3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Old Chicago in Lexington.
Pours fairly clear golden yellow with white head. Aroma is of light bourbon. Flavor is sweet and bourbony, but not really that interesting. Mouthfeel is about normal. Overall, it’s pretty good, but this is not really a beer that is much better aged in bourbon.

A little bourbon on the nose, but more butter rum. Rather odd, super vanilla-y flavor, like dry cream soda.

Slightly smoky big vanilla nose. Creamy vanilla flavors. Simple but to the point. Like soft serve vanilla ice cream.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’ve already had one beer from these folks, this one one did not let me down. Bright orange colour with a medium sized head. Lacing dissapears rather quickly. but there is a small creamy froth. aroma is straight up whiskey on the nose, toffee- reminds me of the "Knot" whiskey- something you might want to chill if you’re sipping. Irish whiskey. flavours are alcohol on the back of the tongue all the way home, otherwise, oak ,smoke and bourbon, toffee ginger and brown sugar. What a great way to end this trade from Louis. Thanks brother! :)

got this bottle in lexington. i laughed so hard when i smelled this. it’s so awful. so much corn. andrew laughed too. what a disaster. someone took natty light and barreled it for some reason. tastes like maple syrup which makes it much more palatable if you hold your nose. looks like a red stripe poured out
