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.

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.

Idiosynkrasie (6511) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2015
355ml bottle. Barely clear, golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Perfumed, herbal and floral, hoppy aroma, biscuity, pale malty background, some lemon biscuit. Taste is crisp hoppy, slighty grassy, floral, some lemon, a minimally perfumed touch of bath salt. Nicely hopped, quite OK.

Drjohnrock (691) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce bottle labeled "Abita Restoration Pale Ale" bought as part of an Abita variety 12 pack from Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on April 5, 2015, Slightly hazy golden hue, interesting orange/other citrus/hoppy nose, taste pretty much like the aroma. Not the biggest beer around but a nice, sessionable brew.

355ml bottle as Restoration pale ale (ABV 5.2%). Hazy orange pour with an ample white head. Nose and taste of biscuity sweet malts with citrusy and piney hops. Finishes mildly dry and bitter with a medium body and carbonation. Less resinous than Sierra Nevada pale ale.

TBone (16191) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Tap @Buns Burger, San Juan. Hazy orange color, good creamy off-white head. Herbal, grassy hoppy aroma. Light-bodied. Grassy, hoppyness with light fruityness. Short finish. Ok with food, otherwise boring and watery.

Block (2324) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Very light, smooth, crips. A fairly regular beer which is on the lighter side. Seems to be pretty typical of Abita.

Great nose and that's about it for me. Lacks punch and length on the palate. Not unenjoyable but unremarkable for this reviewer.

Found in a bottle shop in Manila, Philippines. At least its hoppy compared to the local water. I’d probably find this rather unremarkable in the states but here hoppy beers are hard to find so it got a few bonus points based on being available in Southeast Asia. Cascade hops but not much else. No real malt presence. Hops nose to finish. Decent.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Not good, not horrible, just sorta whatever. An aroma of lemon, wheat, light citrus. Flavor is a bit metallic with crisp malts. Soft carbonation, semi-creamy head, gold in color.
