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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber with an off-white head. Lovely hoppy, floral aroma. Medium body with some caramel malt but otherwise dominated by floral accents. Dry, hoppy finish. A straightforward and nice brew that really comes closer to an APA than to a Golden Ale. 270306

Hazy dull straw. Woody, slightly lemony hop nose with light pale malts. Some wood and tropical fruit taste. Fairly low bitterness. A bit watery in the finish, and despite some nice hop notes the malts never amount to much.
