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.

Draft. Clear light amber with an off white head. Faint aroma of caramel, grain and light herbal tea. Flavor is malty mostly with a faint hop bitterness. Medium to light body with average carbonation. No real flaws, just a bit boring.

On tap in a tulip ..... Clear, light amber with with a white head that dissipates quickly; although, there is some hang on the glass. There is not a lot of body to this beer, but it has a sweet flavor with a slight hop bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ez sajnos nekem nem ízlett. Pedig nagyon kedves volt a kínálás hozzá. Volt valami - számomra - fura savanykás mellékíze, emiatt nem szerettem. (Még érzelmileg is közelebb állhatott volna hozzám: 1996-ban voltam Lexingtonban) ;-)
