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.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2008
Hazy dull straw. Woody, slightly lemony hop nose with light pale malts. Some wood and tropical fruit taste. Fairly low bitterness. A bit watery in the finish, and despite some nice hop notes the malts never amount to much.

brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
A: A light golden color, thick white head, almost no lacing. S: Very light on all fronts. A slight citrus presence, and some malt. T: Almost no hop flavor. Lots of malt with a bit of bitterness on the finish. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Not terrible, but not good either.

bhensonb (15088) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Tasting this after jambalaya. Works well with Cajun. Clean aroma, but hard to pin down. The finish is bitter hop. A very clean drink. The principal aspect is a very good mouth feel. A bit tangy. The finish suggests another.

DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 28, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Re-rate 10/7/12: Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden with a medium white head. Pleasant floral and citric hops aroma with a bit of bready and slightly biscuity malt. Flavor has light malt sweetness and crisp floral/citric hops bitterness. Light-medium-bodied. A nice one. It seems I like it better than I did 5 years ago. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

Bottle sample at a tasting. Hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, a bit of malt and a bit of citrus. Flavor of sweet malt, a bit fruity, with a mild and quite weak dry finish with hops and a bit of citrus. Body is too light. Rather boring. 6/3/5/2/11=2.7

3.2
djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is hoppy with citrus. The taste is very bitter with citrus and pine and a smooth finish. Easy to drink a good pale ale from Abita.

2.5
Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Bottle. Poured a clear amber with a huge frothy white head that lasted. Good balanced malt and hop and grain aroma. Medium body with thin texture. Light sweet grainy flavor in a light finish. To soft of a close.

Lubiere (13780) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2011
A blonde ale with a thick off white head. In aroma, a pleasant hoppy caramel malt, nicely hoppy, caramel malt, nicely pungeant. In mouth, a clean caramel malt with grassy notes, German hops, a tad on the boring side. On tap at Datz, Jan. 8 2011.

2.6
Drake (13647) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a golden amber color with a large head. Good head retention and fair lacing. Aroma of sweet malts and muted hops. Taste is leafy hops and sweet sugary malts. Not much going on here. Medium bodied.

2.6
BeerandBlues2 (13210) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 11, 2005
12-oz. bottle. Pours a clean golden honey with tiny bubbles fastly rising to the surface where a tiny frothy white head quickly diminishes to a film with lined lacing. Sweet yeast and malt (straw, meal) aroma flanked by some fruity hop notes, apple and grape. Sweet light malt and yeast body with a low bitter and acidic fruity hop finish. Light bodied and fizzy, almost creamy palate. This beer would make a great treat on a hot day to quench a thirst.
