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.

Pleasing lemony hop aroma, lightly soapy, weak bready malts. Off gold with minimal head and carbonation. A spike of hop flavors up front doesn’t do much, quickly rounding into a vague, blandish sweetness. Finish begins as a tingle of carbonation, a light dab of hops and then nothing at all. Overally pretty flavorless.

Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Very light spotty lacing. Has a grassy hop aroma. Flavor is mild citrus hop but the bitterness really comes through. Light to medium body. Not bad. Worth a try.

(Best by JAN/02007) Light, crisp, refrshing, and drinkable. Nice and dry for a hot day.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Pours a bright gold with a thick off-white head. Very hoppy aroma and flavor with a touch of citrus. Slightly bitter finish. O.K summer drinker.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Cloudy gold, with a thick foamy head that lasts through the glass. The aroma is clearly hops, hops and hops, with a piney citrus aroma. The medium body is dry with a clean finish.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Clear bright gold. Fizzy. Two-finger cream-colored dense head. Very lacy. Grassy and lightly bitter aroma. Taste is light grassy malt with a mild but interesting hop finish. Light, crisp and that’s about it. A non-descript golden ale. However it tastes good and drinks easy. a good summer beer, maybe even a gateway beer for some Bud drinking friends at the summer barbeque.

Pretty boring. The hops are there, but they are very one dimensional. Skip it.

Golden color. Moderate lasting white head. Light hoppy aroma. Refreshing light taste.

frankenkitty (2004) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Golden/copper bodied topped with a white skin. Fruity citrus-hop aroma is all-orange. Flavor is a bit thin, yet the buttery mouthfeel still carries a well-balanced malt/hop profile to create quite the decent APA (or so I thought).

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2009 Taster at the Balmoral Brewhaha. A sharp, clean northwestern hop hit made me peg this as a Pale Ale. But no, I see it down as a Blond. Very close, either way. The malt base is a little light, and plays well of the featured hops. Regrettably, our taster cups were solid black, so I couldn’t tell you much about how it looks, except for a nice skimmer of foam on top. But it’s very nice on a warm, humid summer’s evening and lets me prepare for the more off-kilter beers at this event.
