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.

Bottle, thanks Deepsouth!! Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma is of malts,hops and something funky. Flavor is a tad better than the aroma. Malty and hops are present...no complexity but as with most Abita beers I find it prett smooth.

DocLock (10465) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Gold pour with 2-finger white head. Aroma was of heavy noble hops, citrus, some honey, malt, and fruit. Not a bad aroma. The flavor was a letdown after sniffing this one. I got some hopcit and slight fruit plus some phenols. Watery palate. Buying this one made me feel good, but drinking it did not.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines, Dalry. Pours clear golden with a thick white head. Aromas of lime peel and resinous hops. Taste is lime, chalky minerals, bitter, resinous. Oily texture, thin on the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Clear orange pour with a minimal white head. Nose is bready caramel malt. Palate is a bit light, carbonation is a bit low. Taste is bready malts with a hint of citrus. Just okay.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Clear golden amber, moderate white head. Soft floral and fruity hop aroma, perhaps lychee. Perfectly balanced clean malts and mild aromatic hops-- nice for its simple drinkability. I actually thought this was an american pale ale rather than a golden/blond.

Multiple samples for fun at amateur beer tasting night. Pours a clear straw with a two-finger white head. Not much retention or lace. Aroma is raw grain, white sugar, raw oatmeal. Taste is brown sugar oatmeal, raw grains, extreme earthiness. Similar to Great Lakes beers. Very nice surprise!

12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, floral and grassy hops, a splash of citrus. There wasnt much going on with this.

phaleslu (9926) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2010
12 oz. bottle tried at a few places around New Orleans- not hard to find at all when its in season. Pours a clear pale yellow gold with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, fresh hops, citrus, and grass. Flavor follows suit, with a fresh, crisp character. Light bodied, with a good carbonation snap. Light, easy drinking, sessionable, and just fine on a hot New Orleans afternoon in May.
