Using each of their strengths to their advantages, the Blue Stallion Brewing Company pairs up with Alltech's Lexington Brewing Company for a taste of lager that fits the spring season but props up the light bock flavor with a boisterous foundation built from beer strength and undeniable bourbon.

Simple syrups greet the taste and aromas with its elegant maltiness, faint caramel and its supple honey tones. Equipped with its floral upstart, light bread and bakliva come to mind as the lager's gently rolling sweetness reveals a mild hop presence and the bourbon barrel spices things up a bit.

Growing intense over the middle, the common Maibock flavors are traded for a more savory dopple-demeanor. Its light golden body is indicative of its strong honey sweetness, bready firmness and light caramel presence. Its a graceful yet boastful beer.

Finishing with a strong bourbon overlay, the spices of the indigenous bluegrass booze balances the sweetness to an even-keel offset. Finishing malty-sweet but with wood spices, vanilla and coconut to give the ale much more than honey and caramel. Its trailing warmth turns this commonly quaffable ale into a delicate sipper.

Trying a new review format.

Very clear copper, aroma dominated by booze and nutty malt. Hints of vanilla. Booze dominates the flavor, finishing bready and lightly bitter and crackery, with oak aftertaste. Slightly sweet, booze overwhelms initially, barrel overwhelms finish. Glimmers of toasted malt throughout.
