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.

2012-03-16. Crisp orange body with a small beige head. Mild aroma, light leafy earthy hops. 6+ Flavour is similar, light leafy earthy hops and mild resin, modest bitterness throughout. 6+ Average bodied palate. Decent but milder than my preference.

3fourths (8639) - 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 there’s 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.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
My Bottom Line:
Poorly-defined sugary cereals dominate this underhopped Pale Ale, yielding a rather boring pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy beige.
-Drinkability could be higher; this is sweetish for the style.
-In a blind tasting, I would not have billed this as a Pale Ale. The hops are that shy...
-There is little flavor nuance to speak of in here.

On tap at Acme Oyster Bar, New Orleans.

DSG (8610) - 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

DocLock (8593) - 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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has very musty pine and citrus note with some sweet grains and a hint of toffee. Flavor has musty grain and pine with a hint of sweet grain and toffee.

BVery (8064) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2012
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 (8051) - 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.

sebletitje (7887) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2009
pours golden, white head. Aroma of floral hops, pale malts, light yeasty presence, grainy and caramel. Taste of light malts, light notes of caramel, floral hops with some citrus notes, light biter finish. Still waiting to see anything groundbreaking coming from this brewery.

Hansen (7684) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2013
Light amber coloured and faint hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Nice soft aroma, faint floral notes. Sweet flavor, light, soft bitter finish. Creamy, dry texture.
