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.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. Clear copper with a thick off white head with good retention. Aroma is mostly malty with butterscotch, toasted malt, and a hint of herbal hops. Lacking a lot of hops aroma for an APA. Flavor is hoppier with herbs, apricots and lychees notes, heavy bitterness from the beginning to the aftertaste, with caramel and toasted malt. Medium body. Pretty strange beer, the aroma is unbalanced on the malty side and the flavor is unbalanced on the hops side.

Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours deep orange with a garnet flash. Moderate to thick off-white head, decent lacing. Nose is grassy hops, some grapefruit, some lemon. Flavours of spicy grapefruit, preserved lemon, and dried orange rind, along with a bit of spicy yeast, and a full, oily, malt presence. Decent, but eminently forgettable.

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.

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!
