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.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Mix a 6 from Southern View County Market. Not tons flavor going on with this. It is not bad but it floated in between summer hot weather beer and a standard pale ale in flavor and didnít work for me. Serving: Bottle

Black Hills Beer Fest - Light golden pour with a small white head. Light aroma is malty and faintly grassey. Tastes of lager malt, corn, and grass. Syrupy sweet. Bummer.

Smells yeasty and tart, with mild corn-n-hops bitterness, plus an unpleasant, stagnant-water funk underneath it all. Looks decent, with a valiant head atop a rather apathetic looking liquid. Tastes no-frills, as basic as you can get with a Pale Ale. Little bit of malt, little bit of citric, floral hops, right-down-the-middle average. Spiky, fizzy texture, but creamy on the finish. Good bridge beer between macro crap and craft. (5/18/09)

Tap @ Akkurat. Clear golden with a thick soapy off white head that turns a bit porous and leavessome lacings. Aroma is pale malty with straw, some citrus and a good piney hoppiness that turns a bit perfumy. But suddenly comes a quite unpleasant funky smell of fart. Taste is slightly sweet fruity with grapefruit, mandarines, peach and floral and grassy hops. Gets slightly watery. Body is medium to a bit thin with soft carbonation.

Tap @ Akkurat. Clear golden with a thick soapy off white head that turns a bit porous and leaves some lacings. Aroma is pale malty with straw and some citrus and a good piney and slight perfumy note. But then comes a note of fart that takes over. Ouch. Taste is slight sweet fruity with grapefruit, mandarines, peach and floral and grassy hops. Gets just slight watery. Body is medium to a bit thin with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gift from SJ. Not a horrible beer, but what I am noticing with this company is they donít go the extra mile. Everything is just ok and too vague. Some notes of grain, hop and bread. Itís just ok. They always look better than they taste.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Iím not a fan of pale ales, so this is not my favorite Abita beer. I have had both the regular and unfiltered varieties. The unfiltered was from a beer festival, and, as always, I was intrigued by the complexity of the flavors. Because of the strong hops, Rob described the unfiltered beer as being "like eating a flower." This is much better than my typical response for other pale ales: "Itís like when you get bug spray in your mouth." The filtered is less hoppy and pretty good for a pale ale.

@ Party Town / Bellvue KY hazy dirty orange, 1/2" head w/ good retention, stripes of lace. Aroma is pleasant hops. Taste is mild caramel malt that is somehow over-run by equally mild hops. Iím not saying there is nothing here, only that all is understated. Actually very sessionable, but would quickly grow tiresome for lack of flavor.
