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.

12 oz bottle. light amber pour and avg white head, leaving an oily film atop the brew. aromas of both wet- and dry-hopping, as well as the mixture of woods you would find in a deciduous forest. mild citrus appeal in the aroma as well. my tastebuds see this as a mildly hoppy yet smooth ale. hop presence is in the taste, as well as on the palate, but the flavor isnt too well defined. nonetheless, it is a very drinkable beer with a slight mineral zing and a note of spicy hops. good beer, but i dont understand the low rating. rumor has it its about to undergo a name change into a pale ale.

Rather uneventful beer, but it was for a good cause so I tried it. And for that cause, I would buy more of it if it would help out the cause.

Mild lagerfied maltiness. Grass clusters with caramel. Some citrus notes, but rather uneventful. ITs a cool cause but not a very cool brew.

meh, bland and kinda boring. bought it more because they give profits to katrina victims than for the flavor. some lemon and some grassy flavors, some perfumey aromas. but blah.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a nice clear gold, topped by a quarter inch or so of cream colored foam. Okay head retention, a little lacing. Some honey-sweet malt and mild fruit in the aroma. Tasty but short-lived flavor - with honey, pear, and drier toasted malt. These give way to a nearly vapid finish and dull, lifeless mouthfeel. A hint of citrus hops in the aftertaste is, again, short-lived. Served chilled but not cold in a Belgian goblet.

After reading the reviews here, I was not really expecting too much from this brew, but instead I got a beer that I wasnt quite expecting. The beer was a lot hoppier than I had expected. The colour looked as i thought it would, but the head was pretty nice. The taste then comes off as smooth, but a little bitter with noticeable hops all through it. My father thought it was watery, but I felt that it was quite alright in that respect.

12 oz bottle from Woodmans on Gammon Road in Madison, WI (October 2006) drunk in mid-October at the parents house from a pint glass, bit above fridge temperature. Translucent to clear amber-gold color, bubbling action in the body, with a moderate smooth-bubbled off-white head that decays quickly....doughy, lightly spicy aroma, hints of pepper and oregano but mostly its slushy ill-defined pale malts....vague dry grassy hops struggle futilely to find a presence amdist watery brackish malts....strong, somewhat artificial carbonation and heavy filtration lend to an unappelaing soda-like, metallic finish. OK I feel good at the 1.00 that went to charity for buying a 6er of this turkey, but I dont feel bad about leaving the other 5 bottles to my less-discerning parents to consume.

Sampled at Broudys Holiday Beerfest,Jacksonville FL 12/2/2006. Tasting this beer amongst a lineup of world class beers put it at a real disadvantage. It was OK, and a much better choice than a macro, but unimpressive and ultimately mediocre. The style itself really doesnt offer much in my opinion. Refreshing, drinkable, forgetable.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Pours a clear, light amber color and is topped by a frothy, initially two-finger thick, pale, tan tinted, white colored head. The aroma is a mix of light caramel malts and spicy hops. Notes of sweet citrus and light herbs intermingle with notes of toasty grain, hints of toffee and caramelized malt. Nice light aroma that strikes a good balance between hops and malt.

Toasty malt notes up front lead to tart citrus hop notes in the middle. The tartness caries through to the finish where it is joined by some more malty toasted grain notes. Quite easy drinking, the beer is quite light on the palate and really just flows down the throat. A light malt sweetness lingers on in the finish, but really this beer does not leave much of a lasting impression on my tastebuds. A light bitterness weaves its way throughout this beer, but at times is really not that noticeable. In the end this is a light, clean, easy drinking ale that I could easily pass up for something with a bit more character, but would certainly not turn my nose up at it given a macro alternative.
