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.

Grass, grains, and spiced aroma. Flavors of toast, toffee, and a hint of melted butter. Finish is herbal spiced. Has that Abita basement dust quality that I just dont care for, and Iím starting to see a pattern with other offerings as well. You could do worse however.

Draft at Toad in the Hole. Foggy deep yellow with thin white foam. Herbal, green grassy scent. Pleasant, light tartness highlights over a toasty malt base. Very dry and refreshing. This is a proper pale ale with nothing out of balance; I think itís tragically underrated.

Ottima pale al gusto e al naso leggermente fruttati con un amaro equilibrato al palato. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is floral and hoppy, and the taste is similar. Has a very crisp, light taste and not too strong of a bite. Very pleasantly surprised by this one, nothing special but itís very drinkable. Recommended. 5% abv.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - AUG 25, 2008
Bottle. Not so good. Watery mouthfull, lacking in depth, void of exciting or challenging flavour, no real finish to speak of. Quite an uneventful "restoration" this turned out to be.

Pours clear copper with a hint of orange. The aroma is that of citrus, hops, and caramel malt. Very earthy flavor to it.

Poobah (350) - 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.

Fizzy, Lemon, Honey, tastes sort of like an ale and a lager mixed together. Round kind of like a Milwaukee beer but also strong flavor of carbonation. Slight hint of hops. I even taste a hint of adjuncts like rice. Probably want to steer away from this beer. The more I drink it, the more it tastes like seltzer water.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 10, 2006
The aroma wasnít particularly strong, but it had some nice hoppy-ness. The color was a light copper, with a white head that didnít last very long. The flavor was on the sweet side, with a much less bitter finish than I would have expected. The mouthfeel was light. A good, but not great beer.
