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 brewerys flagship Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale.

Bottle from Acknud. Thanks! Pours an average dark yellow with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is nutty banana and wet autumn leaves. Flavor is caramel and a slight butterscotch, with a watery nut finish. Watery mouthfeel.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Acknud, split with Naka. Pours light copper with white head, fizzy and gone in a blink. Big old caramel nose, touch of chocolate and mild butter. Tastes of kettle corn thats been dipped in butter and sprinkled with a touch of chocolate. Mild bitter at the end, earthy and slightly lingering. Medium bodied. Decent. Would like to try one fresh. It was in the basement a bit too long.

Aroma of fresh bread. Pours redish amber with a short lived white head. Tastes malty and bitter although equally it doent seem balanced. The two are divided between the begining and the finish, something I dont see often in any beer. Medium light mouthfeel. Overall impressive, mainly for the unbalanced palate that provides complexity and a desirable characteristic that is uncommon in beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 9, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was thin, white, and reduced to a thin white film that hung around for a while. There was some lace on the glass at the end. Aroma was of light molasses and husky grain. The flavor was the same with too much husk in my opinion. There was some light hop bitterness at the end. I preferred the Kentucky Horse Piss Beer I just tried to this one. Bleh.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2007
12 oz Bottle-Trade w/Acknud-Pours a clear copper color w/almost no head. Roasted malt/floral hop aroma. Floral hop flavor up front, followed up with some roasted malt, grain, a little caramel, & a slight sweet flavor. Has a little bit of a bitter finish. Solid brew, not spectacular. Easy to drink, mouthfeel is very thin though, kind of like a watered down Yuengling or Fat Tire. Id like to try it on tap, maybe if I ever get to Kentucky!

Poured golden amber. White head disappeared quickly to a slight lacing. Nose was very slight hops and a sweet malty aroma...some have described as caramel though I am not willing to pinpoint. Easy drinking, but a little watery. Basically an average english ale with very little hops. Its nothing special but would have again if in Kentucky, where it is the best thing in bottle or on tap at several bars I went to and the price is right.

This was shipped up to me by Acknud (thanks!). It pours a light tan color with nice head formation which is very durable for a non-secondary fermented beer. Aroma is light caramel balanced with hops. I could tell from this preview that this wasnt going to be a hop-fest, but might be nicely balanced (between malt and hop), like McTarnahans Amber. Flavor was fairly balanced. However, flavor was a bit watery with some cerealness. This beer was rather drinkable and uncomplicated, but not immensely commendable.
