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.

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, itís too shy to be noticed.

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!

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.

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. Six pack from a convenience store enjoyed by the hotel pool, NOLA

a fruity slightly sweet blonde ale with a prickly mouthfeel. slightly lacking as a lot of Abita beers do, but not bad...

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.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Some hop aroma. White head. Clear golden coloured and hoppy with a little bitterness in a crisp and dry malt finish.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - 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.

12 oz. bottle tried at a few places around New Orleans- not hard to find at all when itís in season. Pours a clear pale yellow gold with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, fresh hops, citrus, and grass. Flavor follows suit, with a fresh, crisp character. Light bodied, with a good carbonation snap. Light, easy drinking, sessionable, and just fine on a hot New Orleans afternoon in May.

MartinT (8987) - 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.
