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®.

savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Draft. Clear light amber with an off white head. Faint aroma of caramel, grain and light herbal tea. Flavor is malty mostly with a faint hop bitterness. Medium to light body with average carbonation. No real flaws, just a bit boring.

AssKicker (657) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - NOV 17, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Couleur ambrée un poil voilée, mousse correcte mais peu tenace. Nez plutôt agréable, bien rond sur les céréales et un peu sur le caramel. Mêmes sensation en bouche, avec un peu sucre en fin de bouche, mais qui se fait rattrapé par un zeste d'amertume. Du coup on pourrait croire à du moût fermenté qui aurait zappé la phase de houblonnage. Pas du tout l'impression que ça a squatté une barrique de bourbon par contre. Not so bad.

Bottle - bright orange with small white head. Good fruity aroma. Slight ting on tongue and in mouth. Ok fruity tasting, fairly high carbonation - maybe a bit too.

Banzale (357) - FRANCE - JUN 15, 2017
Acheter à auchan roncq (nord de france). Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambre reflet cuivre . Mousse légère mais présente très aéré. Au nez : c’est très léger ! Note de céréales et de malts caramel très fin ! En bouche : c’est comme au nez ! C’est léger et décevant. Malts caramel très fin , pas de longueurs et très peu d’arôme en arrière bouche . Un peu de sucre également mais léger comme toute la bière . Très aqueux.

@Lexington, Kentucky. Nice conference beer, but not much else to report about.

willisread (3653) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle many times. Pours a clear amber with a finger of white foam. Light toffee nose with some grain notes. Thinner than expected on the palate. Clean and easy drinking. Slightly sweet finish.

Pours amber with thin off-white head. Aroma is mostly glass and metallic farts. Flavors of burnt butter barnyard biscuits. This beer’ll have me doing the Dougie in no time! Wow wow wubzy!!! ;)

kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gd body with a one finger frothy off-white head. The nose is pretty light and nondescript. Just a bit of caramel malt, and a light graininess. The flavor is just as bland, some slightly sweet caramel malt, a little husky grain, some cereal notes, a hint of alcohol, zero hops. Pretty boring stuff. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slight cling on the finish. Very boring stuff.

2.8
JPDIPSO (6287) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Light orangish amber color with a small lid of off white bubbles. A light caramel malt and citric scent. I seem to be reminded of a chocolate covered orange slice. Sweet lightly toasted malt and some herbal notes. Some grainy characteristics that I find in many ambers that I just am not a fan of. 7/11
