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."

tjthresh (1872) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Pours slightly hazed amber with a bit of white head. Sort of an orange hop aroma with some buttery malt. Flavor is citrus and caramel. Pretty easy drinking. I would drink it again if I end up in Canada.

Light Amber pour with fizzy thin head. light malty, sugary aromas, hints of peach fuzz and molasses. Crisp clean palate, light maltiness, caramelly, slight hop bitterness at the finish.

Stew41 (2118) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 7, 2009
Good every day drinker this. Standard issue in appearance although the nose threw up some slightly concerning stale lager notes early but these soon blew off. A hint of fruit sweet ness as well. Palate is a bit hard to read; some bitterness but not in the resiny North American mould, mild fruitiness and a slightly spicy finish. Not much to get excited about but not bad all the same.

3.1
Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2009
12 oz bottle at Butters’ 4th Cellar Reduction. Pours an off-white lacing head with a clear amber body. Smells of brown sugar and some hops. Taste biscuit, caramel, and hops.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden orange pour with a fluffy off-white head that lasts a little while. Aroma is both hoppy and malty and has notes of caramel, pine, grass and honey. Flavour is similar: caramelly malt and herbal / grassy hops. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation and a moderately long, dry finish. Not a bad APA but not particularly exciting either.

mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2010
341mL bottle, pours clear copper with a huge white head. Aroma of subtle hops and malts, with pine in there. Smooth and refreshing palate - flavour of mild hops, spices and caramel. Nice pale ale.

jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 19, 2010
12oz bottle. A pretty standard pale ale. Some hop notes, and a lot of sweet malt aroma. Average body. Worth trying I guess.

3.1
Strangebrewer (1373) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
bottle. Poured clear, dark amber topped with a nice white cap. Citrusy hoppy aroma. Medium bodied with a dry hop mouthfeel. Caramel malt, grassy hop flavour with a tart finish, lingers on.

3.1
gramity (1684) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Three finger head with good carbonation and a reddish-brown colour.Smells of sweet malts and grass. Full mouthfeel, sorta creamy. Beautiful balance of sweet and bitter in the taste with a dry finish. Very drinkable. This is a great choice for the style.

3.1

Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, caramel and some roasted malt, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and roasted malt with grassy hoppyness, some sharp metal. Lightly sweetish pale with caramel - some roasted malt. Too much caramel and finish is bit sharp/metallic.
