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.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Clear golden. Big aroma of spicy, floral hops. Doughy. Taste is more ripe floral hops,slight bitterness with a little astringent impurity. Watery body. Finish is clean but unimpressive.

Shag (2606) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 A dark golden apperance with a large head. The aroma is citrusy with a hint of perfume. The flavor is fairly bitter with some pine, lemons, and peaches. The finish is somewhat dry. Its more in the mold of a pale ale than a blonde ale to me. A pretty decent beer and some money going toward Katrina so thats a good thing.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2005
A drinkable enough golden/yellow ale, a light, sweet malt aroma with some earthy hop scents. I wouldn’t have guessed that Abita used Cascade and Centennial hops in the brew, all hop presence hardly noticeable in the mild, sweet drink. Still, I’ll have no way putting away this golden ale, and be happy knowing that I’m contributing some relief money to the great city of New Orleans while doing so.

Gachupines (901) - USA - NOV 5, 2005
Light golden color with a thin but lingering head. Taste is light and easy to drink. Nothing that stands out too much, but its not a bad beer either. Very slight bitterness in the finish. Refreshing, but probably won’t be going back for more.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Rerate Better the second time around - maybe ’cause I’m in Louisiana? Fresher tasting - has some Kolsch qualities - kind of buttery Original 2.6 Jax Package Store, Sandy Springs, Ga. - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium golden with a somewhat sticky, frothy white head. Aroma upon pouring was literally very similar to a stale popcorn fart - but it mellows some to smell somewhat like an ocean beach with some spicy notes. Flavor has a metallic tint to it, with some back end spiciness. touch of honey sweetness. Tastes like it is a bit old, but cannot be the case as the label talks about the beer being dedicated to Hurricane Katrina victms which hit just a little bit over two months ago. Mouthfeel is decenlty thick for a Blonde. Had worse.

Light gold appearance with a light head,, light though not real pleasant aroma. Light flavors follow the aroma, with a light malt profile and light hops presence, light body. Works ok to wash down a light dinner. Did I mention it was light?

woo hoo! I’m number 3! This beer pours a light golden amber color with a small white head. It has a light hop flavor that is a little soft. There are notes of spices too. This is a very refreshing beer but nothing that stands out.. although, part of the money from this beer goes to rebuilding the New Orleans area! Everyone should at least get 1 six pack for this reason alone! Cheers!

Got this at Jax, surprised to be only the second person rating it. Pours dark golden with a fully receding white head. The slightly unpleasant aroma is flowery hops, a little bit of funk, a hint of DMS. If you think cheese doodles, you WILL smell them, I promise. Taste is grainy malts and herbal bitterness. I would have trouble identifying these hops as Cascade/Centennial. Didn’t enjoy the beer terribly, but I like the label and hope the sale of this beer helps the city of New Orleans.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Poured a clear amber color with an off-white head. Earthy aroma with some notes of cheese doodles. Earthy hop flavor with mlat underneath. Dry finish with some hop bitterness at the end. Maybe I will try this again because I didn’t get any citrus or typical "C" hop aroma or flavor in my bottle.
