BEER INFO

Kentucky, United States

Style: English Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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
