Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: WVbeergeek on 02-25-2008

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.

Appearance:
Pale amber color, hazy, few particles. Lots of small carbonation rising. Thick rocky head.

Aroma:
Lightly citrus aroma, sweet malts, some fruitiness.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Bready malts up front, biscuit, slight toasted. Mild hop bitterness, citrusy-floral. Finish is semi-dry, a little sweet. Body is light-medium, crisp, smooth, refreshing.

Overall:
It's a good American Pale Ale, but a little dull.
