COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale® is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale® is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky’s finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Launched in 2006, it has grown to become the flagship beer of the premier name in barrel-aged beers: Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company.

Dark orange. Vanilla, whisky, caramel, toffee and yeasts make up the flavor. Really good on tap, even better in a sniffer! Best of all, it’s smooth and creamy!

One of my favorites! I love the hint of Bourbon you taste on the finish...everyone should at least give it a try! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jow (2776) - New York, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Tap at the Gingerman. Pours pale golden brown. Nose of caramel and bourbon. Tastes of bourbon through and through. Also vanilla, caramel, oak, and a lot like cream soda. It sweet but not cloying. Interesting but one glass is enough

On tap at Oxford, OH. Pours orange with a long lasting white head. Nose is of caramel, tropical fruit, vanilla and cacao. Body is medium, crisp. Taste is funky yeast, vanilla, alcohol, topical fruit, citrus, bourbon, and cacao. Finish is medium and semi-dry. Interesting brew.

Drank out the bottle, smooth taste with subtle notes of vanilla and bourbon. Little to no after taste.

Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Pours a red with a quickly fading white head. Aroma has lots of vanilla, which helps mask the whiskey impressions. Taste is a balanced mixture of vanilla and whiskey. Some oak undertones. Smooth like liquor and surprisingly easy to drink. Alcohol content in here jumps out at you. This one is straight forward and doesn’t hide anything. If you like whiskey, this one is just fine.

I tried this at the American Craft beer Fest in Boston and this is by far one of the best beers I have ever had. The bourbon flavor gives this ale such a smooth taste. It should be drank from a snifter and enjoyed with a cigar. Perfect beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer gets a perfect score for me. The perfect blend of beer and bourbon makes this a easy to drink with a smooth finish. I have not had anything better.

I heard the taste described as bourbon with water. I found this to be accurate. If you like bourbon then you might like this beer, if you don’t, like me, then you will probably not like this beer.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Not the best beer. A little bourbon but not much. Maybe I just hate everything from Lexington.
