Restoration Pale Ale is made with Pale, Lager, Crystal and Cara Pils malted barley. It is liberally hopped and dry hopped with American Cascade and fermented with California Ale yeast. The end result is a brilliant gold ale with a rich body, mild bitterness and a snappy fresh citrus hop flavor and aroma.

Poured from bottle to pint glass

A-Pours a vibrant gold/dark yellow with a white head that doesn't lace as much as I would like it to. The look of this beer just makes me want to drink it.

S-Lots of citrus/fruity aromas hit you first. A smooth and complex malty smell is a little lighter. Not to sure of all the grains in this, but the smell makes me want to take a drink.

T/M-Excellent! A mix of pale malt and citrus fruit flavors tickles my tongue. As the beer finishes, the hops take over with a nice pine flavor that gives the beer a great pale finish. The body is just perfect and the carbonation is spot on.

This is one of the better beers I have ever had. The only complaint I have, and this is being picky, is the head doesn't lace as much as I would like it. This beer looks, smells, and tastes good. Pick it up, you won't be disappointed.

Cheers...
