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.

another so so offering from abita brewing co, at least it’s for the good cause. pretty golden appearance w/ foamy white head. malty nose, somewhat bready, this brew is medium bodied. similar flavor, it’s not terrible, but nothing too special.

Pours a murky lager like golden with a crop of white head. Nose is faintly hoppy, with some sweet malts a little bland. Not much better in the flavor department. Some hop notes with a subtle citrusy thing goin’ on. Comes up way short.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2006
Slightly hazy golden color with a thin white head on top. Some hints of grassy and citrusy hops in the aroma. Flavor is extremely watery with just a slight hint of citrus. There’s nothing really special about this beer and it is about to end up poured down the drain.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottled, BB 4/3/06. Poured a clear, dim amber with a tall cap of frothy white head. Nose had notes of citrus and flowery hops, wheat, and bready pils malts. Flavor was a unpleasantly-constructed tapestry of grainy wheat, corn, sour lemon rind, bread, and tacky caramel sweetness... not bad elements in and of themselves, but did not work well here. Lighter-bodied. Palate was all over the place with sour notes, wheaty tartness, soap, and bitterness... again did not flow. Great cause, though.

Bottle. Very mild hop nose. Cloudy yellow. Subdued flavor, touch of bitterness and a sour finish. Drinkable palate, some bite.

Sample Tasting - Golden hue, white head. Citrus, hops aroma. Citrus fruit, grass, grain, flavors. Hoppy finish.

Sample at Montgomery brewfest. Looks like your average beer. Blah aroma, blah taste, and blah beer. Boring.

cbfobes (2149) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Poured from bottle, appearance is fine with nice white head, hardly no aroma to it, maybe a touch of hops and grapefruit, taste is nothing special, wouldn’t buy just to drink it that’s for sure.

jb (2053) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Well nothing really wrong with this, a bit bland and lacking in basics - nose, palate, appearance, but it is drinkable and balanced to a point. Nose is grassy, barnyard. Appearance is a bit of a hazy gold. Palate is a bit metallic, predominantly balanced lightly towards hops. Thanks for the trade Ron.

Mild hoppy aroma, gold, cloudy, foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Medium body, thin texture, avg carbonation. Slight bitterness. Not offensive but nothing memorable.
