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 brewery’s flagship Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®.

Malty aroma. Bright orange body with a hint of brown. Flavor is malty and a wee-bit watery.

Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2008
Bottle from Ashland Beverage Center. The beer is a clear yellow-amber color with a thin and foamy white head that disappears quickly. Thin strings of lacing. Mild malt and caramel aroma. Light body with with sweet grain, malt and fruit flavors. Just a hint of hops bitterness in the background. The finish is short with a sweet malt aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2008
12 oz bottle. Classic yellow beer appearance, honey-corn nose with a light sweet finish. Not great but better than Budweiser.

2.6
IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 10, 2008
12 oz bottle from acknud! Nose of caramel, and grain, with a light vanilla and fruity pear note in the background; dark gold with a small off-white head; flavor has a bit of fruitiness, toffee, and a tiny buttery note. Cool bottle cap with a horses head on top! Maybe it’s brewed by the Godfather!

2.3
Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2008
Shared with Juart from a trade with Aknud. A clear amber color with a small fizzy white head that was gone by the time I described it. Nose is a little caramel apple and some corn. A little bit of toffee/caramel flavor, but not much. Probably would have been better fresh. Very little carbonation, but not completely thin.

2.5
KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2008
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.

2.8
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 that’s 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.

jerrykurl (40) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Aroma of fresh bread. Pours redish amber with a short lived white head. Tastes malty and bitter although equally it doen’t seem balanced. The two are divided between the begining and the finish, something I don’t 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.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 22, 2008
12 oz bottle acquired in trade with Acknud. Poured a sunset golden yellow, head was small and off white. Aroma was a bit grainy and slightly sweet. Thanks for this one!
