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.

Bottle. Clear gold with an amber hue. Appeared to be a lot of carbonation in the pour but the off white head quickly disappeared. Biscuit and citrus present in the aroma but there was also a slight musty smell. Very bland initial flavor eventually gives way to some bitterness in the finish and a sweet citrus taste lingers. Softly carbonated with a watery texture. Easy drinking and refreshing but lacking any solid flavor.

I really was not impressed with this stuff. It was fairly light colored. Medium to light bodied. A good bit of carbonation. The most memorable thing about it was the hops. And even the hops werenít that special. There was the slightest metallic edge to the bitter, but it didnít stick around too long. Turbodog is still the only Abita beer I really liked a lot.

Floral notes, crisp if somewhat typical pale ale. Good, but does not stand out from the crowd ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought this in a party pack. Amber color with a thin white head. Sweet citrus aroma. Like orange peels with sour dough notes. Light-bodied sweet malty taste. Itís kind of watery. Clean finish.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. The color is a pale amber with a finger of foamy white head and some slight lacing left on the glass. The smell is a little sweet but hard to really get a handle on. There is a slight buttery aroma with some malty grain aroma hiding way back there. The taste is grassy with a sweet malt flavor that is balancing things out. There is a nice bit of caramel in the flavor that holds up a bit to some hop flavor that splashes here and there. The feel of this beer is light and goes down easy. There is a nice smooth silky like way this goes down and still hits you a bit at the end.

Pours a light golden color. Smells a bit hoppy. Taste is underwhelming. Nothing much more to say about this beer. Disappointing compared to other Abita beers Iíve tried.

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.

Aroma: lightly citrusy, faint hops; Appearance: golden straw with fluffy head that dissipates quickly; some lacing; Taste: smooth, but not much personality; Palate: light body with long, slightly bitter finish; Overall: decent beer if youíve just finished working in the yard -- otherwise, pretty forgettable.
