COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La CORTE-REAL, de couleur blond doré, possède un arôme floral. Toute en équilibre, cette bière bien assise sur une base de malt, laisse ressortir, tout au long de la dégustation, les différents goûts que le houblon Centennial peut apporter à une bière.

Bottle @mondial de la bière. A clear amber beer, nose is on caramel and hops. Aroma is on a classic pale ale, well hopy with resin notes at the finish, good body, malty, good stuff, nice hops bouquet, enjoyable.

I would like to try the bottled version of this because I had this on tap at St-Bock and my impressions certainly differ from the most positive reviews here. Did not taste much like a pale ale to me but rather the taste of unmalted barley. No hop bitterness and tastes like cereal. Was the poorest beer I drank in an evening at St-Bock.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 on tap and in bottle. pours a medium dark golden with a nice head, good retention and lacing. malt depth, biscuity toasted maltiness, spicy, floral and citrusy, touch of dirt. short to medium long finish - floral-citrusy-grassy. average carbonation, light body - oily mouthfeel. a quite nicely crafted pale ale.

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
500 mL bottle. Clear copper with a small beige head. Mild aroma of floral hops. Flavour is better than the aroma, and more complex. More pineapple and citrus than the nose, and there is almost an Alt note to the malt profile. Quite interesting. Solid body.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
On tap @ the brewpub, enjoyed as part of their "compass style" degustation tasting tray. Clear medium gold, ropy lacy white crown. Intense tropical fruit, especially ripe papaya. Lively fruity palate, some floral perfume, moderately bitter finish.

Belle couleur ambrée limpide. Elle dégage une bonne odeur florale, d’agrumes et de houblon. Goût prononcé de houblon, modérément sucré et très agréable en bouche, qui laisse la place à une belle amertume équilibrée. Très bonne.

As probstk put it so well "salt and vinegar chips" - Exactly. Aroma and taste. Tx to SlovakSniper for the experience. Poured out what appears to be a faintly hazy solid amber brew in the wonderful lighting which is my basement - 40 zillion light fixtures and 3 working bulbs. Foamed up pretty good - large light tan slippery lacing later on but any pour creates a hearty ring. The nose is bizarre. S & V chips.. is there something wrong here? somewhat caramelly, sugars, I don’t get it. There is some bitterness in the back of the sips, more chips, faint pine, light citrus, this does get moderately better after a lengthy sit as does the aroma but still... Some fruit, caramel sort of. Creamy carbonation as more of the APA peers out from whatever dungeon holds it. More fruity now but it still has this oddness that I cannot nail down. Decent mouth feel. I didn’t dig this beer. I’m down to the last sips and it is finally going to a place I thought it would start out at. In fact, it is getting much better but much better only to a point of subpar. Great label!

Slightly cloudy pale amber color with a medium offwhite head. Nice aroma of citrusy and slightly resinous hops with a caramel malt. Very good flavor of citrusy, slightly resinous hops with caramel and bitterness in the end, there’s also some lingering sweetness. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. This is a very satisfying pale ale.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2011
Bière presque limpide de couleur de blé coiffée d’un beau col chamoix. Des arômes lactés de caramel et de résine. Intense amertume multidimentionnelle. De corps moyen et de texture collante, elle laisse en bouche une une longue fin amère et aromatique.
