Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after dinner drink.
Kentucky Ale Made by Alltech’s Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company – Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale – 12 oz bottle poured into a goblet. 9% abv. from trade on RateBeer.com .
Appearance: Pours a clear amber gold with no head.
Aroma: This smells like a glass of whiskey. I’m getting sweet(vanilla/vanilla extract) and woody notes.
Taste: Bourbon and soda water.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and medium carbonation.
Overall: What a trip!! This is quite the gimmick, in line with Tequiza or something. I finished the beer, but it was real weird having this almost artificial whiskey bourbon flavored beer. Don’t get me wrong, I love Bourbon Barrel Aged Stouts and such, this was much different.
