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.

Maxbier (949) - Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Clear copper with thin white head. Light malt and creamed corn aroma. Bland malt flavor with some earthy hop bitter to make it taste like an ale (vs malt soup), Hints of wet paper but not offensive enough to spit it out. Overall it tastes like a cheap beer.

drjay44 (3652) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with some lacing, over a hazy particle laden amber (SRM 9) body......nose is light toffee/caramel, egg whites, light herbal hops....taste is slightly sweet with toffee/caramel notes, light cereal malts, finishing with a light hops bitterness.....mouth feel, light watery body, no alcohol, fizzy carbonation. This is a simple Amber, with fairly prominent unclean flaws. It could be a poor quality storage of the bottle results in a not very good beer, as opposed to the base recipe being off. BJCP 5/1/9/3/4

drowland (8550) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2015
5/17/15. 12oz bottle from a random gas station in TN. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Mildly skunked aroma - doesnt appear to be fully brown glass and who knows how long it sat at the gas station, I guess? Anyway, mild maltiness and a hint of skunk, reminds me of Becks Dark or something like that. Mild malty flavor, hints at caramel, mild skunk. Meh.

Pours copper with a foamy white head. Sweet malty aroma, some toffee. Earthy hop character. Quite mild in flavour. Mostly caramel and a little cocoa, floral hop bitterness at the back of the palate. Okay but nothing special

Jolie couleur ambre et un nez de geuse acide. Une bulle vive et dense en bouche. Un arme qui vient dun bloc sans traine. Jai du mal dcrire larme en question, mais jai trouv apas commun et ma foi plutt agrable face dautres Ale un peu trop "Straight". Jy reviendrai en essayant de qualifier cet arme ... Quelque chose de malt et florale. ...
