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.

The aroma is a myriad of hops, floral, herbal, and grass along with lemon and malt. The appearance is golden with a nice size head. The flavor is buttery, bread-like, grassy, and hoppy without being very bitter. The aftertaste is slightly peppery. Itís quite drinkable and you get to help a good cause too.

Bottle. Pours gold with no head. Nose is sweet and grassy with light honey-ish notes, mild hops and light candied fruit. Taste is similarly honey-ish with sweet malts, grass, light lemon, buttered bread, light hops and dried fruits. Very light feel but very silky as well. Finishes more like an American wheat. Wheat notes, stronger lemon, slightly larger hop profile, less honey and sweet malts, and mild straw. Not bad!

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Pours amber gold, ok yellow head. Aroma of citrus and lots of yeast. Not too pleasant smell. Flavor was heavy on the yeast, whole wheat, vague citrus. Finished clean enough, some bitterness. Not bad at all, just not great, but you should drink a pack anyway for charity.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2005
12oz bottle - Pours golden with a short white head that fades fast to a film but laces after that. Aroma is of bread and floral hops. Flavor is bready as well. A touch of lemon as well. Light and airy palate. Easy to drink but nothing much to remember. A good cause though!

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Not nearly as crappy as most of their other offerings. Poured a pale golden yellow with a small white head that disappeared quickly. Light hops and malt in the nose...maybe a bit too cold at the moment. Flavor has a nice citric hop edge with some token sweet malts hanging around. Thin bodied....dry finish. Not bad...decent to swill while watching some football.

Aurelius (4230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2005
This reminds me of Yeungling Lord Chesterfield a bit. Nice golden ale aroma with light, lemonflower citrus hop notes over a slightly taffyish malt. Screw-off cap, OK label, golden ale, three-finger beady head in a pilsener glass. Flavor is mostly dry, and not as sweet as the aroma would suggest. There was something in the beerís flavor profile, however, that absolutely screamed out for chili. I mean, it was as plain as the nose on yer face. This is a beer that the beer snob and the beer slob could come to terms on.

macguy (146) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Like sex in a canoe. Itís ale-light The nose is nice, the favor is citrus bitter but there is very little of it. Over all a thin, unremarkable beer.

BeerandBlues2 (9804) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2005
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
