COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fleur-de-lis Restoration Ale is made with English Pale, Lager, Crystal and Cara Pils malted barley. We liberally hopped and dry hopped our Ale with American Cascade and Centennial hops and fermented it with California Ale yeast. The result is a brilliant gold ale with a rich body, mild bitterness and a snappy fresh citrus hop flavor and aroma.

highlandlad (1470) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2015
Light, summery session ale with more character than most in this category. Murky gold topped by a head that was as thick as it was persistent. Nice fruity aroma - mango, OJ, pineapple. Good body. Moderate bitterness - above average for this style so long as you don’t expect a hop bomb. Good solid malt foundation here. Bright, tangy hops. Overall, great balance. I liked this more than I expected to after a few ho-hum Abitas. (355ml bottle from Carrington Cellars, Katoomba)

Hazy, amber colored, moderate white creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel, candy-fruity, orange and tropical fruit, hard candy. Taste is medium- sweet caramel malt, hard fruity candy, oranges. Low bitterness. Light bodied, thin, moderate carbonation. Meh, I guess it took a beating on route from the brewery to Croatia... (Pivoteka, Zagreb, CRO)

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Poorly-defined sugary cereals dominate this underhopped Pale Ale, yielding a rather boring pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy beige.
-Drinkability could be higher; this is sweetish for the style.
-In a blind tasting, I would not have billed this as a Pale Ale. The hops are that shy...
-There is little flavor nuance to speak of in here.

On tap at Acme Oyster Bar, New Orleans.

trapped (2249) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 7, 2015
Cask. Hazy dark orange with small foamy white head, grassy hops aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet hoppy taste, thin body, abrupt finish. Quite smooth but a bit weak.

andrewje41 (2872) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2015
12 oz bottle poured. Listed as Abita Restoration Pale, 5.2%, like the collaboration beer was. Pours a cloudy copper color with a thick foam head. Bottle a couple weeks after is best by date. Sweet tropical orange fruit aroma. Creamy body. Flavor is really hoppy throughout, and tropical. Some tangerine. Tasty hop forward finish. Tasty pale. Good beer here.

AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - light biscuit and toffee. Some citrus. Taste - more of the same. Decent biscuit crunch. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a decent pale. Good malt structure.

Thanks kajzer for sharing this with us! At Pivoteka. Slightly misty orange/amber body with a thick white head. Malt-driven aroma, orange rock candy. Taste... light, nice orange rock candy, no bitterness and almost no aftertaste. Oof. Not sure how it is fresh, but I guess this one has taken a blow from the travel. Still proved to be better than the other Abitas I’ve had that day.
