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.

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.

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.

(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!

Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Poured from bottle. White/off white head that poured large but quickly dissipated. Light citrus aroma, but nothing besides that. Light palate, citrus taste balanced with hops. Overall not a bad pale ale, just not much going on.

Easy drinker. Pretty gold color. Didnít smell the citrus but did taste some. Big head with good lacing. Mild is a great way to describe the hoppyness of character. Good for 1st timers trying to get away from BCM.

Stellaaaa (258) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Pours a golden yellow with a medium-sized white head. It has a faint aroma of grapefruit and hops, although the scent is definitely not too strong. The taste, likewise, is like that of a slightly weaker IPA with hints of grapefruit and malt, but nothing too strong. The palate is a bit weak. Not a bad beer, but not one of the best pale ales Iíve had.

Single bottle. Clear golden pour, big off-white head with some serious lacing. Aroma of grass, citrus, a little pepper. Taste starts sweet, then hits the expected citrus/hops notes. Not too bitter. Medium-bodied. as long as youíre not looking for huge hops from your IPA, this is quite good.

Aroma has some malts, light hops, and some toffee detectable. Light amber pour, white head. Flavor is sweet kings Hawaiian rolls, peppery hops, fruit. Body is light, I like it. This is a good beer.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2009 Malt and earthy hops on the nose, foamy head and high carbonation. Very drinkable with some decent bitterness. Finishes up clean. Overall a pretty good beer.
