Homebrewer’s Tap Takeover collaboration with Zach Anderson. A near extinct beer style, the Kentucky Common originated in Louisville in the 1850s. The recipe for this easy drinking slightly sour brown ale is inspired by bourbon making.

Draught at ’Indie Alehouse Homebrewers Tap Takeover’. Pours a deep orange-amber with a spare lasting white head. Aroma is fruity, malty and a bit sour. Flavour’s the same, malty with some light sourness -- a bit watery. Average bodied. Good, didn’t knock my socks off.

neongolden (1231) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
(Draught at the brewpub, Sept 17 2013) Pours a pale brown, slightly murky, little white head. Aroma almost absent at first, just a tiny sour character and a little grain, but with warmth a woody bourbon character shows up. Flavour interesting, lightly sour grain at first, then charred wood, whiskey and grain, before fading back into sour at the finish. Body medium, average carb. An interesting beer, my first of the style, I can see the appeal. I think it could’ve been more sour, more complex, but still good as is.

Homebrewers tap takeover and produced at Indie Ale House. Dark brown and lacy. Cinnamon and bourbon, good drinkability. Smooth, a little like a Scotch beer, than the Kentucky commons I’ve had, which had more bugs and cherry in them.

2013-09-17. Lightly hazy dark copper amber body with a tiny head. Aroma is mild but pleasant, malty with a light tang to it, but more pleasantly so than that description sometimes implies. Flavour is mild up front, sort of malty with a light tangy sourness to it. Light caramel quality to it with just a bit of an English quality to it. Smooth average bodied palate, carbonation. Enjoyable. Intended to be more sour according to the brewer, I think that would have added a layer of depth to it for sure, but I enjoyed it as is. On tap at Indie Alehouse Homebrewers Tap Takeover event, Toronto Beer Week
