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®.

htnicholas (50) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
355ml Bottle at the Hilton in Lexington Kentucky. Pours a clear amber with a thin head and no lacing. Almost no aroma. Light hints of malt and carmel. Thin mouthfeel and somewhat over-carbonated. Up front is mild malt sweetness and a hint of hops. Very little hop character. The malt flavors come thru in the taste but in a diluted and particularly boring way. The finish has a very slight hop bitterness but is faint and dissipates quickly. Very average undistinguished beer that has the saving grace of being unoffensive and drinkable. The beer is a C-minus. Drink only if it's a hot summer day and your only alternative is one of the macro-brew lite beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from a 6pack bought at Home Bargains Gateshead for a fiver in a tasting glass. Poured amber with a thin white head which disappeared. Sweetish beer with a bit of a cola flavour. One dimensional and unimpressive

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle from Seijo Ishi store. Malty nose, toasted, fruity, brown sugar, and a few bread crumbs. Clear orange/amber color, fine head. Caramel initial, some cola flavor emerges, gets candyish in mid palate, and then a thin, flat finish. Medium body. Overly sweet, fairly one dimensional, but easy to drink.

Golden pour. Thin white head. Sweet smell and even sweeter taste. Kinda funky and off but Beijing can do that to beers.

Cunningham (6054) - 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.

Maxbier (714) - 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 (3088) - 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
