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.

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.

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.

JulienHuxley (3937) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - 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.

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.

Bottle (500 ml). Bottle November 13th 2012, so this one is 4 month old (crap, didn’t saw it when I bought it). Clear amber with a small fully lasting white head and small lacing. Aroma is of citrus along with floral notes and slight caramel. Hops are faded though. Taste is slightly sweet with a lot of citrus, floral/herbal notes and slight caramel. Herbal finish. Slight but sticky bitterness. Medium body. Slightly watery. Still refreshing and drinkable even with 4-month of age. Pretty decent bottled APA, it’s probably fun too drink (except if it’s a lot more herbal young).

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.

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.

probstblueribbon (3218) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2011
500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a large off-white foam. Aroma: Slightly nutty and earthy, a touch infected?, seem British rather than American, salt and vinegar chips, some caramalt, burnt sugar and C-hops once the yuck clears out, weird start that worked out fairly well in the end. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence. Flav.: Better than the nose and more to style, some decent grapefruit and marmalade, almost enough malt backbone for support, quite dry for an APA, without the characteristic caramalt, still decent; dry with pretty good bitterness and a dusty, malty, C-hop finish.

The nose had me worried, but the flavour was reassuring.
