and a fizzy white head. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle. Dusty dry nose with wild, leafy hops (And some dry leaves), yeasty fruit and pepper. Lightly hazy amber pour with a tan head. Sharp start, tastes mildly sweet with a bready yeasty character under low bitterness but beautifully elegant hop tones. Amber ale fruity tones, dry with a touch of tang. Medium body. Lip-smacking, quick-call-for-another taste - really quenching and addictive. Very impressed. Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
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

Bottle. Clear medium gold amber pour, towering, moussey white head. Softly sweet bready nose on it with fruity, fruity notes and a moderate dose of earthy, herbal hops. The flavors follow suit, caramel and bread at the beginning, then a yeasty fruitiness that transitions to a crisp, dry, moderately bitter hop finish. Nice subtle floral, earthy, and herbal hoppiness. Moderate body. Very clean, well crafted, subtle. cyrenaica (1159) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011

I tried this beer on October 1, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent copper colour with a this white head that left plenty of lacing. The aroma was caramel malt, floral hops, and grain. The mouthfeel was medoim bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt, caramel, and hops.
341 ml bottle. Amber color. Medium head. Sweet aroma made of caramel. Good taste with some character. Solid beer. ronaldtheriot (2020) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 14, 2013
St. Ambroise Pale Ale has a thin, off-white head, a hazy, copper appearance, with a few bubbles and some floating brown bits, and not much lacing. A grayish cloud descended when I swished the bottom residue and poured it in. The aroma is not to bold, but one picks up toast, sweet brown bread crust, and some caramel. Taste is similar, with an energetic, yet, overall mellow bitterness throughout. The mouthfeel is light and watery and slick. St. Ambroise Pale Ale finishes dry, flavorful, and mild. Overall, this is an excellent beer. RJT

Bottle from any local stores. I love the taste of that beer. This is my my go-to beer of choice with a light taste (and alcohol), a nice little bitter presence. Nothing fancy, just a great well balanced simple ale.
