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.

bhensonb (14764) - 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 (13811) - 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
