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.

Aubrey (3452) - 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.

alabamajohn (67) - Alabama, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Smallish head. Light golden color w/ steady strreams of carbonation. Tastes a little hoppy, lightly acidic finish. Very thin, Iím afraid. Could use a little more personality. Not bad, overall.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2005
A little more color than a light beer and a big white head. The aroma is plesant. Biscut malt sweetness, really fairly nice. Clean malts and tangy flavor. A bit of an active beer. Malty with a mild bitterness. Itís a clean beer with nice ballance. Would be a nice step up for light beer drinkers.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Cascade and Centennial aroma, which is nice I suppose. Piney, lemonish, floor cleanerish. Nothing besides hops in the aroma. Flavor is herbaceous and a bit medicinal with a very doughy, salty malt composition.

Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty weak in the mouth, not that fun.

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 (2638) - 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 (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2005
A drinkable enough golden/yellow ale, a light, sweet malt aroma with some earthy hop scents. I wouldnít have guessed that Abita used Cascade and Centennial hops in the brew, all hop presence hardly noticeable in the mild, sweet drink. Still, Iíll have no way putting away this golden ale, and be happy knowing that Iím contributing some relief money to the great city of New Orleans while doing so.

Gachupines (954) - 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 wonít be going back for more.
