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.

Appearance – Amber leaning towards red
Aroma – Light aroma that’s malty sweet with some toasty character.
Taste – Fresh, malty, toasty – very similar to an Irish red ale but lighter. Next to no bitterness
Finish – Clean with a slight malty aftertaste. Still no bitterness in the end.

I poured this average looking labeled beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a orangey amber looking concoction tat looked a little on the cloudy side. The head was tan and decent. The beer smelled pretty good like sweet rolls. However the taste was ciderish, much like the crap I made with the Mr. Beer kit. I will not buy again,yuk!

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours out a light amber with a fleeting head that gives way to decent enough lacing.

S - Carmel and malts with some hop background.

T - Good malt flavor with a nice balanced hop follow on.

M - Very good with a nice carbonation level and a good finish.

O - For the style advertised this is a nice choice. Maybe I'm biased living so close to the brewer but I think I'd like this if it came from 1000 miles away.
