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.

Pours a macro-like gold, head with big bubbles that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Aroma is very much like a macro, overly sweet bouquet with virtually no hops. Fortunately, flavor is redeeming. Malt profile is very reminiscent of a Kolsch, but without the Kolsch yeast, it is quite different. A mild, fruity, citric undertone, and a definitive bitter moment with a dry finish, and a malty aftertaste. A very good summer brew, I’d bet, and at least a portion of profits go to a good cause. This is a good example of how a lighter style can be really good. A good beer for those just discovering craft beer.

pours golden with a decent sized white head that rapidly dissapears, aroma is citrus, malt, musty yeast, not to pleasant. Flavor is better than aroma but not much better, sweet, honey-like, carbonated, slight grassy hops, and perfume flavor, ok body, blah.

12 oz bottle best by 4/14/06: Slightly hazed golden body w/a short lived white head. Heavily grainy malt aroma w/ a bit of grassy and floral hop. Malt aroma becomes a little less crisp as it warms. Clean otherwise. Some light clover honey aromas as it warms as well. Flavor is grainy malt and lightly grassy hop, clean; finish is semi dry and herbal hop flavored, aftertaste is short lived and herbal hop flavored. Highly carbonated, smooth body, on the prickly side due to carbonation, lighter body just shy of watery. A good summer beer w/ a decent flavor for a lighter style of beer. Nice fresh flavor that would be good for a summer cook while grilling or after the yard work is done!

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Poured a rich golden hue with a modest head and a spicy, citrusy aroma. Light bodied with an almost creamy texture, malty with a slight caramely note, soft hoppiness and a short finish. Tasty, simple but effective.

Wow, I kind of like this beer. It initially taste like a classic pils, but develops into a rich unnaturally smooth pils with the palate of a good pale ale. Now that I notice it is a blond ale, it makes perfect sense. The aroma is a little sour, but kind of pale ale/pils like, not really what I would consider a golden ale. It is really quite good.

Pour is a almost cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is almost next to nothing. Flavor is quite good! Yeast and hops both make an apperance here and quite strong at that. Flavor puts this one in my maybe catagory. Good flavor but weak otherwise. If i saw this on sale somewhere I would deffinatly buy a case.

Lightly malty with some fruitiness and corn notes. Clear, golden color with a white head. Flavor is small, lightly malty and lightly hoppy. Simple and balanced. High carbonation kills the medium body and makes it seem like soda or something. Overall, it isn’t bad except for the carbonation. Thanks to eyedrinkale for this.

Thanks to richbrew for this one. Bottle: Light orange colour, with a medium head, that quickly disappears. Aroma is impressive, notes of pineapple, banana, dough, hefe. Light body with lots of fizzyness.
