>> Clear, deep amber brown pour. Tan, thicker foam. Nose is really odd: cabbage, fermenting green beans. Taste is tart, earth, soil, lemon. Strange, but not gross. Mild sour mash character coupled with earthy grain. Just looking up the style Kentucky Common (this is my first one trying I think), I don’t if it is possible to make one that will taste good.

Aroma of apple and bourbon almost like a hot tottie. Taste was subdued and had a rye and dry finish to it.

On tap at the brewery, several months ago. Man, I hope they bring this one back again. It’s damn close to my favorite FS beer. Nice brown pour with copper tints and a modest filmy head. Nose was understated oaky tannins and nice tart fruit. Nice mouthfeel, perhaps a trace oily. But the oak melded really nicely with the bright tartness of the apple (also got some more muted cherry notes, and was surprised to find they weren’t among the fruit here), almost like a second tier New Glarus fruit beer (which is, y’know, pretty high praise).

Tasted at the RRBF. Clean burnt garnet brown pour with a wispy tan head. Buttery notes in the aroma with a light malty sweetness and touch of apple skin. Some apple skin in the flavor with a touch of Bourbon and spicy grain. Light diacetyl shows in the finish with a malty sweetness.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 27, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy with a frothy top fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty and sour. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of tart sour mild hops funk bourbon and fruity. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
