COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first brew produced by Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co, Kentucky Ale® is described as a marriage between two classic beer styles, Irish Red Ale and English Pale Ale. With a light amber color, Kentucky Ale owes its body and character to select imported malts and a pinch of wheat malt for a rich, smooth taste. This brew is placed into bourbon barrels to make the brewery’s flagship Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®.

Bottle - medium amber clear pour with a compact white head that quickly fell to skim the surface, good carbonation. Very mild earthy hop nose, almost non-existent. Flavor is similarly light with indistinct malt and light earthy hop flavor..watery and soft. Nothing horrible but nothing about this beer stands out as above average.

Bottle... Deep yellow color with a nice off-white head. Some bubbles rose to the top. Herbal, with some sweet malt in the aroma. Smooth taste. Some hops, but not a lot. Overall very decent...ty rayboy

Thanks to footballguy TD32 for this local brew of his... The pour is a medium/dark amber that forms a decent head, but it fades quickly. Smell is pretty average, nothing to make me saw, "WHAT THE ####!". Taste is decent, light malts mostly. The rest of the brew is slightly above average. I wouldn’t seek it out, but a wouldn’t turn it down for cheap.

Pours a light-hazed, pale amber with a short-lived head. Doughy, lemony yeasts give way to some sweeter citrus aromas. The same scene is played out in the flavor with some bready sourdough leading into a fruity, mildly bitter finish of hopcit. Crisp. Not bad.

hammerbeck (101) - Kentucky, USA - JAN 12, 2007
This very English brown ale is surprisingly drinkable. It presents a nice, but quickly disappearing, head and a mellow brown color. The aroma has faint hints of hoppy floralness. But the real pleasure is drinking it. It has all the good flavor of an Irish red and full-bodied-ness of an English amber.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Golden pour with rocky white head that lingers. This ale has a mildly fruity nose but so mild as to be indistinct. The flavor was a mild caramel maltiness and some VERY mild hoppiness, mainly floral in nature. Middle of the road in every aspect. I would not seek these out again.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated copper brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty and dough. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops dough and mild caramel. An OK brew just nothing special.

Tap. Deep amber colur with a thin off-white head. Soft malty aroma, light crystal and some toast with a lovely EKG spiciness ove the top. Light berry esters make an appearance as well. Lovely balance of malt and hops. Woody and spicy hop flavour with a touch of minerally character making an appearance as well. Much better than I expected and a nice sessionable ale. The bottled version is nowhere near as good, but on tap it’s a lovely bitter.

12 oz. bottle, from trade at the Flossmoor RateBeer event. Geez., I think this is only my second new state this year, grumble, grumble. Well, to the beer: Nice looking pour, a burnished brass under a disappearing head, but a touch light for its style, settles out with very few bubbles. Nice ale smell, but with a touch of camphor. Taste is noce malts, a hint somewhere of cola, and a very slight ale fruitiness. Hops are indisitinct. I did get this in a "white elephant trad," and there’s no date, so it may be aged. Enjoyable, but mostly average.
