Review taken from notes: Spring 2013.

12 oz silver and black can with orange artwork. Not a bad label and design, but definitely not spectacular. Maybe a bit too much going on yet in a simple way make for a straightforward design. But hey, what's inside matters. Lets find out. Poured into a standard American pint glass.

A - cloudy amber with tones of a rusted rose brown body color. Fluffy head on the pour quickly turns to a small ring of lace leaving a bit of stick, but nothing extreme.

S - roasted malt. Grain. Slightly Burnt yeast. A nice nutty character and a biscuity style malt backbone with some small bitter undertones.

T - sweet caramel. Grainy bread notes. A tiny hint of dark fruit paired with some Dark malts. A nutty presence underneath its amber style yeast. Nice finish.

M - medium bodied and a pretty nice texture of thickness. Not as thick as I'd prefer but still enough to make a very smooth amber ale experience. Nice flavors and a tasty finish.

O - well done from West Sixth. Glad to see Kentucky craft beer taking that next step. West Sixth are definitely producing some quality brews and this is worthy of a try from anyone. Very enjoyable.

3.8/5  rDev +5.6%

Undated can purchased earlier this month near the brewery.
Pours a deep amber color; clear with a large bone-colored head that has very good retention and leaves marvelous lacing.
Limited aroma with a bit more flavor. Very good sweet/bitter balance, shaded towards the bitter side, yet with more roasted malt than hop flavor. Surprisingly durable, hop-tinged, roasted malt aftertaste.
M: Exceptional; medium-light, airy body without wateriness; excellent, soft, medium carbonation.
O: excellent for style. Just trounces the other Lexington amber (Kentucky Ale) that preceded it.
