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.

Single bottle. Pale copper with about one-finger of head that lingers. Minimal lacing. Nose is fresh and hoppy. Highly carbonated. From a promising aroma, something is missing prior to the somewhat astringent finish. Put differently, think of going from foreplay directly to cuddling and pillow talk.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Dry, resiny, fruity. A bit thin on the aftertaste. A little like Sierra Nevada in flavor. Better than I remembered when I first tried it.

CPH2200 (330) - DENMARK - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle 5.2% abv. Promising hoppy aroma. Taste with citrus notes but a watery mouthfeel so it ends up rather dissapointing. A shame.

Poobah (325) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Hoppy, floral nose. Amber color with moderate head retention. Crisp mouthfeel. The finish is layered with sweetness and slight bitterness. Abita needs to make this one of their staples.

Bottle at Abita Brew Pub. A pretty tasty beer with some hop and fruit flavors. Not bad.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Poured a light copper to golden color with a big white frothy head. Aroma is grass, floral, caramel, and a little citrus. Taste is a mild hoppiness that follows with a toastiness and a metallic aftertaste. Not bad not good but refreshing.

andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2007
12 oz bottle. light amber pour and avg white head, leaving an oily film atop the brew. aromas of both wet- and dry-hopping, as well as the mixture of woods you would find in a deciduous forest. mild citrus appeal in the aroma as well. my tastebuds see this as a mildly hoppy yet smooth ale. hop presence is in the taste, as well as on the palate, but the flavor isnít too well defined. nonetheless, it is a very drinkable beer with a slight mineral zing and a note of spicy hops. good beer, but i donít understand the low rating. rumor has it itís about to undergo a name change into a pale ale.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Enjoyed out of the bottle from Jeffís Spirits on Main. Nose and taste similar to an American Pale, very nice hop flavor. Also had a hint of sorghum flavor (sort of a sour fruitiness). This was easy to drink when cold and pretty tasty.

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2010
(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Has a blonde color and thin head. Has a thin streaky lace. Aroma is of grassy hops, and a bready malt. Tastes of medium to heavy bitterness and is lightly sweet. Medium body and average carbonation.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Sampled from bottle. This ale pours clear golden brown with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma is robust with toasted malts and honey. Flavor is refreshingly bitter and finishes suprisingly crisp & clean. Toast & floral hops are most notable. Medium-bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Quite drinkable. Drink some today for the cause!
