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.

Hazy golden color. Funky aroma, of light Bourbon vanilla, candies and glue. Sweet mouthfeel, with some sweet vanilla too (which is not bad), but lacking of other elements. It has a nice Bourbon vanilla touch, but the rest is missing. And it’s quite strange.

saxo (19357) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are vanilla, bourbon, wood, malt, caramel and hops.

harrisoni (19189) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle from Utobeer drunk at home. Clear bright orange amber colour. Very thin white head. Oh boy, even from the aroma, I know I’m not going to like this. Yes lots of bourbon on the aroma. I mean if I wanted to drink bourbon, I’d drink bourbon. But I don’t. I want to drink beer. So as a beer almost entirely pointless. Otherwise nothing really wrong with it, except it reminds me of Innis & Gunn beers which isn’t always a good thing. Yep, this just isn’t my kind of beer.

mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma of cider, bourbon and apple. Flavour is heavy on bourbon, citrus and apple. Very oaky and alcoholic finish. Pretty thin and uncomplex. Decent.

3.1
yngwie (17186) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2013
On tap at Bakgårde Både &. It pours a clear, dark golden to amber body under a small, off-white head. In my opinion, there’s too much vanilla on the nose, of the bourbon kind, followed by some wood, alcohol and caramel. A little fruity touch in the far back. Malt driven flavor with vanilla, caramel and a faint fruity touch. Full body, with a little warmth. There’s a little bitterness in the very end. Not my preferred beer in any way, there’s too much focus on the bourbon, but it’s drinkable and all that. Won’t buy another one though. 130404

355ml bottle (GBBF2011)
Sweet buttery bourbon aroma. Soft and mellow. Good malty body, good balance, easy to drink. Touch sweet and slick.
