COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale® is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale® is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky’s finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Launched in 2006, it has grown to become the flagship beer of the premier name in barrel-aged beers: Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear, golden amber with a little lacing head. Slight chemical nose of bourbon. Flavour is light bourbon, somewhat a clear flavour, but still light. Quite interesting light bodied yet powerful flavoured. Ends with a lasting bourbon flavour.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of jsquire. Clear, deep golden with a small, off-white head. Distinct bourbon aroma. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel but otherwise completely dominated by smooth bourbon flavours. The finish is dry. Quite intriguing an idea to bourbon barrel such a "small beer". 180907

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Light softish palate. Very sweet orange and cream soda soft drinks! Vanilla oak. Finishes dry. An odd odd beer. Pretty good for half a glass - but that was more than enough!

Bottle. Clear orange amber color, medium white head. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, coffee. Taste has more whiskey and coffee. A bit heavy on the whiskey for me.
