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.

From the 355 ml. bottle. Sampled on April 3, 2014.
This has a nice looking light to medium amber pour, more bronze, with a modest and short-lasting white head. Good clarity.
Roasted caramel malts are immediate on the nose along with a a slight but earthy hop presence. Not a vibrant hop presence but enough to pick up something.
Light to medium body. But a bit of astringency.
Like the nose, I get a good caramel malt character in the flavor which stands strong for a moment as the earthy, clean hop finish kicks in. I found it be drinkable and likable.

Appearance: Hazy deep copper-colored body, with a small, somewhat coarse head, which persists fairly well. The lacing is thick and patchy, covering much of the glass wall. Carbonation is rather minimal.
Aroma: Mild toasted malt, some caramel, and restrained grassy hops comprise the aroma.
Taste: Opens with slight toasted malts and a fair portion of earthy English hops. As the taste progresses, there is a little caramel as well, although the hops dominate throughout. Finishes with a moderate burst of caramel and a lingering hop presence.
Mouth feel: Soft, fairly full, with modestly sharp carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: Though described as "a marriage of English Pale Ale and Irish Red Ale", Kentucky Ale seems more restrained than either of these. Its not bad, merely unremarkable.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
