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.

Catching up on some old ratings from Untappd -- First rated on 10 Oct 2013. Probably one of my favorite Abita "regular" brews.

Aroma has some malts, light hops, and some toffee detectable. Light amber pour, white head. Flavor is sweet kings Hawaiian rolls, peppery hops, fruit. Body is light, I like it. This is a good beer.

Kosmokrator (475) - ITALY - FEB 19, 2014
"Restoration Pale Ale", 5.2% abv. Nebuloso color giallo intenso con riflessi arancio e saponosa schiuma bianca. Aroma fruttato e luppolato simile a quello di una APA con sentori leggermente aciduli. Gusto dolciastro, maltato e delicatamente fruttato con il luppolo che passa in secondo piano; finale appiccicoso e un po’ sgradevole. Corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza nella norma, struttura parzialmente oleosa. Peccato per il retrogusto, poteva uscirne una birra semplice ma dissetante.

@ Party Town / Bellvue KY hazy dirty orange, 1/2" head w/ good retention, stripes of lace. Aroma is pleasant hops. Taste is mild caramel malt that is somehow over-run by equally mild hops. I’m not saying there is nothing here, only that all is understated. Actually very sessionable, but would quickly grow tiresome for lack of flavor.

Pours a hazy yellow with smallish head. Light pine aroma. A little thin and lacks balance. Disappointing.

Light floral citrus and bready malt aroma and taste with a lightly bitter finish. Not much going on here.

johnnnniee (2293) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle from Bert’s Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a decent sized white head and minimal lace. Aromas of pine and grapefruit are evident as soon as I pry off the cap. Bready caramel malt with a hint of sulfur provides a base for the aroma. The flavor is bready caramel with lots of light juicy fruits. Hop flavors are rather mute with a light level of hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Smells like there might be some hops, but they must have turned to fruit. Easy drinking mild pale ale that I could easily session if I weren’t always looking for more hops.

drico133 (5) - long beach, Mississippi, USA - DEC 6, 2013 does not count
Poured a golden color little to no head. Great smell really enjoyed the sweet aroma with a hint of hops. Sweet taste slightly bitter at the end. Enjoyed the taste at 5.2 it can be a session beer overall an ok beer from the fine folks at abita.

CervezaCabeza (20) - Le Mans, FRANCE - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Poured a cloudy golden color with a hint of copper. White quickly dissipating head with very slight lacing. A crisp hoppy start with lemony citrus notes for the finish. Fizzy and easy to drink not as much complexity as I desire but a suitable pale ale that leaves your mouth quenched and refreshed.
