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.

This was the first Golden/Blond ale that we have tried in our beer club, and it wasn’t that different than other Pale Ales. IT had a nice dark golden color with some mild hops. Hey with a $1 going towards New Orleans, I will support them as often as I can find it here in Memphis.

Light golden color, Foamy head. I smelled swimming pool when I took a wiff of this. Flavor was alright, mild bitterness, some sweetness. But I was glad I didn’t have to drink the whole bottle.

Tasting this after jambalaya. Works well with Cajun. Clean aroma, but hard to pin down. The finish is bitter hop. A very clean drink. The principal aspect is a very good mouth feel. A bit tangy. The finish suggests another.

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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2006
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!

Pour was amber gold, fizzy head. Hop nose. The taste is citris, real easy to drink. Wonder what the ABV is? Cheers to New Orleans! Rebuild baby.

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.
