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.

probstblueribbon (2918) - 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.

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).

Growler 1,8L. De couleur dorée-cuivrée et claire. Nez de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches) aux notes résineuses et florales, malté de céréales avec des traces de caramel, et moyennement fruitée (agrumes, traces dabricots). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement huileuse et aux petites notes résineuses. Goût fruité (agrumes, surtout orange, traces d’abricots et de pommes rouges) accompagné dun goût moyen-amer de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches) et légérement floral (une amertume présente durant toute la gorgée) lors de lentrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales fraîches ainsi que des notes de caramel doux ainsi que quelques traces de biscuits secs puis en finale lon assiste à un regain damertume assez asséchante de houblon herbeux (herbes et thé) et léger-moyen résineux. Post-goût moyen-long et sec, moyen-amer de houblon herbeux, moyennement résineux et aux notes florales ainsi que léger de fruits (zest dagrumes).

Quevillon (2503) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
Bu à Brouhaha le 30/11/08, en fut (20oz). Blonde dorée, petit collet. Arome de malte caramelisé, un peu fruité et houblonné. Le goût est très amère et ça reste comme ça, légèrement houblonné un petit peu sucré. Ça c’est amère, mais pas assez de goût!

cfrancis (2358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2011
Pours a deep amber with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is grain, slight hop and cereal. Taste is great. Cereal, hop with a low bitterness. But a great malt profile for a pale ale.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of cereal and caramel, flowers and spruce, faint soap for the yeast, with hints of dried fruit. Head is small, frothy, off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is medium amber/tan. Flavor starts moderately acidic and finishes lightly to moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. Well balanced aromas and fantastic flavors in this American Pale Ale.

VertBaconStrips (2081) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2011
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!

TheJester (1878) - 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.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 8, 2011
Nice extra-large off-white head and a clear bright amber body. Soft aroma of malts with just a hint of hoppiness. Flavour is smooth maltiness with a dry hoppy finish. Simple but very drinkable, and well made.
