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.

Lightly nutty malt, touch of caramel. Flavor is toffee, buttery, lightly fruity specialty malt, a touch dry and bitter at the finish.
