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.

Bitter aromas, medium bitters that don't linger. Not a bad drop for 4$ a stubble. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

The appearance was a pale golden with a short lived head. Nice grain smell with a touch of floral hop. The flavor was great, not overpowering, smooth, and flavorful with a nice hop kick. Very easy to drink beer, could easily down six in one sitting.

I’m definitely against the grain on this one. Could have been the surroundings, but had this at a crawfish boil and in the afternoon sun, a 6pk of this was really enjoyable. A big floral aroma, a touch medicinal, with a fruity hop punch. Very fresh tasting. I’m almost afraid to buy another 6 pk; it may not be anywhere near this good, jusging by the ratings.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Pours golden w/ a shallow, spritzy froth. Aroma is slight w/ malt and spice. Light to medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are bright, crisp, clean, and slightly fruity with a slight hop character. Finish is wet w/ a perfect bttering. Overall: I like it. Well ballanced, complex, delicious.

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best by 9/27/2012. Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass as well. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, pine, herbal, floral, caramel, honey, and bread. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of grapefruit, orange, pine, herbal, grass, floral, caramel, bread, and cracker. Lingering notes of citrus, herbal, pine, cracker, and caramel on the finish for a short bit. Good flavor balance; with a good bitterness/malt balance as well. Feels watered down though. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all after the finish. Extremely easy to drink. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Feels a bit watered down; but still has a good hop and malt flavor profile. An enjoyable offering, very sessionable.

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2012
12oz bottle of Abita Restoration Pale Ale from Wegman’s, King of Prussia, PA. Pours a pale gold with a loose white head; fresh hoppy aroma; light and fresh hoppy taste with a touch of citrus, gentle to start but exploding in the mouth; leaving a long dry finish with a touch of sweetness. Very good indeed, perhaps better described as a Light IPA.
