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.

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.

Pailhead (6249) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Eyedrinkale via trade. Aroma is lightly fruity with wet dog and some grassy and floral hops. Pours a transparent golden orange with a moderate white head with decent retention. Flavor is lightly citrus sweet throughout. Finish is light grassy and flowery hops. Pretty much what I was expecting. Rather unexciting. Maybe a decent lawnmower beer.

12oz. bottle. Aroma is fairly slight, just some mildly biscuity, crackery maltiness coupled with vague hints of sweetness and cereal grains. Light-medium golden color, clear, with a lasting, fine, white head. Flavor is likewise on the weak side, being comprised of a very light dosage of bitterness and lemony citrus, sweetening up a bit by the finish, which also sees a tad of pale maltiness late. Palate is creamy, smooth and light with a light-medium body. Eventually gains some mild trash in the nose. Perhaps I expected too much?

12oz bottle. Now before I have even tried this beer. I have had rather dismal comments. But in all truthfulness, I am assuming that this is a smooth, light character, easy drinking, working in the backyard or getting sloppily drunk while yelling at random drunk people riding past you at three miles per hour, type of beer. And lets see if this is a beer I could drink all day at Mardi Gras...Hazy and light golden with an orangish hue. decent white head and an aroma of citrus. Good yeasty nose as well. Super lively and citrus driven. Almost candy-ish in the mouth. Literally sweet. Behind the initial taste explosion, which also surprised me, was a nice mild biscuity malt character. Cold, crisp and smooth. More bite and off-dry. Granted, this will not win any major awards, but that’s not why its here. It’s easy for when you need copious amounts of libations and still have clarity enough to demand something with a little character. And while I’m neither French nor Catholic, this will be joining me on Saturday in Soulard!

Slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head on top. Some hints of grassy and citrusy hops in the aroma. Flavor is extremely watery with just a slight hint of citrus. There’s nothing really special about this beer and it is about to end up poured down the drain.

Pours a murky lager like golden with a crop of white head. Nose is faintly hoppy, with some sweet malts a little bland. Not much better in the flavor department. Some hop notes with a subtle citrusy thing goin’ on. Comes up way short.

This beer really reminds me of the English Blonde Ale Ratebeer homebrew recipe we have here. It’s apparently not the hops, although the hop profile doesn’t really come across all that much like the Cascade and Centennial that they list on the commercial deScription. It’s really a more herbal, almost peppery hoppiness. Cracker malt is fairly dry with a crisp bitterness in the back. Really not a bad golden ale.

Clear very light amber color with a thin white head. Light hopped aroma with hints of honey. Flavor of light sweetness but overall a tad too light.
