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®.

Cunningham (5673) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Clear dark golden color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Toffee, caramel and a bit fruity aroma. Medium (+) body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Toffee, caramel and mild fruity flavor. Nothing special going on here. Nothing wrong either.
[Bottle from a trade with Meilby]

12 oz bottle - pours clear amber golden color. Smell is red malts, golden wheat and run of the mill beer yeast. Taste is pretty much the same. Unimpressive

Maxbier (699) - Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Clear copper with thin white head. Light malt and creamed corn aroma. Bland malt flavor with some earthy hop bitter to make it taste like an ale (vs malt soup), Hints of wet paper but not offensive enough to spit it out. Overall it tastes like a cheap beer.

drjay44 (2969) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with some lacing, over a hazy particle laden amber (SRM 9) body......nose is light toffee/caramel, egg whites, light herbal hops....taste is slightly sweet with toffee/caramel notes, light cereal malts, finishing with a light hops bitterness.....mouth feel, light watery body, no alcohol, fizzy carbonation. This is a simple Amber, with fairly prominent unclean flaws. It could be a poor quality storage of the bottle results in a not very good beer, as opposed to the base recipe being off. BJCP 5/1/9/3/4

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2015
5/17/15. 12oz bottle from a random gas station in TN. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Mildly skunked aroma - doesn’t appear to be fully brown glass and who knows how long it sat at the gas station, I guess? Anyway, mild maltiness and a hint of skunk, reminds me of Beck’s Dark or something like that. Mild malty flavor, hints at caramel, mild skunk. Meh.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours copper with a foamy white head. Sweet malty aroma, some toffee. Earthy hop character. Quite mild in flavour. Mostly caramel and a little cocoa, floral hop bitterness at the back of the palate. Okay but nothing special

JonMoore (2019) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle from Dublin Airport, slightly hazy with slim white head. Malty, fruity aroma. Taste is malty, cloying sweet, caramel. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Won’t be bothering again.
