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.

Definitely mis-labeled this beer. Seems much more like an APA/IPA than a golden ale to me. Pretty grainy and dry but not in the good IPA form. Another pretty below avg. beer from Abita.

Clear amber with small white head. Medium sweet aroma with notes of spiced orange, caramel, buttered toast. Light bodied, watery. Flavor was weak and watery. Some hint of sweetness but mostly water.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is citrus,sweet malt, yeast. Flavor is sweet, honey, carbonated, slight grassy, and perfume flavor.

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber with an off-white head. Lovely hoppy, floral aroma. Medium body with some caramel malt but otherwise dominated by floral accents. Dry, hoppy finish. A straightforward and nice brew that really comes closer to an APA than to a Golden Ale. 270306

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2006
Gold body with a very light, non-existant white head. Aroma is typical of a Golden Ale, malts, honey, light corn (almost mead like). Flowery body, light hops... fair, but not great taste. Bland ending, again fair but not great.

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottled, BB 4/3/06. Poured a clear, dim amber with a tall cap of frothy white head. Nose had notes of citrus and flowery hops, wheat, and bready pils malts. Flavor was a unpleasantly-constructed tapestry of grainy wheat, corn, sour lemon rind, bread, and tacky caramel sweetness... not bad elements in and of themselves, but did not work well here. Lighter-bodied. Palate was all over the place with sour notes, wheaty tartness, soap, and bitterness... again did not flow. Great cause, though.

Folks. Just dont do it. Pours a clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of raw corn. Flavor is corn. BMC dressed up folks.

3fourths (8295) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Perfectly clear amber orange color, poured with a fine tall head in a pilsener flute. Slightly fruity and gummy wheat and grain nose. Lemon and soap scents primarily, but there’s some melon scents as well that are kind of nice. Moderately hoppy sweet fruit flavor, clean and crisp on the tongue, with some light grain and sugar flavor. Wet palate.

Kinz (3376) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2011 Light copper, little head. Slightly smoky malt aroma. Flavor was a bit thin, very light caramel accented malts. Mildly bitter hop finish, again a hint of smoke, probably the result of using the Centennial hops for bittering. Faint hint of lemon on finish. Not bad, but not great. Nice to see the money going to a good cause at least. RERATE: 7/29/11 - this was the Restoration Ale packaging. Grrr, re-badge. Pale clear orange, decent head. Aroma lightly bready, touch of citrus. Flavor is bread, faint caramel. Lightly citric hops are barely present, touch lemony. Some bitterness lightly on the finish. Not bad, but not great either. Very, very slightly higher rating than the original 6,3,6,2,13.
