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.

Cruchon. Le liquide dévoile une robe ambrée. La tête mousseuse est belle et reste accrochée. Le nez cherche à se faire désirer : les houblons qui transpirent les fleurs et la résine cherchent à se frotter à la douceur des grains caramélisés. Au fil des gorgées, quelques pointes épicées qui émergent avec finesse. Au goût, les saveurs des houblons sont plus intenses et davantage complexifiées. Le malt est aussi plus enrobé avec un caramel qui me semble beaucoup plus fignolé. En bouche, le liquide est de moyenne rondeur avec une effervescence adéquate et une texture légèrement crémeuse. En finale, les houblons affirment une amertume agréable et de bonne durée.

My Growler shared with garthicus, GregClow, tupalev, jerc & mabel. Pours a clear deep amber with an average size semi-lasting off-white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of resiny hops and caramel malt. Flavour of resiny hops upfront backed by caramel malt, some fruit and a hint of vegetal notes. Average bodied. Simple but pleasant.

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2010
64 oz growler. Dark copper pour, yellowish head. Aroma is spicy, floral, I like the tea comment I saw previously. Some resin, some toffee like malt too. Taste is quite green, leafy resiny hops but not overly bitter. Well calibrated. Finish is bitter and pretty long, a well done low alcohol IPA.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
2010-08-13. Crisp dark amber body, good sized creamy beige head. 4+ Modest aroma, weedy tea like character, modest resin, mild malt. 6+ Flavour is similar, modest resin and tea like character, light bitterness throughout, light fruity accents. Smooth average palate. Okay, bit different. Resiny character builds in the aftertaste. Growler shared by Blankboy

Eructoblaster (3079) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2010
64oz growler. Nice amber body with a thick off-white frothy head. Wonderful hoppy aroma with oaky, citrusy, and brown sugar hints. Its sharp hoppy taste is a bit less complex and ends with a decent bitter/oaky finish. Good example of APA.

strowlands8 (178) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2010
Aroma and taste both come off as very floral with some nice citrus. A little sweet but a good bitterness backing it up. A good beer with some pretty unique flavours. Cool.

bedainedebiere (501) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2009
Malt and hop intensity, as usual with this brewer. Golden color, thick head and persistant lacing. Very aromatic: fruity hop and malt sweetness. And so is the taste: rather powerful malt sweetness, crafty hopping that is awesomely present in the mouthfeel, medium-lenght of the aftertaste which is dominated by very pleasant citrus hopping. Again, in bottle, I’d buy it a lot more often because this one is very good rendition of those great american brews.

LadySusan (720) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
On tap at Brouhaha. The color is amber with a thin beige head. The taste is of hops and cereal and herbs. Also in the mouth the taste of fruits. The aftertaste is beitter thus the hops. Not that impresive as an A.P.A..

In short: A well done by-the-book Pale Ale with a bit of everything you want from the style. Highly drinkable.
How: On tap… somewhere… (Brouhaha?)
The look: Clear golden blonde body topped by a small off-white head leaving good lacing
In long: The pleasant nose is a bit floral and herbal with resinous notes. The body pleasantly light and juicy without feeling watery in any way. The taste has the refreshing fruity notes one expect from a refreshing pale ale. In this case citrus fruits, apricots and even an orange zest. Some caramel and a touch of honey but overall the sweetness level is pleasantly low. The mild bitterness is citrusy, herbal and just a little resinous. An impressive beginning by this newcomer of the quebec beer scene. First beer I have from them and I can already assert that this is in the top-10 Carleton-sur-Mer breweries.
