COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentucky Ale is a marriage between two classic beer styles, Irish Red Ale and English Pale Ale. The Kentucky Ale mashing program uses: • the finest 2-row imported Harrington malt, • select caramel malt varieties grown both domestically and abroad, • a pinch of wheat malt for a smooth, creamy taste. Varieties of the English hops East Kent Goldings and Fuggles impart a spicy yet soft, floral aroma without a harsh, bitter aftertaste. These ale hops are used to balance the sweetness of the malt and are an important flavor component of Kentucky Ale. Light copper in color, the unique body and character of Kentucky Ale is heavily influenced by the water, drawn from aquifers in the limestone underlying the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky.

GreatDane1632 (297) - Louisiana, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Drank on draft from the Local Spot in the Cincinnati Airport -- Not much to say honestly. Tasted like a Light American Lager. Nothing special at all. This beer didn’t even make me want me to order something better. Just apathy all around.

12oz bottle. Aroma is slightly skunky with some malt? Appearance is a light copper. Taste is very bland. A very drinkable beer, but there is just not much to it. Overall, a miller lite has more flavor, which is sad, cause I want to like this brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by my father in law. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor has moderately sweet malt, light caramel, light florals and grass . Soft on the palate, very smooth. Just not much at all to write about with this.

Slabe, przecietne amber ale. Lekko metne, ze srednia piana ale malo trwala. Lekko tez metne, praktycznie minimalnie. Kolor bursztynowy. W smaku slodowe ale umiarkowanie, bardzo delikatny aromat i rozwodniony nieco smak. Lekkie i pilane piwo.
