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.

rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Draught at the Abita Brewpub, Abita Springs, LA. Clear pale golden colour with a small white head. Sweet fruity hops and mild sweet malt in a very balanced aroma. Mild sweet hops and caramel malt in an incredibly well balanced flavour. Tasty and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (7780) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2011
12oz bottle from the Party Sampler variety 12-pack. Thin white head, nice hazyish dark orange color. Not much strength in the aroma, tastes sort of watered down, although this does make it quite refreshing and drinkable. Mild hops, almost a yeasty lagery taste. Carbonation is a bit too soft. If this does have character, it’s too shy to be noticed.

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 28, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Re-rate 10/7/12: Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden with a medium white head. Pleasant floral and citric hops aroma with a bit of bready and slightly biscuity malt. Flavor has light malt sweetness and crisp floral/citric hops bitterness. Light-medium-bodied. A nice one. It seems I like it better than I did 5 years ago. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

Bottle sample at a tasting. Hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, a bit of malt and a bit of citrus. Flavor of sweet malt, a bit fruity, with a mild and quite weak dry finish with hops and a bit of citrus. Body is too light. Rather boring. 6/3/5/2/11=2.7

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Clear orange pour with a minimal white head. Nose is bready caramel malt. Palate is a bit light, carbonation is a bit low. Taste is bready malts with a hint of citrus. Just okay.

DuffMan (7338) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Clear golden amber, moderate white head. Soft floral and fruity hop aroma, perhaps lychee. Perfectly balanced clean malts and mild aromatic hops-- nice for its simple drinkability. I actually thought this was an american pale ale rather than a golden/blond.

Ibrew2or3 (7260) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Pours gold with thin white head. The aroma is earthy, a bit skunky and then spicy to citrus hops. The taste is on the bright side with sharp acidic notes then becoming more sweetened with malt and mixing with spicy hops, some citrus hops, a touch of floral hops and then faint graininess into the finish.

Ughsmash (7251) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottled, BB 4/3/06. Poured a clear, dim amber with a tall cap of frothy white head. Nose had notes of citrus and flowery hops, wheat, and bready pils malts. Flavor was a unpleasantly-constructed tapestry of grainy wheat, corn, sour lemon rind, bread, and tacky caramel sweetness... not bad elements in and of themselves, but did not work well here. Lighter-bodied. Palate was all over the place with sour notes, wheaty tartness, soap, and bitterness... again did not flow. Great cause, though.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours a clear golden with a thin ring of white head. Semi-sweet grainy, mildly floral aroma. Starts with a hint of sugar, some dry, full crystal malt and noble hops with a dry grainy finish. A fairly bland and uninteresting beer.
