Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: UncleJimbo on 08-19-2001

Our Master Brewers describe Kentucky Ale as a marriage between two classic beer styles, Irish Red Ale and English Pale Ale. Light amber in color, Kentucky Ale owes its unique body and character to select imported malts and a pinch of wheat malt for a rich, smooth taste. The unique body and character of Kentucky Ale is heavily influenced by the water, drawn from aquifers in the limestone rock underlying the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky.

This beer is a little more complex than it would appear. It is rich and smooth. It is not hoppy per the current American fashion.

This is a very nice Ale. It's smooth and easy to drink. Very nice flavor, though not totally unique, very enjoyable.

Refreshing beer, tastes more like a standard lager to me. Hints of ale flavor creep into the finish.

Reminds me a lot of Miller - corn based and not a lot to it. I will not drink again.

I wasn't keen on this ale upon drinking the first bottle. However, I have finally decided this is an okay brew. There's not a lot of carbonation, the head starts out at about half an inch and quickly dissipates to a thin white peel. This is not an offensive drink, nor is it world class. But if you just want to enjoy a nice ale blend, then this might work for you. I'll buy it again on occasion.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is a bit weak, some light malts. Taste is well balanced. Hops and a mild bitterness up front, malts at the finish, some hints of caramel. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and easy drinking beer.
