Notes/Commercial Description:
Kentucky Common is a modern interpretation of an ale style native to pre-prohibition Louisville. Historically the beer was dark in color, creamy, and tart as a result of the introduction of lactobacillus bacteria by sour mashing. Local Option Bierkwerker took up the task of brewing this once familiar style - electing to use specialty grains rather than a large percentage of corn - yielding an adventurous taste profile befitting both conventional and courageous palates.

From on-tap, a hazy dark brown color with two fingers of creamy beige head. Nice lacing left behind.

Aroma of oak and bourbon along with tart lactic notes and roasted malts.

Tasted of tart black cherry, roasted malts, bourbon and oak and wine grapes.

Medium bodied and creamy with a moderate carbonation.

A very nice take on the American Wild Ale. So good.
