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.

Trip. Nice golden with creamy head and light lacing. Smells like flour, lemon, robber, and cat piss. Light bitter flavor with sweet undertone and a counterpoint of spice and sour. Light dry/bitter finish. Decent.

Drjohnrock (540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce bottle labeled "Abita Restoration Pale Ale" bought as part of an Abita variety 12 pack from Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on April 5, 2015, Slightly hazy golden hue, interesting orange/other citrus/hoppy nose, taste pretty much like the aroma. Not the biggest beer around but a nice, sessionable brew.

floydian1 (1110) - FNQ, Australia, - MAR 26, 2015
355ml bottle as Restoration pale ale (ABV 5.2%). Hazy orange pour with an ample white head. Nose and taste of biscuity sweet malts with citrusy and piney hops. Finishes mildly dry and bitter with a medium body and carbonation. Less resinous than Sierra Nevada pale ale.

TBone (13446) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Tap @Buns Burger, San Juan. Hazy orange color, good creamy off-white head. Herbal, grassy hoppy aroma. Light-bodied. Grassy, hoppyness with light fruityness. Short finish. Ok with food, otherwise boring and watery.

ogivlado (6157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottled 355ml. -at O’Haras Zagreb as Abita Restoration Ale. Pale golden coloured, small white head, whiff of oranges in the nose. Toasted malt, quite fruity, caramel and grassy with hoppy fruity notes in the finish. Pretty average brew.

Block (1637) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Very light, smooth, crips. A fairly regular beer which is on the lighter side. Seems to be pretty typical of Abita.

Great nose and that's about it for me. Lacks punch and length on the palate. Not unenjoyable but unremarkable for this reviewer.

Found in a bottle shop in Manila, Philippines. At least its hoppy compared to the local water. I’d probably find this rather unremarkable in the states but here hoppy beers are hard to find so it got a few bonus points based on being available in Southeast Asia. Cascade hops but not much else. No real malt presence. Hops nose to finish. Decent.

Beerathon (1444) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Not good, not horrible, just sorta whatever. An aroma of lemon, wheat, light citrus. Flavor is a bit metallic with crisp malts. Soft carbonation, semi-creamy head, gold in color.

Pours golden with minimal head and carbonation. There was little to no bouquet on this drop with very minimal hop bitterness. Got a few citrusy flavours and a slight bitter finish but wasn't anything too captivating!

HIGHB4LL (791) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, golden yellow, clear, good lacing, head does not last. Aroma: citrus and resiny hops, caramel, fruity notes. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter and dry finish, thin middle, with sticky finish for texture. Taste: sweet fruit and light caramel into good resiny bitter finish. Overall, unique palate, not necessarily great taste, but balance is good, enjoyable, hoppy for a blond, but bottle says pale ale so I feel it is a good fit. Lovely aroma
