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.

12-oz. bottle. Pours a clean golden honey with tiny bubbles fastly rising to the surface where a tiny frothy white head quickly diminishes to a film with lined lacing. Sweet yeast and malt (straw, meal) aroma flanked by some fruity hop notes, apple and grape. Sweet light malt and yeast body with a low bitter and acidic fruity hop finish. Light bodied and fizzy, almost creamy palate. This beer would make a great treat on a hot day to quench a thirst.

This gold ale pours a medium gold blond color from a 12 oz bottle. Large sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied gold ale. Malts are fruity and sweet, caramel and toffee. Hops are slightly floral and citrusy. Some very lively carbonation in this beer. Drinkable, but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Yeah, it looks good coming out. Clean, golden color. Not much aroma at all - what is there is a flowery. The flavor is good, hoppy with lemon/citrus flavors. A great beer to drink and enjoy.

nice looking pour. clouded tan with a copper tinted head. aroma is the expected medicianal rubber floral hop i tend to notice in most abita brews. flavor is caramel coated cardboard a bit of grassy lemon in the finish, drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours a clear golden with a thin ring of white head. Semi-sweet grainy, mildly floral aroma. Starts with a hint of sugar, some dry, full crystal malt and noble hops with a dry grainy finish. A fairly bland and uninteresting beer.

Pours a clear copper with a rapidly diminishing head. Aroma is lemony & sharp. Flavor is quite bitter & dry. Lemons & limes in the aftertaste.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 24, 2005
Totally clear pale yellow/gold color with a few bubbles, topped by a medium sized pure white fluffy head that slowly dissipates to leave nice lacing. Aroma is crisp, dry, bready, yeasty, touch of honey. Flavor is dry, lager-like in quality, touches of malts and honey, with a subtle balancing bitterness in the finish. Itís just alright.

mbeem (104) - New Hope, Alabama, USA - NOV 22, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2005 Pours deep gold, small white head that dissipated very quickly. Light hoppy/ flowery and yeast aroma. Effervescent and very thin bodied. Alka Setzer taste with a hint of hop bitterness. Not a very good beer especially when compared to the tasty Turbodog. Tastes like any other nameless, forgettable mass produced brew out there. My guess is that Abita did this on purpose in order to make it as widely acceptable as possible. Still, itís for a good cause..

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Clear and brightly golden. Sweet and flowery nose smelled good. Thin body; lacked substance ... and more of a malt backbone. Underlying malts -- and sweetness that was there -- was quickly quelled by sharp flowers and bitterness. American hops were nice but a little too self-serving. Aromas were decent, though; however, they didnít carry through into the flavor enough.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 Pours dark gold with a two-finger white head. The aroma is very grainy, with a hint of floral hops. There ainít much to the flavor. Drinkable, but the good people of New Orleans deserve better.
