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.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a huge frothy white head that lasted. Good balanced malt and hop and grain aroma. Medium body with thin texture. Light sweet grainy flavor in a light finish. To soft of a close.

A blonde ale with a thick off white head. In aroma, a pleasant hoppy caramel malt, nicely hoppy, caramel malt, nicely pungeant. In mouth, a clean caramel malt with grassy notes, German hops, a tad on the boring side. On tap at Datz, Jan. 8 2011.

BeerandBlues2 (9903) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2005
12-oz. bottle. Pours a clean golden honey with tiny bubbles fastly rising to the surface where a tiny frothy white head quickly diminishes to a film with lined lacing. Sweet yeast and malt (straw, meal) aroma flanked by some fruity hop notes, apple and grape. Sweet light malt and yeast body with a low bitter and acidic fruity hop finish. Light bodied and fizzy, almost creamy palate. This beer would make a great treat on a hot day to quench a thirst.

hopscotch (9258) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Sublte nose; almost nondescript. The flavor is perfectly balanced, but uninspiring. I can only pick up some tanginess up front, followed closely by a laid-back bitterness. Fairly thin on the palate. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. Medium length, almost tart, then dry finish.

daknole (9226) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Bottle, thanks Deepsouth!! Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is of malts,hops and something funky. Flavor is a tad better than the aroma. Malty and hops are present...no complexity but as with most Abita beers I find it prett smooth.
