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.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2007
Pale golden beer, quite hazy with a thin white head. Aroma is quite wheaty, light orange peel with some light berryish fruitiness in back. There is also some sweet nuttiness that is a bit surprising is such a pale beer. Flavour is a bit butterscotchy which is probably where the nutty aroma is coming from. Watery palate and moderate bitterness iwth a lingering orange peel/diacetyl flavour. Itís a pretty boring brew.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Multiple samples for fun at amateur beer tasting night. Pours a clear straw with a two-finger white head. Not much retention or lace. Aroma is raw grain, white sugar, raw oatmeal. Taste is brown sugar oatmeal, raw grains, extreme earthiness. Similar to Great Lakesí beers. Very nice surprise!

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Perfectly clear amber orange color, poured with a fine tall head in a pilsener flute. Slightly fruity and gummy wheat and grain nose. Lemon and soap scents primarily, but thereís some melon scents as well that are kind of nice. Moderately hoppy sweet fruit flavor, clean and crisp on the tongue, with some light grain and sugar flavor. Wet palate.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Cask version at Winking Lizardís 6th Annual Real Ale Fest (03/22/14): Hazy golden color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied and creamy with flavors of grassy hops, bready malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short fruit hops aftertaste. Average overall.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Gold pour with 2-finger white head. Aroma was of heavy noble hops, citrus, some honey, malt, and fruit. Not a bad aroma. The flavor was a letdown after sniffing this one. I got some hopcit and slight fruit plus some phenols. Watery palate. Buying this one made me feel good, but drinking it did not.
