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."

Tap57 (19) - Gatineau, Quebec, - MAR 23, 2011
Pours dark yellow with medium head and lively carbonation. mix of cereal / fruity taste completed with great bitterness kick. very good American pale ale. probably the best one brewed in Québec. This is my everyday beer and it’s available everywhere in the province.

Cristobal37 (851) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 13, 2016
Aroma is mettalic. Tastes like an English bitter or even an ESB. Some orange peel bitterness. Light and dry. Light cereal caramel malts but mostly a dry bitterness. A bit floral but bitter. Nothing special.

ccex (1210) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2016
12 oz bottle (probably past its prime) pours a clear amber color with tight off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of honey and biscuits, with some toffee and perhaps some peach. Taste is sweet with some bitterness finally coming out in the finish. This is one of the maltiest pale ales I’ve tried. Body is medium with soft carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. Not at all what I was expecting, but a pleasant surprise anyway.

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustée le 28 juin 2015. Bière blonde dorée, limpide, tirant sur le ambré. Col mince blanc crème, assez durable. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de caramel, de céréales grillées. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère. Saveur de caramel, un peu fruitée, avec une pointe de malt rôti. Très bonne, se boit bien, rafraichissante. Bonne bière de soif, de tous les jours.

Matwill (91) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Prise en fût au Roasters Marché Central. De couleur ambrée, ça sent un peu houblonné, malté. Très clean, elle se laisse apprécier sans plus.

AleRider78 (732) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a pale amber colour with a nice thick creamy head. Nice lacing. Good balance of hops and malts in aroma. Flavours are pretty much the same as aromas, with a bit of grainy taste and thick maltiness. Sort of spicy mouthfeel and some tingling on the palate. Not bad, nothing outstanding for a pale.

Zlotta (2363) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2016
0.341 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, bottled in September 2015. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, tan to white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity aroma of honey, strawberry jam, toffee and some peach. Sweetish, rather malty and slightly fruity tase of honey, toffee, marmelade and some peach, followed by a short, slightly bitter finish. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent, easily drinkable stuff.

Bierdimpfe (540) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Clear amber color with powerful delicate activity. Creamy white sparkly 1.5 finger head lasting around 10 minutes with strong legs. Aromas and flavors of grains, fruits, citrus, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Nice floral nose and delicious taste of sweet orange, lemon, apple and a fresh grain feel. Also slightly woody and grassy. Creamy full body with moderate carbonation. Strong and long finish ending with a slightly fruity but highly spicy bitter chalky and dry mouth coat. Overall a very good craft; complex and delicious crispy flavors with good freshness while having a little too much aggressive bitterness for my taste with tongue numbing spicy hops.
